Get the latest Yes Men movie for free (or donation)

TV won't show the latest Yes Men film so one of the reasons The Yes Men decided to release a version via VODO download was that they’re being sued by the US Chamber of Commerce for material contained within the film, and none of the networks are willing touch it until the lawsuit is resolved.

The Yes Men didn’t just do this to give the impression that it’s not all about commercial gain. They also did it to avoid paying for E&O or “errors and omissions” insurance, which documentary filmmakers are often required to buy if they can’t verify that every detail in the fore or background of every shot is free of copyright infringement. The E&O requirement is a huge hurdle for independent filmmakers.
