Kopimism, Sweden's Pirate Religion, Begins to Plunder America

from U.S.News...
Quote:
The gospel of the church has begun to spread, with Kopimist branches in 18 countries.
Quote:
Followers of so-called "Kopimism" believe copying, sharing, and improving on knowledge, music, and other types of information is only human—the Romans remixed Greek mythology, after all, they say. In January, Kopimism—a play on the words "copy me"—was formally recognized by a Swedish government agency, raising its profile worldwide.

While many mock such movements, I would say that a lot of people who do not support copyright law are more committed to their ideals than some of the people who attend religious services on Sundays.

I also do not think that the exemption from copyright law 'plunders' any more than other religions' expemptions from taxes.

I would have expected them to 'borrow' google's droid as a symbol and annoint some of the opensource and wiki pundits as high priests.

I may just have to like them on facebook...

LOL - Glad to know I'm not the only one who did a double check on who the original poster was. Sounds just like him. I bet he tithes to them though.

I am waiting for the first schism so that I can agitate against the renegades and apostates.
Are we going to see martyres who stand up for their faith against the DMCA?

Me, too. I'm waiting for him to start 'preaching' on this thread, now.

Giggleton tithe? Ha, he doesn't pay for anything.

Wait, if Kopimism is a religion, should we relegate his posts about him wanting free entertainment to the politics and religion section?

This is not a religion. It is nothing more than attempt to justify ignoring copyright laws and taking what you want without paying for it.

I think that if we get into a discussion of the motivations behind various religions and schisms this discussion would get very ugly very fast.
