Yeah, posting movies online without consent of the copyright holder is a 
copyright infringement.

Further to the copyright and public domain issues raised by this case...see 
url below.

Quote<<<February 14, 2015: Cryptome, a site that posts hacker documents and 
that sort of thing, incorrectly assumes that, because the film was entered 
as evidence, it has entered the public domain and is free for anyone to use.
Cryptome posts two copies of the full film for download on its website. " 
Defense provided 2 DVDs of Citizenfour as exhibit in Edwards suit. So film 
in public domain as unsealed record. On HBO 2/23/15. Leaking $.

"I personally doubt this use of the film would avoid copyright infringement 
of uses of the film that were not otherwise fair, eg, comment on legal 
issues pertaining to the film," Jerome Reichman, a professor at Duke 
University's Center for the Study of the Public Domain, told me.

In other words, you can probably download and watch the film to comment on 
whether or not this lawsuit has any merit. Edwards and Lamfers, therefore, 
have, by filing this lawsuit, perhaps indirectly exposed classified 
information to more people. In any case, there are now easy-to-access, 
direct download links to the film.>>>end of quote
