New Rising Media: "Swedish authorities has confirmed it's recognition of a 3,000 strong organisation of file sharers, called Church of Kopimism as a religion.
To help with the name translation, "Kopimi" pretty much means what it sounds like: "copy me." The organisation shares beliefs in the sharing and copying of data, as they see them to be a sacred act. Alongside this, monitoring and eavesdropping is seen as wrong. It's taken them a few attempts (their last declined application for official church status was in July of 2011); but Kopimism has finally been granted official recognition as a religion."
