Final Polls Confirms Pirate Win

The reason file-sharing has found a following among the established parties is because the polls indicate the new Pirate Party will be joining them in the European Parliament.

The Pirate Party supports decriminalizing file-sharing and copyright reform. The final two polls, published Friday morning give the party 6.1 percent or 8.2 percent of the vote, enough for one seat in the parliament, and possibly two.

They also indicate slight drops for the two largest parties, the Social Democrats and the conservative Moderates, with small increases for the Liberals and Greens. The poll also confirms previous surveys that indicate the very EU-sceptic June List will not be returned.
