from steve. santagati dot com. good to have you with us here on r t we are coming to you live from moscow where you had lines of the vilified leader of hezbollah takes to the international t.v. stage for the first time in six years it's all in an exclusive interview by the persecuted whistleblower julian assange himself. shoots down the israeli occupation and the arab revolution ongoing in syria. the land of which spring comes thousands of palestinians in israeli prisons go on a hunger strike as the latest high profile talks between the two strange nations goes down a truly tried and failed. london's two thousand and twelve olympic sponsors
6:31 am
come under fire as campaigners call into question their credibility by saying the games have been turned into a money making mission with advertising the one and only top priority. well voting on a controversial online anti counterfeiting bill is jew this summer it's aimed at fighting internet piracy in today's r.t. interview tom barton a speedster rick. founder of the swedish pirate party he says internet freedom isn't something governments should take likely that discussion is for. internet freedom is a subject very much in the headlines these days and synonymous with internet freedom increasingly is the word pirate. it started with piracy and the idea that information on the internet could be copied and passed along sometimes without
6:32 am
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 rights of internet freedom we are lucky enough to have with us the founder of the original pirate party here in sweden rick forefinger thank you for joining us well 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 start with bad news the defeat another a 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
6:33 am
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 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 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
6:34 am
how much material went through that sides 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 and i think that's an interesting argument. what you're essentially asking the years interpretation of the law and i didn't become a lawyer but 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 that 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 the share war is true is that the parasitic middlemen who are if i'm going to be. derogatory here who are in the. last piece of plastic construction industry. have seen their record sales just go through the floor and that's excellent for artists since
6:35 am
these are a link in the value chain used to take ninety five percent of the cut and artists have found out how to circumvent them so much more money to the artists however this particular link sits on all the lobbying power and most of the legislation 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 to perspective it's outrageous because it's corporate corporatist repression so. if you're looking at. if you're caring for artists then you certainly should not look at the record industry which have done that at most since their inception to rob artists of the money i see i see that your target here and i see that the way it's a it's
6:36 am
a well framed argument and i think it has an oh it's obviously gained a lot of traction but the person sitting at their computer downloads a film for example that they know they're not paying for it there's no issue with that none whatsoever i mean the issue here is if you're running 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 purse corporations profitability does not factor into degree of freedom of speech so. yes the pirate bay might have done something illegal i don't think they do but then again i'm not a lawyer in any case absolutely adamant that what they did was beneficial to
6:37 am
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 victory has been a victory for the pirate movement and not just a client movement in america was sober and people have really mattered i think unexpected amount of resistance do you think that this is perhaps a slap in the face to media companies that perhaps felt that 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 an ad against 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
6:38 am
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 junk younger generation perceive that perceives this as incredibly offensive. so. people i think that was the first case where the general population really woke up through realizing that well 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 merely humans 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 freedom of speech which
6:39 am
we should have just taken they were just taken by surprise and again you have this key element that politicians started to fear for their their jobs if that hadn't happened so people would already have passed but politicians sort of saw the floor crumble beneath their feet because they started to realize the 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 them criminal public interest or nice point to move on to your coming battle or perhaps it's too late with the anti counterfeiting trade agreement act was recently signed by the e.u. member states it's been watered down a lot since the beginning is it really so people have woken up these rallies are
6:40 am
huge i mean if you look at poland there the rallies that have already been are absolutely astounding and people are frankly demanding their rights back and means censorship of the net and that is not acceptable not of the generation growing up not of the people who understand what the net is about and that it's. the greatest equalizer that mankind has ever invented and that's not something we're ready to give up frankly we're discovering things that just shouldn't be that your meat european commission went on the other side the other day and said that this is no big deal everybody will be free to keep the sharing governmentally approved things and that's not what they should be saying they should say that you can you still have freedom of speech not freedom of speech for what we approve of look into your crystal ball of 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
6:41 am
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 distant topik big brother society that if you'd written a book about it in the fifty's or even the eighty's it had would have been discarded as plain unrealistic i mean you have you have police troll jones now that have planted on suspects computers even non-suspect computers to see for the police 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
6:42 am
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 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 the 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 richard and any before mr feldman thank you very much thank you.

6:47 am
a two one series late in the best of seven contests watching it was a constant thing but our path with seven minutes to go in the opening period i won guards from manchurian care found out there is rug in the right circle with a well timed parents who is short he is someone the goal of the campaign do not put the visitors on the grass in the second launching attacks one after another not giving the visitors a chance to catch their breath but rime assume an ins man managed to withstand and responded with a counter attacks. the see so game continued in the final frame with chances for both sides while the hosts failed to level matter as using any of their eight ball plays and the reason for that was our own birds carty rama who was brilliant between the pipes the balloon whites outplayed the hoax for most of the game but then i was for it started to lose confidence as it seemed like nothing would go past the twenty five year old netminder of that night one of the best individual
6:48 am
efforts came from me hi you are nice in the dying seconds of the game but to finish made in the other great say the nine thirty one shots book is a good play of shut out for march we were lucky to open the scoring with them so we could change your game plan according to the scoreline we had to withstand a lot so you know it was a touch and rommel made a lot of these things it will go off like a truly play a game with a minimum of chances and a very few mistakes we made one of them and we lost with a narrow win i'm guard put their noses in front two one in the going cup finals with game four she had healed for thursday here in moscow and same out of archie. but were by munich grabbed a dramatic late goal to beat reality grid two one in the first leg of their champions league semifinal mario gomez with the winner in the ninetieth minute to give a side the edge for the return leg in a period next week but despite having
6:49 am
a slim advantage by play they've still got it all to think. it was really just we can be very proud of this game because we deservedly beat real madrid this is only the first leg and the result is somewhat dangerous since we are just need to wonder when the second going to advance to the finals but this is good because we will see one hundred percent focused we seize their chance tonight and now we're off to madrid. but on wednesday night chelsea host defending champions barcelona in the other semi the blues have hit forms introverted imitate take over from andrea suppose his manager and beat tottenham five one in the f.a. cup semifinal at the weekend however they are the underdogs for their clash with garcia although that's a label frank plan part is happy with. were no illusions again as i said before about. i quite like it's very good going underdogs so why is it refreshing to tell you if you believe in yourself and i think we believe in ourselves so i think the last thing we want to do is take too much variance of this game we can talk
6:50 am
yourself into fear by going to barcelona all the time and we have to believe in ourselves and we have to respect the opposition we have to go and play our game and if we did our personal believe we have a very good chance we're going to go. as if we have to be our best because we are taking on the best but barcelona are looking to reach the final for the fourth time in seven season then sandwiched between this and the return leg is the el classico with three at the weekend which could decide the league its heikal passing midfielder says ivory gases describe it as the most important week of the season. they came they came here to learn to get better as a player as a person and also to experience weeks like what we are going to start tomorrow you know playing a still seem so in final of the champions league play against real madrid but if we win we are right. playing for the for the title and then against chelsea again you know it's the most important week of the season and that's where we came to
