And another thing -- you sound like you think that there is only one context
in which a given work can be used. E.g. "an essay on free software" as an
article to read and get argumentation from. Thing is, any work can be used in
any context.

Goal was to enphasis the fact some (and moreover any) works can be misrepresented regarding the author's view[1].

"An essay" is a strong sample, because it shares ideas themselves and is at most not a self-representation (it is the perception from the author/provider given to the recipient).

And, yes, anyone can turns your words the wrong way then claims that words yours, surely more by choosing a small piece /out of context/ than by rewrite the whole :)

As you explained, that's illegal regarding (derivatives ok) licenses to attribute to an "original" author /~ twisted ideas/. Just take a look at news on any media for /minutely/ occurences of /twisted ideas from the ones of authors/.

I acknowlege : this is author's censorship, and author's censorship still exists even when a work has been falled in public domain[2].

You point right: A middle way misses regarding non derivative, which would be "fair derivative". On translations, on adaptations (intended audience), on media porting (eg: a novel to comics, play, movie, ...), on aggregation (collage, ...) ... complex to implement.

"Seeding" should always be allowed. Regarding history, copyright laws restricting that are just a one century bullshit. They /twisted/ how humanity works.

Plagiarism has nothing to do with seeding, while "porting a novel from a century to another" /and/ acknowlege it ("from ... by ..., year ...") has nothing to do with plagiarism.

What /acknowledgements/ misses to famous plays of 16-19th centuries (or, contrary, such aknowledgements can also be a total fantasy from an author) ^^.

[1] moreover, that's *hopefully* legal in France to /totally misrepresent/ it, valuable for a song, a play, ... (a satire, ...) [2] here in France, public domain is mainly on the valuable part of copyright (earning money), not on the immaterial part.
