Uncopyright : Generous or Stupid?

Uncopyright, the term I got when I was reading articles from Leo Babauta. For me personally, it's a bit odd for a writer (or in this case, blogger), uncopyright his/her masterpiece, let people copy, edit, or even get some earning by re-publish it.

Why would he do it, I wander. Is he a super duper rich guy who need no "extra income" or is he a generous person who like to share without expecting nothing in return. Or, simply because he is stupid.

Here's what his opinion about the uncopyright :
If someone feels like sharing my content on their blog, or in any other form for that matter, that’s a good thing for me. If someone wanted to share my ebook with 100 friends, I don’t see how that hurts me. My work is being spread to many more people than I could do myself. That’s something to celebrate, as I see it.

Having the words spread out and reach more people is something to celebrate. This is where the whole idea about uncopyright resonates to me. Isn't it why we start our blog in the first place? To share our words, our messages, inspire people to do differently, encourage them to be a better person.

Does it matter if it us or other writer/blogger say it? Will it hurt us, if our name isn't written in people's list of influencer? One that showing how much we contribute to people success (or maybe failure). Does the credits are so important more than the fact that we change people's live through our word? Despite it come right through us or from another who cite or quote our words.

Does it hurt us so bad hence we protect the words so strictly?

I'd personally say no. It doesn't matter whether people want to use my words. I think it's better to see the fact that the words are spread out wider. With or without my name on it. That's why I blog in the first place. To share goodness to the world.

But of course, it's just me. Everyone can have their own opinions aren't they. What about you?
