I completely agree but /that/ is not really a matter of copyright but, 
rather, a desirable obligation of disclosure, such as, in the U.S. when 
a food manufacturer has to provide a list of ingredients or when a 
mathematician announces a new theorem.

The problem with copyrights really has everything to do with "property", 
in this case the legal redefinition of "intellectual property" being 
forced worldwide, which is precisely why it has become BIG money even if 
certainly not for the authors/creators.
