Tomorrow, the UK government is set to release a ‘white paper’ on piracy over the internet. The assertion is that internet piracy is costing thousands of jobs, and threatening the film, radio and TV industries, as well as life in the free West as we know it today. BULL.

Who needs ‘Drag me to Hell’ – when we’re already there?
They’ve turned the world’s teenagers into whores, music into a repetitive synth-pop parody and now they want to ensure their little profit party?
In the latest issue on ONE Magazine, Peter Simpson takes a look at all this in Welcome to Generation Free. It’s time to get active, and stop being so PC about yet another shiestering of citizens around the world. In Sweden, this controversy has given birth to a new, and third largest political party: The Pirate Party —
Their Goals: -Reform Copyright Law; -Abolish the Patent System; -Renew Individual Rights to Privacy
