Abstract: This article looks at the recent developments in society in the context of copyright laws which have far reaching implication in any given society. It also examines connections between religion, law and social recognition. It pays particular attention to the attempts made to propagate beliefs which oppose international copyright laws and secure a cult in a given society; thus bringing to light a juxtaposition of religion being given recognition by law while the same tending to oppose the very foundations of it. The article also emphasizes that while convention emerges making footing on institution of religion, yet it cannot override law. The law on the other hand may be compelled by the reason of balance of scales to offer relief through recognition, but not quite one that sublimes the Themisian grip over the scales of justice. This requires an optimization on both the sides.
