22205236 story Idle: File-Sharing Is Not a Religion, Says Swedish Government 250 Posted by timothy on Saturday July 09, 2011 @04:46PM from the more-of-an-ethos-or-perhaps-a-lifestyle dept. Dangerous_Minds writes "ZeroPaid is reporting on an attempt in Sweden to recognize filesharing as a religion. The religion's website calls this 'Kopimism' and says that sharing of knowledge is sacred. Apparently, Swedish authorities were not convinced. A recent report shows that the attempt failed to convince the authorities to recognize Kopimism as a religion."
