From Wiki:


Missionary Church of Kopimism
The Missionary Church of Kopimism is a congregation of file sharers (http://forum.woodenboat.com/wiki/File_sharing) which hold that copying information is a sacred virtue. The sect, which is based in Sweden, is petitioning the Swedish government to have their church officially recognized as a religion[1] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-Jackson-0)[2] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-1)[3] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-CITROME-2).
The sect's followers are called Kopimists from copy me[4] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-3). According to the church, "In our belief, communication is sacred." [5] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-4)
At the end of December 2011 a branch of the Swedish government registered The Missionary Church of Kopimism as a religion. Henceforth Kopimism is recognized as a religion in Sweden and is no longer referred to as a sect.[6] (http://forum.woodenboat.com/#cite_note-5)

We'd have to come up with a cool name . . . shouldn't be too tough for this crewe.

I call dibs on a chair in the treasury. ;)
