Do you remember the country of most famous P2P file sharing website which has indexed millions of torrents? Do you remember the country which was once safe heaven for file sharers? Later, weather changed and that land became fierce for file sharers. New legislation made it dangerous to share files on P2P networks. I am talking about Sweden. But still there in Sweden, they follow the law and just not the MAFIAA(?). They still think about their people. Kopimisim [File Sharing] is recognized as a new religion in Sweden. I am doubted but they claim that recognizing Kopimisim as religion will help file sharing. Time will tell. I do not remember who said it and I also do not remember the exact saying but said well: Mas has to create GOD to overcome his fears. Below is a press release from Church of Kopimisim.
Press release from the Church of Kopimism
The Church of Kopimism is recognized by the state of Sweden
Just before Christmas, the Swedish governmental agency Kammarkollegiet registered the Church of Kopimism as a religious organisation. This means that Sweden is the first country to recognize kopimism as a religion.
The Church of Kopimism have tried to become registered as a religious organisation by Kammarkollegiet for more than a year.
- Since Kammarkollegiet has been strict with formalities, we had to apply three times, a happy Gustav Nipe – board chairman for the organisation – says. He continues, I think it might have something to do with the governmental organisations abiding by a very copyright friendly attitude, with a twisted view on copying.
For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament. Information holds a value, in itself and in what it contains, and the value multiplies through copying. Therefore, copying is central for the organisation and its members.
Being recognized by the state of Sweden is a large step for all of kopimi. Hopefully, this is one step towards the day when we can live out our faith without fear of persecution, says Isak Gerson, spiritual leader of the Church of Kopimism.
The Church of Kopimism is a religious organisation with roots from 2010. The organisation formalizes a community that’s been well spread for a long time already. The community of kopimi requires no formal membership. You just have to feel a calling to worship what is the holiest of the holiest, information and copy. To do this, we organize kopyactings – religious services – where the kopimists share information with eachother through copying and remix.
Copy and seed.
