The Missionary Church of Kopimism, a religion based around file sharing has been recognized by the Swedish state.

Since its beginning in 2010, members of The Missionary Church of , a group rooted in the belief that ‘information is holy and copying is a sacrament’ have been trying to get their file sharing recognized and after a series of failed attempts, the Swedish state finally gave them its official blessing.

Isak Gerson, a Philosophy student and a ‘religious’ file-sharer, founded Kopimism to spread and protect his beliefs. The group which now has thousands of followers all over consider the official state recognition a huge step towards their goal to freely live out their beliefs and protect it from ‘legal stigmata’.

Kopimism has its roots in the document “POwr, broccoli and Kopimi“, a manifesto released by The Pirate Bay which contains 100 ‘Kopimists’ principles that was created in attempt to enlighten others and spread their message.
