Swedish Pirate Party launches instance of the Etherpad open source code

The code was released by Google a few hours ago, Piratpartiet‘s announcement is published over here (Google translation).

The original Etherpad service had in a short time become a killer application for collaborative work within at least the Swedish, and according to my personal experience, in the Finnish Pirate Party as well. Google’s initial plan was probably to use Etherpad’s tech with Wave and to shut down the original service entirely.

The Etherpad open source project is available here.

Rick Falkvinge: Open letter to the music industry

“This, of course, brings our agreement into question. If other providers are offering to perform the same service — creating music — without the cost that you have charged, in terms of a life-plus-70-years-monopoly, then we, as the legislators, are going to renegotiate the terms of that agreement.”

“We won’t be negotiating new terms with you, of course. No, we’ll be negotiating new terms with our new suppliers and just terminate the contract with you, as is the norm in any business.”

Finnish Pirate Party now officially registered

The party was founded in May 2008. The delay of registering it as an entity allowed to nominate candidates can mostly be explained by activists having to go through the trouble of collecting 5,000 manually signed singatures on paper cards before being able to apply for recognition as this type of organization.

Also: Piraattipuolue’s press release in Finnish, HS’ original news item in Finnish, Ministry of Justice’s news bulletin, the Finnish National Broadcasting Company mentions this briefly in English, Wikipedia. The Party now has a press release in English.

“…oikeusministeri Tuija Brax (vihr) myöntää, että “kansalaistoiminnan perustuslakia”, yhdistyslakia, on pakko muuttaa nuorten yhteiskunnallisen aktiivisuuden nostamiseksi. […] Piraattipuolueen puheenjohtajan Pasi Palmulehdon mielestä netin ja myös sähköisen äänestämisen salliminen yhdistysten vuosikokouksissa olisi pitänyt toteuttaa jo vuosikymmen sitten.”
