The Pirate Party in Germany is looking to build off electoral victories last month and solidify itself as a legitimate political party in Germany. Running primarily on a platform of internet privacy and copyright reform, the Pirate Party has made big gains with young voters who care about protecting file-sharing and a free and open internet.

Picking up four seats in regional parliament elections last month, the Pirate Party is now Germany’s third most popular party. So while legislators in the United States to keep pushing legislation like SOPA, PIPA, and CISPA to clamp down on the Internet – it might not be long before we get our own Pirate Party stateside.
