I agreee.  I was trying to point out my  understanding of the problem.
I  find (b)  a good balance  between "giving  back"  and  not imposing
burden on people.  How to actually encourage  people to "give back in"
is a completely  separate issue which  cannot, IMHO, be resolved via a
license (not more than you can't make people not steal by having laws
against stealing, as everyday life shows us).
