What I hope to happen is for people's consciousness to be raised.
Apple gets away with despicable behaviour because its core
constituency cares about fashion and coolness more than freedom.  I
just want Apple customers to realize the harm their choice to send
money to Apple is causing.

I am a member of the Pirate Party of Canada, a single-issue party
whose goal is copyright reform.  Do I really think we'll ever see a
Pirate sitting in the House of Commons?  Of course not.  Will the
Pirate Party get people thinking?  I hope so.
