You alluded to this earlier in the post by mentioning GPL and CC as efforts to
undo (or at least ameliorate some of the problems of) copyright laws ... for me
while current copyright laws remain enforceable I prefer to release stuff as GPL
so that I DO insist that redistributing that work involves an obligation to keep
it AND any improvements or adaptations to it, available to others.

Certainly I would prefer it if the copyright laws that permit some party to
adapt work which has been distributed freely and then claim some kind of
ownership of it to deny others access to it were thrown out. In this possible
and better world I would no longer feel the need to claim my dubious but
currently enforceable ownership in order to attach conditions to help keep the
work accessible to all. While the existing and deeply flawed legal situation
continues I do claim ownership and do make those restrictions, even while
arguing for changes to the law that would make those licenses, and others,
irrelevant.
