Italian Pirate Party to launch today?

While the Pirate Party already has an association in Italy, it seems likely that this afternoon it is going to register as an official party. That’s an exciting and encouraging step.

I of course don’t know what its platform will be, but if it’s similar to that of the other Pirate Parties, then I won’t agree with all of it, but will still welcome its presence as a voice not only for an open Internet — far wider than copyright reform — but for the set of values an open Internet permits: new forms of collaboration, lowering the hurdles to expression, bold experimentation and its concurrent willingness to fail, transparency, and joy in the new possibilities.

  3. Hi David,

    you might not be aware of the 5 star Movement that already exists in Italy and that was inspired also by Rick Falkvinge (pirates party) who participated at it’s foundation day.
    The 5 star Movement is the only one that refuses all public fundings (no other party does in Italy) and that has it’s organization totaly based on line. It has already elected people in many of the main towns in Italy.

    best,
    Davide.

  4. I read the platform of the Italian Pirate Party and the program is interesting for me!
    Some points need more information, trademarks and trade secrets, etc., that are complicated!
    But I’d like to know why you disagree with the other platforms of the Pirate Party!
    thanks

  5. Marcello, I’m just leaving myself room to disagree. I’m not sure I agree with the International Pirate Party on patents (although I do believe in copyright reform), and the German Pirate Party has some economic proposals that I don’t know enough about.

    There is no party or politician that I agree with completely. For example, I’m an enthusiastic supporter of President Obama, but there are certainly policies and actions of his with which I disagree.

  6. Currently in Italy there are two Pirate Parties, non of which represent the values or ideals of the citizens of the net.

    Dear Italian Pirate Parties you going in the wrong direction. Change your route or sink forever.

  7. Prima di tutto grazie!!
    I am interested in addition to Pirate Party, in your way of reading the information!!
    I do not know yet James Gleick’s book, but I believe that “information” are never enough!
    Sometimes could be difficult, anyways it’s better
    thanks again for your book –Elogio del disordine- that we are reading inside our University in Roma!!

  8. David, I never thought that you’d come out as favoring crime. You must indeed be well paid by Google (the largest copyright criminal of all time).

  9. I’d like to know why you disagree with the other platforms of the Pirate Party!
