New Religion For File-Sharers

Self-confessed pirates hope to gain official recognition of their own religion. A group of people, holding Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V as sacred symbols, have founded the Missionary Church of Kopimism and believe that along with the official acceptance will come harmony, even with the police.


Among Ten Commandments there’s ‘Thou shall not steal’, which is mostly known within Christian circles. However, its message is quite universal, meaning that stealing is taking another’s property and thus depriving him of it. This definition usually makes people frown upon stealing, but it seems like some have a wider definition for it. The congregation at The Missionary Church of Kopimism truly believes that file-sharing and copying should be welcomed by religion. A group of people now hopes that their religion will be soon officially accepted by the government.

The new church was founded by Isaac Gerson, a 19-year-old philosophy student. His church believes that copying is the most beautiful thing, saying that copying your information is a token of appreciation, because it is a confirmation that others think you’ve done something good. Last year the church applied to the government to be accepted as an official religion, but the application in question was denied last month. The authorities argued that although the church is indeed a community, the meetings of the church didn’t constitute “worship”. However, the religion founders were not going to give up and have asked for a meeting in order to find out what is required for gaining official acceptance.

The church explained that communication is sacred and therefore needs to be respected. Meanwhile, the new religion calls it a direct sin to monitor and eavesdrop on people. In fact, the church has outlined its own set of axioms, main part of which relates to free access to knowledge and data sharing. In addition, the new religion is also acutely against DRM and similar means of protecting or hiding code.

Joining the church that holds Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V as sacred is quite easy – you just have to agree that information should be free while everything should be copied according to the church’s axioms. The potential followers are welcome to fill in the online form on the church’s website.

N3K avatarI'm not attacking et as the artical is from TorrentFreak...
just as an EXAMPLE.....
should i be free to use this however i want without approval?? Maybe even add my own name to it too!
Extratorrent.N3K.com hmmm has a nice ring to it (:
Or maybe make a copy of the entire site - why not, it's only data...
File/data/info sharing should be kept behind closed doors, besides- if it became accepted, who's actually going to bother rippig/encoding/uploading..

Brynn217 avatarI believe its a ploy... If they get religious status, then file sharing by those people and wire taps and stuff would all be covered by the first amendment under Freedom of Religion... Its a cover your a$$ kinda Church...lol... (I just want them to share what they are smoking)

Infectious avatarHey I guess if filesharing was part of your religious beliefs then it would make it harder for these copyright groups to f*ck with you,these dudes might be on to something lol.

Armando_G avatardo we live in La La Land,or we are adults and actually live in reality?

Religion is a touchy subject.. If they did actually manage to get this thru the process of legal recognition, then you never know.. the current 'popular' religions get away with much worse in the pursuit of their beliefs and the name of their gods.
