The article analyzes the possible consequences of a mass influx of copyright pirates into the privacy domain. It addresses the effects of the uptake of strong privacy technologies by pirates on copyright enforcement, on the free speech and on the privacy technology domains. It then analyzes the norms and values reflected in the specific design choices taken by the developers of the Piratebrowser.
