In the fashion industry, there is trademark protection but no copyright protection. You can copy any clothing or accessories and sell it as your own design. You can’t copy the trademark label.
It’s the same in the food industry. You cannot copyright a recipe.
It’s the same in the automobile industry. You cannot copyright the sculptural design.
Ditto on furniture industry designs. Those are also uncopyrightable.
Magic tricks, haircuts, open source software, tattoos, jokes, fireworks displays, board game rules, perfume smells, and other things come from industries which allow the world to own their work because the world grows smaller when people benefit from it.
Because of no ownership and no protection of your work, it’s unnecessary to sell your work. You produce more work because more people will benefit from it and they will innovate if they want to replicate or adapt it.
With that mindset, my blog has no copyright. My privacy statement since 2011 is explicit: “All words, images, video, and other content on this blog are uncopyrightable except where specified as the property of someone else.”
I used to have a copyright line in the footer of every blog page. After reading a minimalist blog post by Leo Babauta and watching the below talk by Johanna Blakley, I changed.
A minimalist lifestyle isn’t copyrightable either. Do you have one?
