    Bibliographical note

    The journal 'Radical Philosophy' is made freely available to individual subscribers with a 40 year archive on their website at http://www.radicalphilosophy.com. This article is therefore available to read and download at http://www.radicalphilosophy.com/commentary/pirate-radical-philosophy-2. Author's note: This article was commissioned by, and has just been published in, one of the most highly respected journals of cultural and political theory. It promotes the adoption of an innovative new approach to the subject of internet piracy by focusing on its implications for the material practices and social relations of academic labour in the arts and humanities. It is based on an audio-visual lecture first delivered at Coventry University in September 2008 and which by June 2009 was the third most downloaded Teaching and Education video on Apple’s iTunesU – second was US President Barak Obama’s commencement address. Further indication of the interest in this research is provided by the invitations received to give talks on the subject at a number of internationally excellent institutions including the universities of Durham and Sussex; together with a keynote speech alongside the leader of the UK Pirate Party at the 2009 Where Forth Now? conference, TreeHouse Gallery, Regents Park, London, and a plenary talk to the 2010 Visual Culture Studies Conference, Westminster University.
