Of course it's going to eventually go into public domain. That's the contract. I want to get paid for code that I wrote 20 years ago and are still in use. The company says they already paid me. What's the difference?

Your whole arguing point seems to keep circling around to "because I say so, and if you disagree you are saying gimme, gimme, gimme". I say that someone who creates something under a set of rules and then gets the rules changed so they will get paid even more is the one saying gimme, gimme, gimme.

You basically assert that copyright should be permanently assigned to the author and his or her heirs because, well, I guess because you say so. So far you haven't given any real rational for it, any benefit to society as a whole, why you think this is a good idea. You just say, because I say so and if you disagree you want something for nothing.
