Copyright is a tricky subject. While I fully support the original purpose of copyright law—to incentivize authors and inventors to create more to share—I am disappointed in what it has become.
And while I fully respect everyone's individual right to choose how best to share their works and make a living, I must abstain from "business as usual". If someone sees value in what I share and thinks they can improve upon (or make money from) my work, they have my blessing. I hope that my contribution to the inherently collaborative process of human expression and knowledge helps inspire others to join in.
However, in order to promote my ideals, I retain all rights provided by US and international copyright law. Counter-intuitive as it might seem, this is a requirement for "copyleft" licensing.
