A "church" whose central tenet revolves around the right to file-share has been formally recognised by the Swedish government. The Church of Kopimism claims that "kopyacting" - sharing information through copying - is akin to a religious service. The "spiritual leader" of the church said recognition was a "large step". But others were less enthusiastic and said the church would do little to halt the global crackdown on piracy.

The church, which holds CTRL+C and CTRL+V (shortcuts for copy and paste) as sacred symbols, does not directly promote illegal file sharing, focusing instead on the open distribution of knowledge to all. It was founded by 19-year-old philosopher student and leader Isak Gerson. He hopes that file-sharing will now be given religious protection.

yeah.. read that one.. interesting. It can be used as another way to promote the human right of sharing knowledge :smile: .The religious protection is that whatever happens in the church is confidential and cannot be used as proof in courts. Don't really understand how it is practically applied
