The Estonian Pirate Party (Estonian: Eesti Piraadipartei) is a support group to form a political party in Estonia. Based on the model of the Swedish Pirate Party, it supports intellectual property reform, freedom of speech and respect for privacy.[1] The party was founded on 26 June 2009 in Tartu,[2][3] and is a member of Pirate Parties International.[4]

The party was not active in public after its formation at the end of 2009, only posting some news on its Twitter feed and a Facebook page displaying some information, the web site was lost in the Estonian Internet domain reform in 2011. As of 18 March 2012 the Estonian Pirate Party has elected a new board and has restored the Pirate party web page.
