I’m A Pirate. Arrrr.

So it seems that Three Strikes Laws are to hit Britain. Downloaders to get their internet all cut off.

No judicial oversight, no trial. Upon accusation by the big media companies, you’re guilty until proven innocent.

More: Group punishment. Daddy downloads, wife and kids get cut off too. Marvellous.

Prompted me to join The UK Pirate Party. See if we can’t wind back some of the database state, some of the surveillance society, some of the insanity of over-extended copyright monopolies.

Can’t hurt to try, can it?
