Sweden recently became the first nation officially to recognize a new religion called Kopimism, based on the principal that copying, disseminating and reconfiguring information constitutes a "sacred" act. Some argue that Kopimists are a bunch of "pirates" using religion to shield them from copyright liability. Others see it as an absurd act of political theater. In this article, I suggest that it is the crystallization of an emerging cultural value system centered around digital networks. Like copyright, and monastic Christianity before it, Kopimism represents a socioepistemological solution to the irreconcilability of traditional cultural values and emerging informatic flows.
