Pirate Bay inmate claims religious persecution: The Missionary Church of Kopimism

Peter Sunde has complained that his religious rights have been impinged after he was refused permission to meet a representative of a church inspired by the keyboard shortcuts for cut and paste.

The Pirate Bay co-founder was arrested in May after almost two years on the run, and is currently serving an eight-month sentence in Västervik prison following a conviction for copyright offences.
"The board of spiritual care (NAV) doesn't have any representative for the Kopimist faith with whom they cooperate and therefore the Prison and Probation Service should provide permission for electronic contact with representatives from the Kopimist faith to believers," Sunde wrote in his complaint.

The Missionary Church of Kopimism was founded by 19-year-old 'Young Pirate' member Isak Gersonin 2010, and was formally recognized as a religious organization by the Swedish government at the third attempt in December 2011. 
The Church derived its name from the online movement "Kopimi" (read as "copyme"), in which users are invited to add a "Kopimi" logo to their website if they are willing to have their information copied by others.
While the church denies any direct contact with The Pirate Bay, it considers the copying and dissemination of information akin to a religious service, or sacrament. Kopimism furthermore holds the keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste, CTRL+C and CTRL+V, as sacred symbols. continue reading

On the same shelf:

  • Welcome to the missionary church of kopimism:
    In our belief, communication is sacred. Communication needs to be respected. It is a direct sin to monitor and eavesdrop on people.
    The absolute secrecy is holy in the church of kopimism.
    In the individual pastoral care and confession with the kopimist priests (the Ops), priests are protected under Swedish law by an absolute professional secrecy.
    Copyright Religion is our absolute opposite – Ongoing obstruction of copying.
    We challenge all copyright believers – most of which have a great deal of influence in politics, and who derive their power by limiting people’s lives and freedom. What they most of all want to limit the knowledge. We need to steel ourselves for their hatred and aggression.
    - Copy. download, uplooad!
    - All knowlegde to all!
    - Information technology is not to be feathered by laws.
