Submission + - Filesharing official religion in Sweden (falkvinge.net)

a_n_d_e_r_s writes: Kopimism has now officially become an sanctioned religion in Sweden. Rick Falkvinge, founder of the original Pirate Party, writes in hos blog that the religion was "founded by people with their roots in the youth wing Ung Pirat of the Swedish Pirate Party; people who believe that copying is not just right, but has a higher purpose in itself. Information is holy, and sharing and copying is a sacred act."
The kopimism message is that Internet is holy and that code is law, copying and sharing of information is a ethically right and that remixing is an holy act.
