There are other types of creativity that are not protected by copyright, probably because it is much harder to copy them.

For example, suppose I design & build a totally unique house. Of course that would be news worthy so you might take a picture of my house and sell it to News Week. Then they might publish it in their magazine for the world to see. Now guess what. I can not legally copy that picture and use it in my local builder's newsletter because News Week owns the copyright. Everyone got compensation for my creative work but me because I am not protected.

Steve, some of that would not be too much of a loss, and definitely do not mean you. Of course opinions and tastes vary.
