Most people write or speak someone else's words from time to time. The law against using someone else's intellectual property is not often used because ..........................?
 
1)  There is no easy way to enforce it.
 
2)  The damage is not always monetary.
 
3)   Lawyers may not accept all cases.
 
4)  The infraction may be done out of sight of the author.
 
5)  There are tactics that allow certain types of people to take advantage of someone's intellectual property.
 
6)  People are confused as to what is and isn't acceptable.
 
7) Lawyers may disagree over the interprettation of the law.
 
Cool The law is in flux; constantly changing and evolving to fit new technology or situations.
 
9) Agreements can be disguised to look fair while actually giving an advantage to one of the users.
 
The situation can get pretty frustrating when a person has written something that is unique and fascinating but which can be claimed by someone else.
 
Perhaps a citizen's watch group is one answer.  This group might hear complaints from individuals who cannot get a resolution under the law but who are certain that they have been wronged.  The group could put public pressure on any wrong doers.
 
The group, which could be made up of reasonable laymen, could apply their own judgments as to what was right and what was wrong.
 
The group could see through the hocus pocus of some wrong doers and get to reasonable resolutions for complaintants.

After a rainbow has disappeared, what has changed?
 
I am still the same and the world is still the same and the rainbow is gone as if it never existed.
 
It seems in the case of improvement that the law is not a factor and in the case of agreements the law favors those people who wish to make agreements in which they are not obligated at all.

I entered a forum with the intent to accomplish something.  The owners of the forum have effectively thwarted any progress whatsoever.  
 
In fact, that now seems to be THEIR intent.
