You misunderstand. I was talking something else, about what rights
the author should have over what happens to his own original artistic
creation while nevertheless allowing said creation to be incorporated
into others' creations.
"This thing here is mine. You can use any of it you want to
do anything you want, and I have no rights to *your* own work.
However, you cannot mislead the public by misrepresenting your
own *additional* artistic elaborations upon my work as being
anything other your own efforts, not mine. You must clearly
admit that these embellishments are yours and not from the
original, but you don't, of course, have to do anything else
about/with them. In short, you must be honest."
