The Church of Kopimism

The Church of Kopimism is officially registered by the Swedish government. For the church, "information is holy and copying is sacrament." Worshipers can participate in kopyactings, in which kopimists share information "through copying and remix."  Founder Isak Gerson hopes it's "one step towards the day we can live out our faith without fear of prosecution."
