Amelia Andersdotter up close

Amelia Andersdotter is one of the most remarkable young politicians in Europe. A member of the Swedish Pirate Party,Andersdotter was recently elected to the European Assembly. Provided that Ireland ratifies the Lisbon Treaty, Andersdotter - who is currently still a student at Lund University in Sweden - will become the youngest member of the assembly and a critical voice in reforming European intellectual property law.

Yesterday, both Andersdotter and I spoke about the Internet at the Incubate Festival in Tilburg, Holland. As we sat outside her hotel in a rather noisy downtown Tilburg, Andersdotter was gracious enough to talk to me about why exactly she joined the Pirate Party and how she hopes it will revolutionize the 21st century world of informational politics.....
