It is just incredible to see all these copyright marks spreading over the
World Wide Web. So many of them there are, that you can hardly see the proud
texts underneath any more. Is it just another evidence of how the formal
kills the functional ?
But wait. Think... Don't you feel, don't you sense, that something is very
wrong there. And then... How can so many people be so wrong so simultaneously
Don't sign anything ! Ever. Did not you ever notice that anything
you sign just puts you into more trouble? Ain't that not yet clear to you ?
So why are you still following this cursed path ?
Why is it not yet plain to you that, by just doing nothing, by
not signing your work and by casually encouraging people to steal
it, you have a real chance to get rid of a whole bunch of nuisances
Think about the police, priests and politicians, their eagerness for
censorship and the specific kind of pleasure they get when sending people to
jail... Well, you would better do without them would'nt you ?
Think of the always hypocritical praise of your contemporaries. Think how
jealous and mean they are and how quick they can be as regards inventing lies
and misinterpretations about anyone's work. Are you going to allow them doing
that to your very intellectual blood, sweat and tears ? Consider how skilled they
are in building traps to cause the fall of their betters. Are you going to give
them that sort of pleasure ?
Think of all the low, pitiful and coward ways by which people will abuse of
your authority as soon as you will possibly happen to earn
Think of all the stupidities and lies they will say, pretending to have
understood the treasures of your mind whereas they never caught the very first
word of it.
You don't trust me ? OK then, check it on your friends, and
evaluate how deeply they read you. Ah! You already did it. Good! And you let
the game go far enough to draw some accurate and bitter conclusions regarding
the result ? Perfect!
Now look...Those ones are your very best friends,
aren't they ? And you discussed the whole stuff again and again with them, so
that you honestly thought that they almost wrote your works with you. Correct ?
And they know you well and they do care for you, don't they
So now just imagine what potential foreign readers could possibly do to
Can you foresee the disaster and the waste ? Oh! Yes you can!
So just trust me. Don't ever sign your work ! Don't be so childish. Drop that
- Be true and honest to yourself. Think further! Think deeper! Think of all
the crimes, wars and concentration camps and all that your "innocent" audience
may make in your name if you happen to sign your work!
Do you really
want to take the risk of seeing your name cursed by billions of people when
they die ? No, of course not. So... Don't let them do that to you ! Don't even
let them do that to the shadow of your ghost. See, here is the quite easy means to
avoid such a pitiful fate : just don't sign your work!
Believe me and
listen! Create the most delicate and beautiful things you can, yes. But hide
carefully your name. Cover your footprints. Step wisely in the mist and
disappear for eternity. Be wiser. Prevent even your own nasty heirs from
mistreating your thought for money's sake. Just give your work away. Yes, give
Don't be mean ! Do it right. If you really think you are a creator, then at
least show some evidence of self respect, and give your work the ultimate touch
of professionalism : Don't sign it. God did not! He just dropped His
excellent Creation and then He ran away as quickly and silently as He could. And
later, sure sign of the most sacred elegance, he just pretended that it was all
the Devil's fault.
So, be wise. Listen to the Lord ! Follow the High, the Holy
behavior. Be on the Creator's side. Be smart, and don't sign your
Dare! Dare face the truth and face yourself ! If you are not too sure
whether you are really a creator or not, still the best is not to sign your work
! Just let people steal it freely, this will give you the surest evaluation of
your actual talent. The quicker they will run with your work in their bags, the
better you are.
Stop wasting your time and money and let them care about
dissemination. If your work is really good or just somewhat useful, then it
shall fly its own flight away and propagate by itself.
Look! Did you ever
happen to pay for anything good and reliable ? No, of course not. Everything you are paying for only causes you all sorts of bitter
disappointments. Just consider Microsoft software for instance... So don't sign
your work and give it away. Give it away for free ! It's the surest evidence of
excellence and quality.
Don't sign your work and give it away or you
shall face the risk of ending up like Bill Gates. Hey, don't laugh ! It's bloody catching.
- Now let's assume that unlike most of the Rich, you do have some self
respect. Good ! You are on the right track. Carry on. That's just another reason
not to sign your work.
If you do, your will end being mixed up will a crowd
of brats who are so pitiful that they have to use costly commercial ads to force
their stupidities into their neighbours brains. Do you find the slightest hint
of dignity in such a behavior ? Is that compatible with the size and extent of
your pride ? Is that compatible with the range and breadth and height of your
hopes? Of course not. You cannot kid yourself on this point, can you ?
you know what you'd rather not do. Don't sign your work! And as you proudly
piss, give it away for free...
So I hope you now caught me well. I hope you have understood where all our
evils come from. All the mess we are in, basically results from
only one thing: you-are-signing-your-work.
You are using this bloody copyright mark everywhere on top of it... This of
course, without thinking, - might it be a bit, just a little bit - about the
Stop that, idiots, you are just hurting
yourselves! Be smart, be clever, and listen to sweet golden holy sister
laziness ! Don't ever sign your work ! Drop this stupid habit once for all, you
are on the wrong side.
You may go on smoking if you like. Yes you can. You
may even resume smoking. That's no point. You are only harming yourself.
It's not that bad after all, you know... So, yes, go on smoking, it's a
But please, stop signing your work! You are spreading the very
root of all pollutions throughout the entire Earth. Remove this bloody
signature needle from your veins, remove it now ! Or they will all start sucking your blood to death again.
well... I can see that you don't trust me. I am not surprised. You
are addicts, that's all. OK then, I don't object. Do as you
like... That's your business. Not mine. You are all supposed to be
grown-ups, aren't you ?
But yet when you have a moment, when you are on your own, in the middle
of the night, in the depths of your bed, under your blankets, think.
Think a bit further. Take your time, walk it through on your both feet,
walk it through at your own pace, but walk it through nevertheless.
Just think for a while... And then, when things start getting clearer a
bit for you, don't hesitate. Be clever for once, and throw all
your signatures and copyrights away.
Then, I promise
you shall see how quickly and easily the entire world and everything - even
you - can improve.
