I wonder if there will be a SOPAist religion. There could then be a holy war between the two. Online, of course. In a video game which you either buy or pirate, depending on your religious persuasion. Doing either would be considered an act of war by the other side.
Kopimi beliefs originated with the Swedish group called Piratbyran who believed that everything should be shared freely online without restrictions from copyright. Leader Isak Gerson, has recently had some disagreements with the Swedish Pirate Party where many people disagree with all religions.
Although the formal status of the Church doesn’t mean that copyright infringement is now permitted, the Church’s founder hopes that their beliefs will be considered in future lawmaking.
