Filesharing Recognized As A Religion

(Rock News Desk) Filesharing has been recognized as a religion by the government of Sweden as the followers of 'Kopimism' say copy and paste commands should be seen as sacred symbols.

The church officially became part of Swedish culture last month after its third attempt. But while its supporters say it's a major change in the way filesharing is viewed, others insist it won't change the illegal status of stealing copyrighted material.

Isak Gerson, 19, who formed the church, tells the BBC: "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." more on this story
