The Pirate Party of Greece (Greek: Κόμμα Πειρατών Ελλάδας) is a political party in Greece. Based on the model of the Swedish Pirate Party, it supports reform of copyright law, the abolition of patents, and respect for privacy.
The party was founded on 14 January 2012. It was officially recognised on 10 February 2012, and had 480 members on that date. The Pirate Party of Greece is a full member of Pirate Parties International.
Due to the extensive censorship that is practiced in the party by an undemocratic lobby , in january 2014, only 20-25 active members remain. A new pirate party is planned. The new pirate party focus both in pirate principles and in direct democracy, and hopes to represent all disapointed pirates that left.
