The Swedish Pirate Party presents their election manifesto at Torrentfreak

(via Boing Boing)

"Instead of being limited to a cultural canon decided from above, the youths of today has access to the music, theater and pictures of an entire world. This is something we should embrace, not something we should try to forbid. File sharing is good for society and its people."

Actually a surprisingly strong manifesto, detailing what they believe in and how they hope to help achieve it. Shame they stuck to the name of 'pirate party'.
There's bad feeling against our overly tight intellectual property laws. Could this be the beginning of coherent opposition to the over protection of patents and copyright? I would definitely support moves to push the lawyers back.


  • I think that we should set up a 'virtual' person to stand to be the Mayor of London at the next election. We should look to get a client to sponsor us to pay for the deposit and see if we can get some virtual mayor elected to run London....
