Michael Moore's "Sicko" turns up on the Internet two weeks before its release

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- It isn't on YouTube anymore, but viewers trying to get a free look at Michael Moore's newest film still have other options.

YouTube pulled links to pirated versions of the health care documentary "Sicko" over the weekend, citing copyright claims by the film's distributor.

A 124-minute version of the film had been posted on YouTube by at least two users. It could be watched in 14 video clips. Each segment had received 500 to 600 views before it was removed.

But the popular file-sharing Web site ,The Pirate Bay, indicates at least two-thousand available copies of the movie. Another film-sharing site indicates it had another 14-hundred available copies of "Sicko."

The film chronicles the struggles of ordinary Americans trying to navigate the health care bureaucracy.
