I would rather have no copyright law at all rather than the nasty copyright
law we currently have.

Those who think a reasonable copyright law makes sense might want to fight
hard to have the current laws made more reasonable because the folks who are
getting the changes they want introduced into the law are likely to push
things so far that the public demands that it be done atay with completely.

Copyright notices generally "lie" by omitting fair use and other exceptions.
And say things in ways as to misinform the general population.

Yes, but one deos not get to negotiate the contract. One does not sign the
contract. But one is held to the terms of the contract.

As I say above, those who consider themselves reasonable coppyright proponents
need to fight hard to see that the laws get made more reasonable.

You do not explain how those who do not want to enter into this agreement can
do so.

If that person was a party to the covenant.

Why? You may think the covenant is totally bogus.

What if I invented a cure for X terrible disease. What if I then said that as
the creator of this intellectual property it was my desire that only people
with Y characteristics should make use of this cure. What if I entered into
covenants with people willing to go alone with this.

Do you really think that if someone who did not meet my characteristics and
who was suffereing from X would be wrong in making use of Y should they come
upon the information? Would they be wrong for spreading to info to others
suffering from X?

all the best,
