The philosophical belief that all information should be freely distributed and unrestricted. This philosophy encourages piracy of all types of media including music, movies, TV shows, and software.
The term kopimist (someone who practices kopimism) originates from the root word, kopimi, meaning copy me
www.thepiratebay.org is one of the easiest places to find people who practice Kopimism.
Dude 1: "Did that guy from Kemptville get arrested for breaching all those piracy laws?"
Dude 2: "Naw man, he went to the courts, but he told them he was just practicing kopimism."
A purposeful misspelling of the phrase "copy me". Kopimists believe that all media: movies, music, books, television shows, or other data should be legally allowed to be shared with everyone; they do not believe in copyright laws. The phrase is popular on certain torrent tracking sites suck as thepiratebay.org
