TapPirate Party

Pirate PartyA piece of news that has made no impact at all in the uk. The Piratpartiet (Pirate Party) has gained one seat in the European Parliament. They polled 7.1% of the vote in Sweden on a manifesto of Copyright Freedom and protest of the conviction of the Pirate Bay organisers earlier in the year. Their platform is not “make everything free” but more a call to consider the rights and needs of all the people, particularly in regard to Intellectual Property such as Copyright & Patents. When it is mostly the young that are caught up in this, no more is “I’d like to help you son, but you’re too young to vote” acceptable.
