The UK Pirate Party has published its “core beliefs“:
1. The reform of Copyright and Patent Laws
2. The protection of our Right to Privacy
3. The protection of our Right to Freedom of Speech
What’s interesting is how tightly focussed the Pirate Party is. I think that’s wise: otherwise it would just become another Raving Monster Loony Party. By restricting its message to an area that it understands, and which is crying out for reform, I’m sure it will benefit in the long run. It will also, usefully, force the other parties to frame their own responses in this domain.
