Piratpartiet: Medborgarrätt? Behövs den?

July 18, 2010

The swedish Pirate Party (Piratpartiet) about civil rights:

Vad är Medborgarrätt egentligen? Och varför behövs det?

Roughly translated headline: Its not about the right to download for free, its about the right of free thinking.

Free download has became a symbolic question, and a reason for the old industries/politicians to disassemble fundamental Civil and political rights. In some cases they do it on purpose, in some cases they do not understand that their actions on preventing file-sharing, also prevents/breaks down the whole society.

Its not about free download. Its about:

  • The right of Privacy
  • Protection of sources
  • The right of Anonymity/Integrity
  • The right of not being surveilled
  • The right of sharing information and knowledge
