i've read the regulations for the permanent assembly at
the argumentations of mr lohmann and in particular the legal FAQ on
and find the reasoning very professional and convincing.

in particular the data protection issue you mentioned has been fixed
by introducing a court-of-arbitration appeal feature which is so 
neat that i just proposed it to be added to the italian perm 
assembly, too.

i doubt the courts will disallow this approach from moving forward.
i'm impressed by the job their doing up there and i'm particularely
proud of the media attention they got:


i wished the german party was doing this kind of media headlines all the time. 


in the meantime the brand squatters made it onto the election ballot
and scrapped >2000 votes off the "pirate" brand


too bad they are rather center-right, pro copyright and have
multi-level delegational statutes with privileges for the founding
members and an almost unreplaceable leader position. quite elaborate
and undemocratic for a two digit membership party.

... yet they call themselves pirates.

at least we were able to legally keep them from using the signet
and our name, "partito pirata."

damn, i hate we didn't make it to collect signatures!
