Austrian Pirates Separate from Communists

Austria now has its very own pirate party. Initially the communist party KPÖ presented itself as the national Pirate Party, but it appeared that not all pirates wanted to be associated with the communist ideals.

The Austrian Pirate Party is planning to participate in Austria’s national elections this October and has three main points:

1. Copyright reform: People should be free to make private copies, prohibition of DRM, reduction of copyright protection to 5 years after publication
2. Privacy protection: No European Union powered data storage
3. Patent reform: Getting rid of trivial Software patents

They are currently collaborating with other Pirate Parties in France, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Germany and the USA.
