(NEWS.com.au) — FILE sharing has become a recognised religion in Sweden after a movement successfully registered the Church of Kopimism.

The group of 3000 members were official recognised by Swedish authorities and hope to make file sharing legal.

Spiritual leader of the Church of Kopimism Isak Gerson said the group’s main ritual is the act of copying and connecting with each other by sharing information.

“For the Church of Kopimism, information is holy and copying is a sacrament,” Mr Gerson wrote on the church’s website.
