Damage Control: Sicko to begin screening early

In what could be considered an expected tactic after Michael Moore's comments last week that he doesn't mind of people download his new movie, Weinstein Company plans to release Sicko earlier than the previous July 29 date.

If you didn't already know, Sicko is all over the internet, so Moore and Co. might have some difficulty getting the bums on seats they expected. Moore is on record as saying he doesn't agree with copyright laws, and it's not about the money; it's about getting the message out to as many people as possible.

But now according to this article, Moore is not too happy with the situation, suggesting the high quality copy of his film appearing on-line was deliberate sabotage.

You can't open the flood gates and then stand infront of the torrent (meant both figuratively and litterally).

This has a good chance to end up being a test case for the RIAA. Michael Moore's movies undoubtedly make loads of money so if the box-office results are poor you can bet the RIAA will start waving the 'we told ya so' card.

I would like to see Sicko stand its ground in the face of the torrent flood (as Jake put it) which would stick it to the RIAA.
