Serbian Pirate Manifest 1.0
There are common misconceptions among the public about the institution of pirates as well as the hackers. The Pirates are not those "urban entrepreneurs" selling disk copies in the streets for 150 dinars and using the money to buy daily doses of alcohol, new car seat covers or spoilers for their Golfs. The Pirates are not those tech-support guys who sell black market hardware equipment and ask how-to questions in the open forums in order to solve their "business" problems and end up selling the hardware to those even dumber than themselves. The Pirates are not the ones hacking someone else's wi-fi and then selling it to their neighbours.
The Pirates simply spend each day distributing materials and intelligently and interactively communicating with their surroundings. The exchange, playing and interactive communication are processes that shape the Pirates brain, not beer or Volkswagen.
Serbian Pirate Party is a wish for this country to be ready for new things brought on by the digital era and the limitless exchange of information.
