back here with r t here's a look at the top stories the converse last fall leader it takes to the international t.v. stage for the first time in six years an exclusive interview show by a persecutor whistleblower julian assange right here on our t.v. . probably cation by rebels against the syrian army only brings more violence and undermines the true says the opposition inside the country sending signals it's ready to negotiate. and one slight problem living sponsors come under fire as campaigners call into question their credibility saying the game's out been turned
12:31 am
into a money making machine with advertising the top priority. voting on a controversial online anti-car feeding bill is due the summer aimed at fighting internet piracy in today's r.t. interview some garden speaks to recall singer founder of the swedish pirate party he says internet freedom isn't something government should take lightly. internet freedom is a subject very much in the headlines these days and synonymous with internet freedom increasingly is the word play writ. it started with piracy and the idea that information on the internet could bring copied and passed along sometimes without copyright but the issues involved with the reaction to this and governments trying to pass legislation to try and restrict access to the internet to do with piracy have caused a lot of controversy and pirate parties have sprung up to try and promote the
12:32 am
rights of internet freedom we are lucky enough to have with us the founder of the original pirate party here in sweden rick fox finger thank you for joining us thank you for having me on the show appreciate it ok just recently we've been conveniently provided with three examples with a significant defeat it seems for the pirate movement a success and a future battle our start with bad news the defeat another name including pirate pirate bay here in sweden large fines prison sentences how do you feel about that result i think it's absolutely horrible i think there was an excellent example of how the establishment. takes its own privileges and then the status quo of the incumbent industries ahead of laws government cares for itself first and then for citizens if you look at previous new political movements i mean
12:33 am
you had the liberal movement which came under twenty years ago you had the the social democrat the labor movement which came about eighty years ago you had the green movement coming about forty years ago all of them challenged the establishment and the status quo to the point where the early activists frankly went to jail and in history we regard those that went to jail as heroes so. it's a shame but perhaps being cynical that's the way it goes and these people will be heroes in the history books there is another side there are people who say look how much material went through that site and how much of it should have had some rights money going to the people who made it and they didn't get to them i think that's an interesting argument. what you're essentially asking me is interpretation of the law and i didn't become a lawyer but
12:34 am
a politician because i think the law is wrong and i want to change it so. looking at the income for musicians since the advent of napster in the file sharing era we find the average income for musicians have risen one hundred fourteen percent in the past ten years the average income per musician has risen sixty six percent and twenty eight more percent get some sort of that share war is true is that the parasitic middlemen who are if i'm going to be a bit derogatory here help who are in the plastic piece of plastic construction industry. have seen their record sales just go through the floor and that's excellent for artists since these are a link in the value chain the used to take ninety five percent of the cut and artists have found out how to circumvent them so much more monitors to the artists however this particular link sits on all the lobbying power and most of the
12:35 am
legislation power so these parasitic middlemen are trying to legislate their place in the market which from an entrepreneurial perspective is just a market stick and outrageous from from a solidary into perspective it's outrageous because it's corporate corporate activist. repression so. if you're looking or. if you caring for artists then you certainly should not look at the record industry which have done their at most since their inception to rob artists of the money i see i see that your target here and i see the way it's an it's of well framed argument and i think it has an obviously gained a lot of traction put the person sitting in their computer who downloads a film for example that they know they're not paying for. this notion with none whatsoever i mean the issue here is if you're running
12:36 am
a business then it's your responsibility to find a business model within the current constraints of society that allows you to make money you don't get to dismantle civil liberties even if you can't make money or perhaps even especially if you can't make money. a person corporations profitability does not factor into degree of freedom of speach. so yes the pirate might have done something illegal i don't think they did but then again i'm not a lawyer in any case absolutely adamant that what they did was beneficial to society and to artistry and so it should not be illegal under any circumstance well i think you're not alone in that opinion because we'll go on now to the victory has been a victory for the pirate movement and not just the party movement in america was so poor and people have really matter again i think unexpected amount of
12:37 am
resistance do you think this is perhaps a slap in the face to media companies that perhaps felt they could steamroll of the process i think it's tremendously important so i mean you have two hundred fifty million europeans sharing culture in violation of this old copyright distribution monopoly to them it's arrogant beyond description a corporate structure takes the right to determine what they can say to other citizens we have a generation that's grown up learning that they can say whatever to whomever on the planet and just let the ideas battle it out for themselves we have this perfect enlightenment era deals where it's really a battle of ideas doesn't matter who says them all of a sudden corporations want to take that away and. it's not enough to say that the
12:38 am
junk younger generation perceive that perceives this as incredibly offensive. so so people i think that was the first case where the general population really woke up through realizing that while we have been saying all along isn't wolf crying we are actually warning for some for a very real danger out there and what we saw was nearly a year is literally of people rising up and demanding their rights and i think there was a beautiful thing and these trade representatives used to working in the shade working in the dark just agreeing in backroom deals kind of their freedom of speech which we should have just taken they were just taken by surprise and again you had this key element that politicians started to fear for their jobs if that hadn't happened so people would already have passed but politicians sort of
12:39 am
saw the floor crumble beneath their feet because they started to realize that same same as here in europe two hundred fifty million europeans sharing culture that's not a problem with a couple of teenagers that's half the voting population and if you want to keep your job you can't call and criminal public interests a nice point to move on to your coming battle or perhaps it's too late with the anti counterfeiting trade agreement actor was recently signed by the e.u. member states it's been watered down a lot since the beginning is it really so dangerous people have woken up these rallies are huge i mean if you look at poland there are these rallies that have already been are absolutely astounding and people are frankly demanding their rights back to means censorship of the net and that is not acceptable not to the generation growing up not of the people who understand what the net is about and
12:40 am
that it's. the greatest equalizer of mankind has ever invented and that's not something we are ready to give up frankly we are discovering things that just shouldn't be the near be european commission one down the other side the other day and said that this is no big deal everybody will be free to keep us to sharing governmentally approved things and that's not what they should be saying they should say that you still have freedom of speech not freedom of speech for what we approve of look into your crystal ball your digital crystal ball for us and look towards the future ten twenty maybe even fifty years in the future do you see an internet that is free and open and equal or do you see dark clouds ahead i think we're at a crossroads right now. this technology can be used to create such a dis topik big brother society that if you'd written a book about it in the fifties or even the eighty's it would have been discarded as
12:41 am
plain unrealistic i mean you have you have police troll johnson are they were planted on suspect computers even non-suspect computers to see for the police to see what they are doing these trojans have access to the microphones and cameras of the computers so that. we are we are now at this stage this dystopic scene of the one nine hundred fifty s. where there were cameras in people's homes the only thing missing from the scenario was that we bought them ourselves there was the one thing where there wasn't foreseen on the other hand you can also use this technology to create a society where power holders are more accountable than ever to the voting citizenry you have you can create a society where ideas get to battle it out without interference from who said what and what's their background you can create a society where culture can florists like never before and ideas can flourish like
12:42 am
never before and that battle stands right now and the question is who controls the internet. i wanted to be the citizens there are people who wanted to be a previous set of industries and if they won if they win we get a big brother society if the citizens when we get a democracy richer than any before. thank you very much thank you. download the official ante up location on the phone on called touch from the i choose apps to. watch on t.v. life on the go. if video on demand oxys minefield

12:47 am
found out xander persia organ in the right circle with a well timed parents who is short he's someone the goal of the campaign did not put the visitors on the pressure in the second launching attacks one after another not giving the visitors a chance to catch their breath but ryan assuming managed to withstand and responded with counterattacks. the see saw game continued in the final frame with chances for both sides while the hosts failed to level matter as using any of their eight power plays and the reason for that was our scotty rama who was brilliant it when that by . the balloon why it's all play the hoax for most of the game but deny was forward started to lose confidence as it seemed like nothing would go past the twenty five year old netminder that night one of the best individual efforts came from me hi i nice him in the dying seconds of the game but the finish made in the great say nine thirty one shots for his third play of shut out. we were lucky to open the scoring
12:48 am
with a so we could change our game plan according to the scoreline we had to withstand a lot so now most of times and rommel made a lot of decency will go off well actually play a game with a minimal my chances and a very few mistakes we made well and we lost with a narrow win a long guard put their noses in front to one in the going up for an old with game four she had healed for thursday here in moscow and time out of archie. no football but i mean it grabbed the dramatic late goal to be two one and the first leg of their champions league semifinal and i mean the win it in the ninetieth minute but i will travel to madrid next week for the second leg but no the still a lot to do. because we were just we can be very proud of this game because we deservedly beat real madrid for this is only the first leg and the result of some
12:49 am
