Copyright and Patent Reform

Everyone is part of the digital economy

In a landmark ruling today the Court of Justice of the European Union found that the current 'Safe Harbor' agreement (which underpins the vast majority of the transfer of data from the EU to the US) is invalid. This ruling strikes an important blow for data protection for EU citizens.
Safe Harbor has long been used by large corporations to justify transferring data out of UK and EU datacentres, into US based locations. By using "Safe Harbor", companies agree to be bound by the same restrictions as they have in the US, despite not being explicitly required to do so by US law.

Field Report: Pirate Bloc - Tory Party Conference demo 4/10/2015

Over the last week, the Tory party had their conference in Manchester. On Sunday 4th October, 60,000 people took to the streets to protest, organised by the People's Assembly Against Austerity. We joined them as the Pirate Bloc, with some help from our friends over at the Manchester branch of Open Rights Group. We broadcast a lot of the march live on Periscope, and there are a number of videos saved on Bambuser, but we also have a few pictures to share with you.

The media has been publically shaming Martin Shkreli, a Big Pharma (Turing Pharmaceuticals.) CEO who hyped the HIV drug price by 5455% (from $13.50 to $750 per tablet) and is reported to have hyped a cystinura drug by almost 2000%. This is a perfect example of why Piracy, or sharing should not be considered a crime and why our clear policy on the NHS handling drug research is again shown to be a viable option to prevent drug prices from harming patients.

On Labour Leadership

After a long 3 months we finally have a new Labour shadow cabinet. This is good news for PPUK, as it means political discourse can start to focus back on the actual politics; it's harder than ever for a small party to have a voice when the hype surrounding one of the big parties is at fever pitch for so long!

Importantly, though, I think that Labour got the leadership result they needed in order to drive some real change into the party, and to drive change in UK politics as a whole; although the smear campaign is still in full swing, just having Jeremy Corbyn elected has already begun to force a shift in the conversation.
