Swedish Gaming Convention Gamex Bans Pirate Party
Posted on Monday, November 7 @ 17:12:44 PST by Josh_LaddinSo Sweden's got this big (for Sweden) gaming exhibition called Gamex. They've got the usual companies attending and showing their wares, but now they've also got a bit of controversy on their hands over the exclusion of Piratpartiet, otherwise known as the Pirate Party. If you don't know of them, they're a group started in Sweden that has since spawned international followings that seek to reform copyright and patent laws with a greater emphasis on privacy and government transparency.
Rick Falkvinge, the Party's founder, said “I find it absolutely hilarious that a gaming fair banned the Pirate Party on the official pretext that ‘our culture is harmful to gaming'."
