Introducing the Australian Pirate Party

Pirate Party AustraliaIs downloading of copyrighted content theft? Should we reform the concepts of digital and intellectual property? Do new technologies like BitTorrent really require new criminal statutes or should record companies change their business models? Is the criminalisation of file sharing really just protecting the interests of mega corporations?

Tonight we welcome to the show David Crafti, President of the Pirate Party of Australia to discuss these and more questions.

What is the Pirate Party all about? From the pp website:

Real property is something that you can touch. In simple terms, if one person possesses it, another person cannot possess it at the same time. Intellectual property is information. If a person makes a copy of a song, the person who owns the original is not deprived of the song.

The Pirate Party is dedicated to protecting civil liberties with an emphasis on reform of copyright law, freedom of speech and protection of privacy. Other policy areas include opposition to internet censorship, support for an R18+ rating for games and providing parents with software tools to manage access to the internet.

The Australian Pirate Party has affiliations with movements around the world which are rapidly gaining in popularity.

Property rights both physical and intellectual must be defended. Anarchism will not work as an economic model. Ownership empowers individuals and fosters healthy boundaries. Anyone disagreeing with this view should study the word “Sovereignty” in detail.

This is an issue that’s bugged me for a long time, it’s refreshing to hear real, non-manipulative views expressed out loud. I hope the Pirate Party picks up steam, but there are a sizeable percentage who strongly agree with the current system of persecution of an individual for copying something for non-commercial purposes and are not afraid to express those views online.
