Arrr Pirates Poised to Plunder EU - Parlay?? or Partay?
here is a manifesto of the 'pirate party' whom i have just heard about due to their winning a seat in some election in europe. here is what they're about, I am so on board 100% with their right to privacy stuff, but their main agenda is freedom of information and reform of copyright laws. I'm a little unsure of how people who create things, like music or software or novels or medicines, would be paid/funded if their creations become public domain. but this group believes pretty strongly that everything would work better that way... or maybe they all agree they like free shit? lemme know if you have any wisdom on this piracy topic. I'm inclined to supporting them since i've 'stolen' music etc, that and i like bottles of rum. But should i be concerned about the credit where credit is due? Will their radical ideas on revamping copyright laws infringe on people's rights to profit from their inventions?
