Los Angeles - Documentary director Michael Moore's new health care-related film "Sicko," which will be released in theaters by The Weinstein Company on June 29, has been leaked onto peer-to-peer file-sharing networks, according to published reports.

The movie is available for download for free on the BitTorrent file-sharing network, and linked to through tracker sites including Sweden's The Pirate Bay.

Earlier this week, Reuters reported that Moore placed a copy of the film in Canada, fearing possible confiscation by the U.S. government due to a dispute over a segment filmed during an unauthorized trip to Cuba.

Moore has also been previously quoted as saying: "I don't agree with copyright laws and I don't have a problem with people downloading the movie and sharing it with people as long as they’re not trying to make a profit off my labour."
