In the shadow of the culture industry’s final crisis of the 20th-century, grows a larger portrait of the POwr, broccoli and Kopimi. The culture industry’s complete failure is followed by the uncanny success of the diffused structure of an Internet elite, spread the world over. The book you’re about to read has no author, no designer, no typesetter, no distribution channel. Nevertheless, you have it in front of you. How did that happen?

Read the frightening instructions of a loosely coherent core of IT specialists grafted into an unsuspecting generation of youths, and how the group stole the eggs, dollars and jpegs in front of the powerless establishment and strong financial interests. Learn how servers, seeders, trackers, e-mail, company formation, foreign investors, Ikko’s weekly allowance, scandalous advertisements, links and search services, infiltrated and destroyed an entire world that had nowhere to run, no one to consult, and no one to trust...

The machine, which operates under the radar frequency is unhindered from the Cambodian jungle to the gay neighborhoods of San Francisco, via the empty beaches of Tel-Aviv, and into the Internet of plain folks in Jönköping /clearsuburbs and Gothenburg harbor. It leaves no one unmoved and mangles everything in its path. Technically superior and physically independent it’s constantly transforming, mutating and reappearing in new guises and under new codenames. With a stranglehold on its opponents it’s completely untouched and even more – incomprehensible.

It has rightly been said that this is the first time Kopimi has freed the world and we can be sure that it’s not the last.


Kopimi es una licencia antitética al Copyiright creada por Piratbyrån que indica que un trabajo u obra puede ser copiado para cualquier tipo de uso ya sea comercial o no, la licencia puede utilizarse en páginas web, blogs, libros, software, música, entre otros (1). En el año 2005, Ibi Kopimi Botani, uno de los fundadores de Piratbyrån diseñó un logo para la licencia (2), el cual empezó a aparecer en la página de inicio de The Pirate Bay (3). POwr Broccoli and KOPIMI, también conocido como The Pirate Bay Manifesto, fue un libro publicado en el año 2009 por Piratbyrån como una lista con los principios destinados a inspirar a aquellos que desean vivir el estilo de vida Kopimi y compartir libremente información e ideas en Internet (3); el texto puede descargarse de forma gratuita desde los torrents de The Pirate Bay (3). Aunque Piratbyrån se disolvió en 2010 (4), Kopimi se ha convertido en un movimiento que dio paso a otros proyectos e incluso a la religión Kopimista (2), la cual empezó a ser reconocida de manera oficial por el gobierno sueco en el 2012 (5). Al igual que Kopimi, la religión Kopimista busca promover el conocimiento a través del intercambio y el uso de la información libre de los derechos de autor (2).

El manifiesto viene datado en 2001 que cuando aparece Antipiratbyrån y se forma o comienza el Kopimi (https://www.kopimi.com/)


Piratbyrån, formado en 2003 en Suecia, surgió como respuesta a Antipiratbyrån, grupo respaldado por compañías como Sony, Twentieth Century Fox y Walt Disney, que tenía por objetivo condenar la piratería, procesar casos de infracción de derechos de autor y ofrecer representación a quienes solicitaran asistencia legal (7), como era de esperarse, Piratbyrån fue un grupo que estuvo en favor del libre intercambio de la información (7). En el 2003 el grupo creo el sitio web The Pirate Bay que rápidamente se convirtió en el sitio de intercambio de archivos más visitado del mundo (7). El grupo se disolvió en el año 2010 tras la muerte de Ibi Kopimi Botani, uno de los fundadores de Piratbyrån (4).
