The new Religion – Kopimism

6 January 2012

With 2012 only barely here, Intaforensics Ltd thought that we would start off our blogging year with a light-hearted story coming out of Sweden.

A “church” that’s central tenet is the right to file-share has been officially recognised by the Swedish Government.

The Church of Kopimism (pronounced Copy-ism) has claimed that sharing information through “kopyacting” sharing information through copying is akin to a religious service.

Others were more sceptical claiming the church would do little to halt the global crackdown on piracy.

The church has been founded by 19 year old philosophy student Isak Gerson and and holds the shortcuts CTRL C and CTRL V as sacred symbols. He now hopes that file-sharing will now be given religious protection!

Considering that Jedi is now a recognised religion (where are all the lightsabres) we don’t think that the “Church” will have much if any impact to halt the crackdown on piracy!

Happy new year everybody!
