Kim Dotcom has announced his new political party will be called the "Internet Party".

The internet entrepreneur, who is still battling extradition to the United States on copyright charges, unveiled the party's logo on Twitter this morning.

The logo's colours appear deliberately neutral from a traditional "left/right" perspective, comprising white text set against a purple background.

Information technology industry leaders were yesterday keeping their distance.

Xero founder Rod Drury said he had no comment on whether the party would be good or bad for the technology industry.

Institute for Information Technology Professionals chief executive Paul Matthews said the institute would also "prefer to stay out of this one".

Where do you stand on political coat-tail riding?

If it gets marginalised voices into Parliament, I'm for it.

I'm against it - if you don't get the votes, you shouldn't be there.

It's just part of the political game.
