It would be a good idea to exchange our experience with Pirate Party in our country. What I mean is that what have you done and what are you planing in future, and what is doing Anti-pirate Alliance in your country?
And what's going on in others Pirate Party ???
I might write an article about just that topic for the next issue of our party newspaper.
As quick overview, those things come to my mind:
* it's relatively easy to gather some initial media attention (at least in techie media, at least shortly before elections)
* you'll get a huge influx of people after the initial coverage
* only very few people are willing to actually do something [long term]
** or i'm a bad manager and lost all due to a lack of motivation, integration, or whatever
* arrange meetings, fix teh dates for the next half year in advance and just visit them. this is the best way to keep things alive, even if there are few things to be done or few actually done
* work on stuff. there are a million things that need to be done. unforunately pretty few people do it. so you will have to. :/
the anti piracy alliance in austria is spreading intellectual-property-foo (propaganda) and sueing people - business as usual.
additionally we have the peculiar situation in austria that the ifpi was allowed to supply "education material" to austrian schools.
In Poland police is confiscating computers and Anti-pirate Alliance sue their owners for illegal programs and music, and videos files.
We try to help those peoples with law advice, therefore we cooperate with law office and for this we created forum for those peoples where they can ask for free advice.
We plan to move with education campaign, and chose on autumn party goverment. In January our "self calling" Very Happy chairman Blazej Kaczorowski will present "Open source software in education and copyrights" at meeting with Educatin Guardianship.
We're still thinking about setting some sort of law-advice or law help, but even if it would be clearly seperated from any political party. More piratebureau than pirateparty.
Although the situation isn't that bad in Austria. Usually people are "just" fined to ~3000,- Euros. :/
As i said: in terms of copyright we're planning to set up a NGO to educate the public. That intellectual-property-foo must be stopped before entertainment, patent and software cartels turn our free markets into a soviet union-esque centrally-planned economy.
