    Personally, OI object te the term ‘Poirate’. It makes me sound like them kiddies what steal music in the in-ter-nets. The digital age calls fer a re-evaluation of prop-er-ty roights to reflect the new reality brought about by new tech-no-lo-gy. The oidea that cargo belongs to anyone is out-da-ted; cargo wants to be free, and Oi’m the man to bring it freedom. The in-ter-nation-al trade system we have today is a lingering vestige of a n 18th century system, gradually expanded by many years of grasping expansion of roight by “Big Cargo” and ignores the spectacular development over recent decades in small, fast boats and big guns. We call for a re-balancing of roights in the direction of the average guy on the street. Or on the water. No-bo-dy needs to get hurt. Free Cargo! D’arr!
