...And the priest pushed the sacred combination CTRL+C & CTRL+V

Recommended Posts

Just read about this in finnish media.

 

Here's the story shortly in english:

Fascinating stuff. Sure, information can be thought to be sacred, why not. The problem comes how can the practitioners of this new faith conduct their sacred act of copying and sharing with copyright protected material. Then again, people are constantly being killed due to religious reasons, so copyright infringment in the name of faith, in that sense, feels rather benign. ^_^ Soon shall the Kopimists be prosecuted by the copyright agencies like the christians and jews were prosecuted by other groups in the past?

 

It will be interesting to see how this develops.

Yep, I hope more people get on board with this...the entire idea that "religious freedom" should give you rights that other people don't have is ridiculous. Like the Australian who fought for the "religious right" to wear a colander on his head, the concept is just begging to be mocked.

To paraphrase, "those who join must share all of their personal information with the church".

 

This is no different than those who join cults having to hand over all their personal belongings, on the promise that they'll no longer need them.

 

I agree with OrbWeaver.

Hehe, wonder what the'll replace Amen with. "Copy"? Or "Share"?
