Your point is more dangerous than mine. If everyone based their work on
not hurting others feelings or potentially causing offense there would
be a whole chasm of artwork that is not created and we would be worse
off for it.
If you license your art in a way that ensures you have means to extract
residual income from people who abuse your license then you have laid
the groundwork to protect your work from abuse by others.
However demanding the artists of the world all play fair and respect
each other is a pipe dream.
Demanding that people stop remixing music with unlicensed samples is
following a path that leads to everyone doing exactly what they are
told. I'm sure the powers that be would love this to happen.
Expecting every artist to get permission before they create their art is
just plain idiocy.
