The problem with a definition this wide is it works for everything, just call everything "information" and by your definition, if you can automate copying its content then it its yours.
Actually, I didn't define "information"; but I probably should have used "facts" instead, because information is indeed usually defined quite "wide".
Now contrary to your opinion, Microsoft Do own the data for their operating systems, it just happens to be that they legally allow the data (APIs, STRUCTS, EQUATES etc ...) to be copied so that programmers can write software for their OS.
No, this is not "my opinion" - I repeated the legal status which makes a distinction between facts, original work and derivative work. Of course this distinction is somewhat artificial, but after all, the whole concept of "property" is an artificial construct, an invention of the human brain.
Now much the same problem exists with your view that the data is just "facts", if someone claimed that they owned copyright on "1 plus 1 = 2" they would be in trouble in that this "algorithm" just happens to be a matter of fact whereas "THIS_EQUATE == 12345678" being an identifiable piece of named data is the property of its creator.
Well, yes, there are philosophical problems - indeed, every file can also be viewed as a - more or less - big number, and it's perfectly valid to ask: why should anyone have the right to declare a certain number as his/her intellectual property?
Now regarding the stray images posted in the colosseum, the only ones I have posted were my own from memory, I tend to remove any that display titz 'n arse as it causes problems for people browsing the forum from their work.
I wasn't talking about photos of naked women, I was talking about innocent, simple photos, uploaded somewhere by members, not necessarily you, most likely without having the copyright of the material.
