Stefan,

It is hard to understand what you meant since we don't have a common frame
of reference.

It sounds like you want to share with others.  That is great.

But it also sounds like you want to disregard how the world works with
respect to copyrights.  That won't work.  As I have just proved in this
same discussion, it is very common that no matter what you know, there is
more that you don't know.  Copyrights are complicated and won't go away.

In your case, it sounds like you need to find ways to share that are as
easy as possible.  That is what Apache licenses are for.
