File-sharing is an official religion in Sweden

January 8, 2012 · 1 comment

The Missionary Church of Kopimism has become an official religion in Sweden after a year-long fight with authorities. The church encourages and supports file-sharing as their main dogma. The sacred symbols of the church are CTRL+C and CTRL+V – shortcuts to copying and pasting information on the keyboard.

File-sharing is now an official religion in Sweden

The followers of the church believe that information is holy and that sharing (copying) is a sacrament. The church’s founder Isak Gerson, a 19-year-old philosophy student and a strong file-sharing believer, hopes that the official status of Kopimism as a religion will remove the legal stigma that surrounds file-sharing and that their beliefs will be considered in future lawmaking. Gerson encourages everyone with an Internet connection to keep on sharing.

The Missionary Church of Kopimism counts 3,000 members and it is expected that many more members will join now that the religion is official. You can join here, free of charge.
