A weekend in Paris, the Extraordinary Assembly of the French Pirates 2012
vom November 10, 2012 geschrieben von Anouk Neeteson

"The French Pirate party (1000 members) held a rather disciplined but
very emotional internal revolution at the meeting. The 'line of
command' was too pyramidical according to the opinions of the members.
Several regions in France, far from Paris and representing a large
proportion of the French Pirates, felt they were being left out of
'the decision-making'.

The Lagarde List: A Matter of Transparency or a Violation of Personal Data?
vom November 9, 2012 geschrieben von Stathis Leivaditis

Prosecutor recently ordered the arrest of Greek journalist Kostas
Vaxevanis for publicising a list with the names of Greek depositors in
Swiss banks. The famous “Lagarde List” includes 2,059 names of
Greek depositors in the HSBC bank in Switzerland. The "Lagarde List"
was published recently  in a special issue of the magazine “Hot
Doc” but despite this two governments still deny its existence.

Bloggers Sued for Copyright Infringement, PP Membership Evidence of Guilt
vom November 6, 2012 geschrieben von Anton Nordenfur

Bildombudsmannen is well known in Swedish Pirate circles for
contacting websites concerning copyright infringment, and threatening
to sue them if they don't pay an invoice. Recently they targeted a
blog editor, but this time with a tactic not previously known - using
the editor's membership in the Swedish Pirate Party as evidence of
guilt.

New Draft Reveals OpenCleanIT Was Shortened
vom November 4, 2012 geschrieben von Paul Wardenga

This is an update to yesterday's article, which analysed the draft
CleanIT document published and opened for comment by the OpenCleanIT
platform. Another draft of the CleanIT document has been published
(version 0.77 dated October 30, whereas the previously discussed
document was version 0.762, dated October 24). It seems as if the
version published on the OpenCleanIT platform was severely shortened.

Pirates open up CleanIT. But has it changed?
vom November 3, 2012 geschrieben von Paul Wardenga

CleanIT is a public-private partnership project by several European
governments, internet industry firms, and NGOs that has been subject
to strong criticism. Opponents fear CleanIT endangers civil rights and
internet freedom, while keeping their work hidden from public
oversight. This secrecy has now been reduced.

A New Internet Blacklist in Russia
vom November 2, 2012 geschrieben von Zbigniew Łukasiak

The Violentacrez affair made it all too visible how much horrible and
filthy content there is freely available over the internet.  There is
no question that we need to protect our children from exposure to that
trash, but does that mean that we should accept just about any means
to stop it?

#exile6e – a Pirate Docuseries
vom October 30, 2012 geschrieben von Anton Nordenfur

The European Parliament has long been criticized for a lack of
transparency, both in the drafting and decision making, as well as in
the chances it leaves for citizens to understand how the parliament
really works. In an attempt to increase the transparency, MEP Amelia
Andersdotter from the Swedish Pirate Party has started a series of
documentary webisodes, that recently started its second season.

You Can’t Win Them All – Election Results from Finland and the ACT
vom October 29, 2012 geschrieben von Andrew Reitemeyer

Pirates in two countries have had to face disappointing results in
recent elections. While the Swiss and the Czechs are still celebrating
recent electoral victories the Pirates of Finland and the ACT region
in Australia  must recharge their spirits from the recent low results.

Austrian General Convention Made Clear Ship For Upcoming Elections
vom October 28, 2012 geschrieben von Dominic Guhl

In Austria, the General Convention of Pirates, prepared the Party for
the upcoming National Council elections in autumn 2013. It emphasised
that both Germany and Austria could be electing their parliaments in
the same season and where the success and fate of one Pirate Party
could influence the results for the other through time-near publicity.

Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Portugal, France and other
countries in Europe and elsewhere in what was called "#OpINDECT".

Pirates Ready for Municipal Elections on Sunday in Finland
vom October 26, 2012 geschrieben von Andrew Reitemeyer

We are hearing a lot about Sweden recently because of their massive
influx of new members . But what of the other Nordic countries? It
looks like Finland will be making the headlines in the coming days.

municipalities in the municipal elections that are being held on
