The UK and US Pirate Parties have submitted a letter to the coordinators of the Operation Payback, calling to cease the series of DDoS attacks against various anti-piracy outfits over the last tree months. The digital aggression of the famous anti-copyright Anonymous Operation Payback movement took a kind of a more considered approach recently.
Operation Payback seems to move away from bringing down numerous websites and adopt a totally new strategy in order to regain the attention. Now the committee of the movement prepared a list of demands for the governments all over the world, trying to get involved in political discussion. The representatives of the Operation Payback argue that copyright laws throughout the globe need to be changed, and call to stop anti-piracy lawsuits and censorship. They understand that nobody would listen to them if they were asking to make piracy legal, but they hope to sound more reasonable when calling for copyright lifespan to be reduced to “fair” lengths.
You might have already noticed that this new direction of the movement has lots in common with that chosen by the UK and US Pirate Parties. Now the Parties seem to join the voices of the Operation Payback in a plea for peace, calling them to immediately stop the DDoS attacks and switch to some legal method of expressing their discontent with the copyright industry. The letter also warns that the movement with such aggression and hostility runs the risk of harming themselves. Indeed, instead of calling for copyright reform, they can find themselves accused of defending the criminals.
In conclusion, the Pirate Party calls Operation Payback to help those who really care about the users’ freedoms, rights and liberty by opting for a more moderate and legal way of expressing their feelings.
However, nobody knows whether the Operation Payback movement will respond positively to the call. Apart from the anarchic structure of the movement, today’s signs can be treated as favorable for negotiations and further peace. Most likely, the Operation Payback will adhere to the Pirate Party’s call and stop their activities right away. However, they still didn’t proceed with the release of official announcement and full statement of the chosen strategy.

|Bear with me for a minute..|
I've never "registered" to a torrent site for fear of my personal information getting subpoenaed to the courts. This article has changed my attitude. If "pirates" are at full-on war with the anti-piracy lobby, then this is friggin awesome!
This news article is absolutely epic! Thank you OP! :hugs! Let me throw out an idea..
In a generation where Hollywood's talent, creativity and ORIGINALITY have almost completely dried up, go back and re-read this article, then do some more research on the whole anti-piracy issue..
IT'S THE PERFECT FOUNDATION FOR A MOVIE!!
