First Kopimist marriage celebrated in Belgrade

A few months ago this Blog reported news of first official recognition by Swedish authorities of new church known as Kopimism
As our readers will remember, the central tenet of Kopimism is the right to file-share and its sacred symbols are CTRL+C and CTRL+V. 
Apparently this new religion has been very successful so far and has gathered thousands of believers.
As reported by TorrentFreak, two of them (a Romanian lady and her Italian beau) have eventually fallen in love and decided to share their nuptial vows under Kopimist service. 
Would you CTRL+C and CTRL+V with me?
This is not the only things newly-weds were invited to share at the ceremony (photos here; video here), which was held last weekend in Belgrade, during the Share conference.
Indeed, the Kopimist priest also invited the newlyweds to “copy and remix some DNA-cells and create a new human being.”
A spokesperson for the Kopimist Church commented: "We are very happy today. Love is all about sharing. A married couple share everything with each other.”
Apparently - as foreseeable - nuptial vows under Kopimist rules do not include sexual exclusivity and fidelity. As explained by TorrentFreak, the Church of Kopimism allows the couple to share their love with others, as long as those others don’t steal it.
