A closer look at the Church of Kopimism, the Swedish-based religion which worships anti-copyright.


About a week and a half ago, Sweden saw the registering of a brand new religion: the Church of Kopimi (pronounced "copy me"), which is based on the tenets of anti-copyright activism. The New Yorker has taken a slightly deeper dive on the new religion and its young founder, Isak Gerson. Rather than focusing on the traditional territory of worship, the Church of Kopimi's basic mantra is that originality doesn't exist, seeing the world as "built on copies." The article looks a bit further into the origins of the religion which now says that the highest form of worship is the remix.
