Project Gutenberg and Electronic Libraries
There is a wonderful group of people out there creating an, electronic library of great literary works. These people, though not necessarily Kopimist in name, are truly acting in the spirit of the holy principle of kopimi. Originally founded by Michael Hart in 1971, the collection has grown from a single copy of The U.S. Declaration of Independence to include more than 40,000 items. All of the books on their site are in the public domain, meaning that they can be copied, remixed, and shared legally by everyone because copyright has either expired, or has been waived (such as in the case of U.S. government documents). More information about what it means for something to be in the public domain can be found here or here.
Project Gutenberg can be found here. In some cases, their books are available in multiple electronic formats for different e-readers, as well as different languages.
