Copy Me
Welcome to the Missionary Church of Kopimism, or, as the New Yorker puts it, the First Church of Pirate Bay. 
Its guiding principles are the inalienable right to share and copy. Last week it became Sweden’s newest registered religion.
Via The New Yoker:

“We see the world as built on copies,” [Isak] Gerson told me. “We often talk about originality; we don’t believe there’s any such thing. It’s certainly that way with life—most parts of the world, from DNA to manufacturing, are built by copying.” The highest form of worship, he said, is the remix: “You use other people’s works to make something better.”
