Kopimism

While I respect Isak Gerson as an intellectual, as a politician and as a human being, I still fail to see the point of the Church of  Kopimism. While I’m glad it managed to be approved as an official belief system (I don’t see why it shouldn’t), it will never have the effect on copyright laws that Isak seems to think.

Or if it does, we will face much greater challenges – if followers of Kopimism can be allowed to file share for the sole reason that it is part of their religion, masses of ill deeds can be done through the exact same logic. And it has been done before.

Speaking as a pirate and as a file sharer: the full liberation of copyright laws would never surpass the beauty of a world free from ignorance, fanaticism, superstition and religion.

Ofcourse, if the church helps in getting the pirate ideology across, good for it.

  1. I’m a bit curious what you think my intentions are. I have not wished for this to use some loophole in the law – simply because such a loophole doesn’t exist. I know that there’s been some discussion about that method between other confessional kopimists, and that a lot of media spins it that way. But it’s not a goal for me personally. I’m glad we don’t separate religious crimes from non-religious crimes. That’s how I’d like it to stay.

    1. I don’t think I’ve seen any such comment made by you especially, but as you say some others have talked about it, as well as the media. From what I’ve heard from you specifically, I’ve had no reason to assume any hidden intentions, and I hope (and assume until further knowledge) that there are none. Rereading this post, I think I was a tad too personal in calling on you as an individual and not the kopimist community. I’m glad you confirm that you have some idea of how the law works though.
