Video: Church of Kopimism - recognized by the government of Sweden

The government of Sweden has recognized a new church - Church of kopimism. This church believes that all knowledge is sacred and the right to share it is sacred. The church has as its sacred symbols CTRL+C and CTRL+V. These are the commands for copying and pasting. For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament. This comes at a time when the US government is pushing ahead with the SOPA bill ( Stop Online Piracy Act). This new bill which is being met with a lot of opposition is still forging ahead. If it becomes law then websites that help promote torrenting and file-sharing will be banned. ISP's will be asked to make them unavailable. 2012 needed to start with some sort of controversy and here we have it. 
Check out the video below for more details: 

You can visit the church's website but all you get is a static page. They have promised to be up once the storm settles.
