This is not a drill.

Late last night CET, www.piratpartiet.se went live.

Late last night CET, www.piratpartiet.se went live. The goal is to create a political one-issue party centered around the abolishment of copyright as we know it along with most IP laws in Sweden by getting into the parliament in this year's elections. Secondary, but equally important goals are to strengthen personal integrity by rejecting the EU "eavesdropping" directive and expand the "postal secret act" to include all forms of communication, regardless of carrier technology.

The name quite literally means The Pirate Party. 1500 signatures are required to register a political party in Sweden and at last count, we had 1916 (unverified) and counting. In less than a day.

The website is all in bork-de-bork and there are no current plans to translate it into understandlish, sorry. Dagens Industri (daily business mag) had a blurb on it's front page just now. Aftonbladet (one of the two big tabloids) just called. And all we did in the way of marketing was to drop the URL in a DC hub last night...

We live in very interesting times.

...for the slogans at the top right:

Det ska kosta upphovsrätten att bli statsminister 2006

The ska costs upheaval rates from AT&T, say blingbling state ministers in 2006.

Tillsammans är vi tillräckligt många.

'Til someone airs vi, 'til rickety manga.

Yes, I speak fluent bork-de-bork.

Anyway, congrats on making a splash and best o' luck with the party. Sounds like a fun idea. :-)

I particularly am interested in "Placeholder placeholder placeholder". ;-)

Cheers,

Ethelred

:-D

Det ska kosta upphovsrätten att bli statsminister 2006.

The cost of becoming prime minister in 2006 will be the copyright law.

Tillsammans är vi tillräckligt många.

Together we are many enough.

Avskaffa upphovsrätten. På riktigt.

Abolish copyright. For real.

Placeholder placeholder placeholder

Bork-de-bork meatballs and smorgasbord!

Nope, sorry.

Been trying to find Kalle Ankas Julafton but the only format I found was for the PSP. Lazy Pirates.

Du skulle ha sagt till innan så kunde jag ha spelat in det. Och det är lite tidigt att programmera Myth-boxen för nästa års Kalle redan nu... :-)
