  so, e.g., my current signature was not "creative work" on my part?  I
  wonder how you would distinguish coming up with it from coming up with a
  line of code, or a line in a newspaper article I'm writing.  if anything,
  the signature was _more_ creative than a line that is part of a much
  greater whole, which could be argued to be "creative work" made up of
  lines meaningless by themselves.

  I'd hate to contribute anything to a "community" who would decide whether
  _they_ wanted to give me credit for my work.
