Interview with the leader of the Pirate Party in Sweden

Jane Hamsher and I got a chance to meet and interview Rickard Falkvinge, the head of the Swedish Pirate Party. The party is devoted to patent and copyright reform (they’re not big fans of either), and they also focus on eavesdropping laws (that they don’t like either). The party is loosely affiliated with the file-sharing Web site “The Pirate Bay,” and just recently won a seat in the European parliament.
