Speaking of GNU/Linux, this is another great way in which a Pirate  
sponsored UBI strategy can remain clearly within Pirate ideology. The  
cost that government organizations could save on licensing by  
switching to a GNU GPL licensed distro, if they haven't already, could  
help fund a UBI scheme.

I've also read about organizations and institutions reducing costs by  
using bittorrent.

Couldn't Pirate make a contribution by proposing that these cost  
cutting strategies be included and applied toward any UBI plan that is  
endorsed by Pirates? There's nothing wrong with killing two or more  
birds with one stone.

Quoting Richard Stallman <rms at gnu.org>:
