The Pirate Party’s prospects in Germany

What are the prospects for the German Pirate Party? Pretty good actually, as I argue in a post on the PPUK blog:

There’s a general election in Germany in September, and the German Pirate Party, Piratenpartei, looks set for success.

Many Germans today, particularly younger ones, use the Internet as an integral part of their daily life, whereas many other Germans, particularly older ones and politicians, see the net as something alien which needs to be controlled.

In fact there’s only one choice that German digital natives can make, that will send an unambiguous signal to the political establishment: hands off our Internet, hands off our freedom, hands off our rights.

That choice is Piratenpartei.
