Editorial policy

Our aim is to provide broad coverage of the main Piracy news so that our readers are kept up to date with the latest facts, figures and news. This means we cover all sorts of piracy news, from politics and economic developments to anti piracy equipment and armed guards as well as the latests incidents of maritime piracy.

We aim to tell the big news stories and report on important piracy related topics our readers need to know so they are aware of major events which may affect their lives.

Our news copy is based on our own years of experience, media coverage, press releases and Piracy newspaper articles and we try to credit and link to our sources as much as possible.

We see our job not only to inform but to explain current events in Piracy activities, so we try to include background where relevant.

Our photographs come from Unsplashed, from Wikimedia Commons, Google Earth and other rights-free sources. We always credit photographs which require credits . If you feel we have wrongly used or attributed your work, please contact the editor via contact@piracy.news.
