Essentially, PayPal cut off the Kopimist Church because one of their supporters operates TUEBL, an ebook sharing website.

They happen to be raising Bitcoin for their legal fund.

I find the freedom of religion angle for the right to copy interesting.

Before reading about this, I had no idea that Kopimism was actually a religion, rather than a social movement.

I'm a Kopimist, I do feel we are being persecuted for our beliefs.
