     The problem here is that you are fixating on the idea that you
somehow are or might some day be the Robber Baron. It's like you
fancy yourself the hero in Atlas Shrugged. Although you are rather
more like the disposable foreign labor that would be employed by
such a "hero".

     As with any creative work: far more benefit goes to those
that use the work than those that seek to make themselves rich
by controlling access to it. Few people are Robber Barons and
most people are just passengers.

     You are just a noisy poser. You don't have to ever worry 
about the prospects of making money with any sort of licensing
scheme.
