Kopimism

According to this slashdot article, and this website There is a Swedish Organization trying to declare file sharing as an integral part of a religious movement.

Now this is an EPIC level hack.

according to the website:

* All knowledge to all
* The search for knowledge is sacred
* The circulation of knowledge is sacred
* The act of copying is sacred.

I hope the Pastafarians jump all over this. Or maybe the Jedi.

I am now extrapolating a future religious movement, persecuted by governments all over the world whose main tenant involves the freedom of information... hidden splinter cells removing DRM and distributing warez as part of their daily rituals.
