First Wedding for Filesharing-Religion Kopimism
Vor ein paar Monaten wurde die schwedische Kopimism-Religion offiziell anerkannt und vor ein paar Tagen haben sie auf der Share-Konferenz das erste Paar getraut. Ich mag vor allem die Stelle über DNA-Remixing. Super Synonym fürs Kindermachen.
This belief in sharing is not restricted to files, code and information, but also applies to love. It was only a matter of time before the first Kopimist couple would become married, and last weekend this joyful union took place at the Share conference in Belgrade. On stage, a Romanian woman and an Italian man were joined in a holy Kopimist act. Both promised to share the rest of their lives together and to uphold the highest sharing standards. The Church was delighted to bring the news and commented: “We are very happy today. Love is all about sharing. A married couple share everything with each other.”
Like any other matrimony, a Kopimism marriage is bound by rules. The Church of Kopimism allows the couple to share their love with others, as long as those others don’t steal it. Most importantly, however, they have to copy and remix themselves. “Hopefully, they will copy and remix some DNA-cells and create a new human being. That is the spirit of Kopimism. Feel the love and share that information. Copy all of its holiness.”
