German Pirates debate Europe, Economics and Eurocrisis
vom October 6, 2012 geschrieben von Paul Wardenga

On 29 and 30 September 2012, over 100 Pirates from the Pirate Party of
Germany met to discuss Economic and European Policy at the Conference
for Europe, Economics and Finance (or EuWiKon, as the German acronym
goes) in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia.

PPI blocked from becoming observer members of WIPO
vom October 3, 2012 geschrieben von Josef Ohlsson Collentine

In its General Assembly meeting of October, 3, 2012, the World
Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has chosen to wait until
2013 to take a decision on the observer membership application of the
PPI. Torn between the recent evidences of the Pirate Parties influence
in several national elections and the objections of several of its
member states, the UN agency chose to take no side and wait for a
future ruling about political parties applications.

Open Source Textbooks: Learning Was Meant to be Free
vom October 2, 2012 geschrieben von Brad Hall

On Friday, 28 September 2012, a small group of Finnish math teachers
decided to have a hackathon, no, not the normal software type of
hackathon. This group of teachers decided to hack together a math
textbook. In three days.

Pirate Lost Mayoral Election in Saarlouis, Germany
vom September 30, 2012 geschrieben von Anton Nordenfur

The Pirate candidate was Thomas Brockmann, 50, a freelance journalist
who was seeking to bring more transparency and citizen participation
to Saarlouis. Brockmann also suggested city projects for the citizens,
such as a public swimming pool.

Send a Friend to NDAA Jail
vom September 29, 2012 geschrieben von Andrew Reitemeyer

Icelandic Pirate Birgitta Jónsdóttir is working against the 2012
NDAA (National Defence Authorisation Act) that allows the US military
to detain citizens from any country, including US citizens, without
limit and without trial. She recently tweeted about an app from
DemandProgress that aims to spread awareness and opposition to the
act.

Portugal Declares File-Sharing for Personal Use Legal
vom September 28, 2012 geschrieben von Anton Nordenfur

After the anti-piracy group ACAPOR reported IP addresses of 2,000
suspected file sharers, the Portuguese Department of Investigation and
Penal Action (DIAP) has come to a somewhat surprising conclusion: not
only will these file sharers not be prosecuted, but it seems that file
sharing for personal use is not illegal in Portugal.

Running an Information Stand
vom September 28, 2012 geschrieben von Andrew Reitemeyer

An information stand can be a very effective way to let people know
that the Pirate Party exists and is active in their area. It can also
be a way to recruit new members to the party, get signatures for a
petition or promote a candidate for an election.
