Islamic clerics in Egypt have

clerics in Egypt have teamed up with the Business Software Association and issued a fatwa against copyright piracy. (Found on Slashdot).

“Piracy is the worst type of theft and is prohibited by Islam,” (Sheikh Ibrahim) Atta Allah declared.

Well alrighty then. Mohammed wasn’t big on swappin’ warez and rippin’ MP3s, I take it?

Clarification: The fatwa was from the clerics, not the BSA. As far as I know they do injunctions, not fatwas, which I guess are arguably far more dangerous…
