Thumbs Up The Pirate Party is Increasing Around The World


Pirate Parties on Track to Join WIPO

By Ben Jones 4 August 2012

Copyright agencies were probably not too happy to hear that one of their bastions of domination – the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) – has proposed observer membership status to Pirate Parties International (PPI), the international Pirate Party organisation.

As observer members they’ll be able to participate in meetings, but not vote (that is reserved for member countries). Currently, the list of observer members (some 250+) mostly focuses on artist and ‘industry’ groups, with only a few public-interest groups, such as the EFF, IP Justice, and Union for the Public Domain in there.

“The Pirate Party movement is spreading rapidly around the globe with parties now in over 60 countries,” PPI Co-chairman Gregory Engels told TorrentFreak.

“I am glad that WIPO is interested in the dialog with this part of civil society that thinks that the time for a massive reform of the copyright systems has come.”

The vote will reportedly take place on the morning of October 6th. Check back then for the results.

Oh I bet they aren't happy about this one. The reason the Pirate Party started was because of railroading laws in without the input of the public, rules and laws made only for the vested interests, and the lack of transparency in it's dealings.

From this has come the initial Pirate Party and it has spread because people recognize that their governments are corrupt and they have no input into the process. This blockage of the public input is important. All these new laws and regulations to protect IP never considers Fair Use or Public Domain. The deal with copyright is a limited time protection for the IP holder with the understanding that it will revert to the public when that protection is over with. What we are not seeing is any protections granted to the public in return for stricter IP protections. It's always a one way package, only for the IP holder.

The Pirate Party has been gaining in popularity because citizens have no input. No one is looking out for their interests in this bought and paid for game.

The Pirate Party is good for democracy.

When the corporations put their puppets in the government, or sponsor the candidates, who is representing the public?

The rest of the so called independent politicians, have to deal with all the lobbyists.
This is from Wikipedia;
"Currently around 15,000 Brussels-based lobbyists (consultants, lawyers, associations, corporations, NGOs etc.) seek to influence the EU’s legislative process. Some 2,600 special interest groups have a permanent office in Brussels. Their distribution is roughly as follows: European trade federations (32%), consultants (20%), companies (13%), NGOs (11%), national associations (10%), regional representations (6%), international organizations (5%) and think tanks (1%)"

So who is paying all these people? So much for democracy without corruption.

They already got it so far in court, that the individual must prove that he/she isn't guilty. This is definitely pushed through by the corporate world. Look at how the copyright business deals with the individual. In the past, they had to prove, based on evidence, that an individual was guilty.

The Pirate Party is trying to counteract these practices.
