Some pirates in Sweden turn file-sharing into a religion!!!

A group of self-confessed radical pirates are pinning their hopes on gaining official recognition of their own unique belief system. The founders of the Missionary Church of Kopimism – who hold CTRL+C and CTRL+V as sacred symbols – hope that along with this acceptance will come harmony, not just with each other, but also with the police.

‘Thou shall not steal’ is one of the most well-known of the Ten Commandments. Although most familiar to those in Christian circles, its message is universal and cuts across most religious boundaries. But while stealing – taking another’s property and therefore depriving him of it – is widely frowned upon, some have a wider definition for the word.

Make no mistake, if the entertainment industries were God passing their sacred rulings to Moses, there would have almost certainly been one more – Thou Shalt Not Copy. But for the followers of a brand new religion in Sweden, this commandment would be against everything they believe in. More...

Don't miss:
  1. Teen fined $2900 for downloading a movie illegally ...
  2. Copying is not theft!!! 
  3. French fight back Hadopi anti-piracy law...
  4. Devotees at Indian temple smoke ... cannabis???
  5. In India they have built a temple ... for the dog!!!
  6. In Malaysia there's a Temple of Lucky Pigs!!!
