The Pirate Party UK Launches its 2010 Election Manifesto


Tue, Mar 23rd, 2010 13:49 by capnasty NEWS

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)
