it's technology innovation all the developments from around russia we've got the future covered. which is very welcome aarti live here in moscow top stories now the launch of june a surge is very own interview show here on r.t. causes controversy with the premiere episode lauded for the choice of guest the first person the wiki leaks founder talked to was as leader hassan nasrallah is first interview with an international channel in six years. of smiling u.s. soldiers posing next to body parts of. bombers emerge in the latest in a series of scandals involving american troops pictures of feeling concerns over the leadership and discipline of u.s. forces in afghanistan. and russia accuses all of the opposition in syria of
12:31 pm
provoking violence and undermining the un brokered cease fire it claims with reports of the free syrian army is using refugee camps in turkey as safe havens to . regime troops. welcome back with more news stories another update in fifteen minutes from now in the meantime as we've been reporting we can global anti piracy agreement known as actor may soon be dead in the water and a pirate parties fighting against the copyright treaty and setting sail for the european parliament elections in twenty fourteen well next artie's tom barton speaks to rick he's the founder of the swedish pirate party. 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
12:32 pm
that information on the internet could be 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 rights of internet freedom we are lucky enough to have with us the founder of the original pirate party here in sweden. 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 movements a success and a future battle our 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
12:33 pm
think there was an excellent example of how the establishment. takes its own privileges and 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 of the status quo to the point where the 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
12:34 pm
how much material went through that site and how much of it should have some rights money going to the people who made it and they didn't get to them i think that's an interesting argument no what you're essentially asking 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 out 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 its share war is true is that the parasitic middlemen who are if i'm going to be a bit derogatory here who are in the. last piece of plastic construction industry. have seen their record sales just go through the floor and
12:35 pm
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 legislation power these parasitic middlemen legislate their place in the market which from an entrepreneurial perspective is just a market. and outrageous from from a solidary into perspective it's outrageous because it's corporate corporate activist. 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 there at the 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
12:36 pm
and i think it has an obviously gained a lot of traction but the person sitting in their computer who downloads a film for example that they know they're not paying for and there's no issue with that 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 liberty is 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
12:37 pm
society 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 the party movement in america was sober and people have really matter again i think unexpected amount of resistance do you think this is perhaps a slap in the face to media companies that perhaps felt that they could steamroller the process i think it's tremendously important i mean you have two hundred fifty million you opinions 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
12:38 pm
planet and just let the ideas battle it out for themselves we have this perfect enlightenment 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 jong 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 to realizing that what 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 and 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
12:39 pm
we should have just taken they were just taken by surprise and again you have the key element that politicians started to fear for their jobs if that hadn't happened so people would already have problems but politicians sort of sort of thought 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 the voting population and if you want to keep your job you can't call them criminal public interests or 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 member states it's been watered down a lot since the beginning is it really so dangerous people have woken up these
12:40 pm
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 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 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 that the euro be european commission said that this is no big deal everybody will be free to keep the sharing of governmental 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
12:41 pm
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 distance topik big brother society that if you'd written a book about it in the fifty's or even the eighty's it would have been discarded as plain and realistic i mean you have you have police troll jance now that are 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 on 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 was a 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
12:42 pm
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 flourish like never before and ideas come from. it's like never before that by the stones right no and the question is who controls the internet. i want to be the citizens there are people who want to be a previous set of industries and if they want if they when we get a big brother society if the citizens when we get a democracy richard have any before. thank you very much thank you.
