When I founded the Swedish Pirate Party and decided to change the political landscape of the copyright monopoly, I frequently told reporters that the plan was to change Sweden, Europe, and the world – in that order.
Ναι, ναι το γράφει αυτός που μερικοί ειρωνεύεστε, χωρίς να σας έχει κάνει κάτι... διακωμωδείτε το όνομα του και χλευάζετε... και είμαι σίγουρη οτι εσείς θα κάνατε καλύτερα ότι έκανε...
The key to changing the world’s copyright monopoly regime lies in Europe and the European Union.
However, the laws and enforcement of the copyright monopolies, patent monopolies and other protectionism schemes are at the national level in the European Union. That means that a state in Europe can change its laws significantly, and still enjoy the shield against trade sanctions that comes with being a member of the European Union. (The country may get some heat within the EU, but that’s not going to have any consequences if there is political momentum in the direction of the change. EU rules are routinely ignored when politically inconvenient.)
To see why Europe is the next step, we need to understand the political dynamics of the Industrial Protectionism supporters (copyright monopoly and patent monopoly rooters). These schemes have essentially been forced onto Eastern Europe by the countries in the west of Europe – notably the UK, France, and Germany. But tides are changing.
Let’s take a closer look at Germany. The Pirate Party there has enjoyed quite a bit of success, but has come tumbling back down to a more baseline level of support after failing to live up to extreme amounts of hype around the party. If it manages to get a kingmaker position in the German Parliament, it has the power to shift Germany’s stance completely on these matters (and the other parties would gladly give up such a peripheral issue – peripheral to them, anyway – in exchange for the Office of Chancellor).
ακούς? ακούω να λές!
Αυτός είναι ο λόγος να μπουν και οι Γερμανοί και όποιοι άλλοι πειρατές σε εθνικά κοινοβούλια.
The day the world’s largest economy (Europe) decides that copyright monopolies are bullshit, they will practically cease to exist overnight elsewhere, too. The same goes for any gradual dismantling.
Και για να μου κάνει και κάποιος report άσχετα απο το χώρο του Post " Διεθνή & Ευρωπαϊκά Θέματα" ότι είναι στα "ξένα"
Do we give a fuck, or we're still inside our own bubble?
