The Pirate Party's manifesto is out, and it is promoting the right to format shift, the right to time shift and the right to share files, while still maintaining a stance against counterfeiting and profiting directly from other people's work without paying them. Most importantly, they believe that in this fast moving world, 10 years of copyright protection--not 70--is long enough. (via Br3nda Wallace)
