Pirate Party of Kazakhstan supports the following principles.

The freedom to redistribute and access to information

Free-for-profit information sharing in any way in any medium, in any medium. The persecution of its members is unacceptable. Laws of Copyright and other laws should not be a pretext for punishing non-commercial participants in the exchange of information, limiting the right of the author to choose how to work a publisher or Censorship.

The reform of copyright in accordance with the interests of authors and society, rather than publishers

The Copyright System should encourage and reward writers, respecting and observing the rights of others. Kazakhstan's legislation should respect internationally recognized free licenses such as licenses Creative Commons, GNU GPL/GFDL, BSD License and others, and contribute to their performance in full.

Reform the patent system

Patents should be encouraging and rewarding inventors, not an artificial impediment of free competition. In industries where this is impossible, patents should be abolished.

The orientation of Government to free and open technology

Citizens have the right to communicate with the state, using the Open Standards, Network Protocols, open formats and files using completely Free software programs. All the results of intellectual activity of the authorities, including laws, regulations and standards should have the status of public domain and be available for free inspection and copying.


The authorities shall require only that the citizen information they need to perform their duties. Claims must be substantiated and may be appealed in court. Gathering information about the citizen is permissible only by court order and only to persons reasonably suspected of committing crimes.
