Rick Falkvinge

Rick Falkvinge

Rick Falkvinge is the founder and leader of the Swedish Pirate Party, as well as the founder of the international politicized pirate movement. His leadership took the Pirate Party from nothing into the top ten parties in the last Swedish election, without a dime in the campaign chest; Rick's personal candidacy came in at rank #15 out of over 5,000 candidates for the 349 parliamentary seats. While he didn't win a seat due to threshold rules, his fight for civil liberties continues, focusing on the current copyright aggression that threatens our rights to privacy, postal secret, whistleblower protection and more.
