Pirate Party Has To Drop ‘Pirate’ From Its Name

Now what are these guys going to call themselves? We should all get together and help them come up with a new name. big grin

The Russian Government has concluded with disappointment for the Pirates. In an announcement yesterday that finally brings an end to a number of appeals, the Ministry of Justice declared that since piracy آ– sea piracy آ– is a crime under Russian law, no political party may have that word as part of its name. As a result the Pirate Party can never become officially recognized unless it calls itself something else.
