You can't eat money.  Money is just a means to organize the distribution
of other goods.  Stopping the distribution of other goods is countering
its principal purpose.  Works in the public domain are goods, wealth,
culture, quality of life for everyone.  Locking them away for perpetuity
is counter to the progress and continuing enrichment of humanity by
culture.
