File-Sharing Religion Was Rejected By Swedish Authorities

File-Sharing Religion Was Rejected By Swedish Authorities

Everyone understands that file-sharing is widely practiced today, and people do share files religiously. However, even though file-sharing is a regular part of user’s lives, this doesn’t make file-sharing a religion, according to the Swedish authorities.

A few months ago an apparent movement appeared in Sweden to declare file-sharing as a religion. The movement became known worldwide as Kopimism and now has its own site. The online service describes their belief system, saying that they call for “all knowledge to all”. Besides, they claim that the search for knowledge, the circulation of knowledge, and the act of copying are sacred.

The website of kopimists explains that throughout history, different groups all over the world have been persecuted by oppressors, which made them since take refuge in religion and want a peaceful coexistence, which won’t involve any threats or harassment.

The new religion believes that communication is sacred and therefore needs to be respected. In addition, it is considered a direct sin to monitor and eavesdrop on people. In other words, the absolute secrecy appears to be holy in the church of kopimism. What is more important, in the individual pastoral care and confession with the kopimist priests, they should be protected under the country’s law by an absolute professional secrecy.

Although these beliefs sound convincing to some people, they apparently didn’t convince Swedish authorities. According to the media reports, Swedish officials rejected to allow file-sharing as a religion and ruled against a Swedish group’s effort to have online file-sharing recognized as an act of religious worship.

Swedish media reported that the country’s Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency rejected the attempt by the Pirate Party of Uppsala to have their beliefs regarding the data copying and sharing activities recognized as a religious faith called The Missionary Church of Kopimism. The name of the church comes from the “Kopimi”, which is pronounced as “copy me”. Their logo is located on the sites of users willing to have the contained data copied.

By the way, this wasn’t the first time Swedish authorities rejected quite an unusual request for recognition of a church. Back in 2010, the country’s authorities rejected a bid to have the Church of Orgasm be established as an official religion as well.
