In this film for the Pirate Party called "Vad vet du om upphovsrätt", we see an idyllic suburbian street and a young girl selling lemonade and cookies at her stand. Thing is, she's also listening to the radio.

Suddenly a man in black enters, and promptly smashes her radio with a sledgehammer, before handing her a form from STIM (Svenska Tonsättares Internationella Musikbyrå), to apply for the rights to play copyrighted music at her "café". If you apply eagle-eyes to the paper, you'll see that it reads "servering", and I'd just like to point out that there's no such form on Stim. There's a Cafe one, but alas, selling lemonade in the backyard isn't a café. (I bet she doesn't even TAX her income! Jail the little girl!)

    Up until now I thought they are doing everything they can to repel non PP voters. Now I thing do are trying to keep off even their own voters.
    I wouldn't be surprise if the creative behind this film is theirs (I actually hope no real agency is behind that embarrassing film).
