Re: "Pirate Party" wins 9% in Berlin-state elections
Just wanted to add that the Pirate party has already two Swedes in the European Parliament (as part of the Green in the EP). They are active in many European countries but with the Berlin election now, there are pirates in the Berlin, the European Parliament and on municipal in Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Denmark and the Czech Republic.
I think the party has some valid demands. Especially when it comes to privacy rights and protection and internet neutrality. But in regards to sharing videos and stuff it smells a bit self serving to me. Still, the Pirate's success is a good thing as it makes above issues more important and motivates for example the Greens to get more active about it.
