Herzog shared his thoughts about piracy on Tuesday during the Visions in Nyon film festival in Switzerland. According to the Independent, after Ukraine producer Illia Gladshtein told Herzog he could only find the director's film on illegal torrent sites, Herzog responded saying, "Piracy has been the most successful form of distribution worldwide."

The German director, who was at the festival to receive the Maitre du Réel lifetime achievement said he preferred when people paid him for his films but if someone can't find his work on "Netflix or state-sponsored television, then you go and access it as a pirate."

Herzog, who has directed more than 60 films added, "If someone like you steals my films through the internet or whatever, fine, you have my blessing."
