The idea that ANYTHING put onto the internet automatically become
'public' domain is ludicrous. It should be the opposite. The new
platform (domain) that is waiting to emerge is one where everything
posted to it is private and highly encrypted , and only by permission
of the owner is anything made public.

It's also simply wrong. Anything put into the Internet is de facto and de jure copyright by its author, at least in any jurisdiction party to the Berne Convention (most wrongheaded thing the US has done was signing on). Now the question of implied licenses and fair use are much greyer areas.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
