As someone who produces computer application software, I can tell you that copyrights have a place.

An example:  I spend 500 hours developing a piece of software for a company.  I do this for a living, so I need to be paid for that time and effort (or I simply would not do it).  That software needs to be copyrighted so it cannot be used by the competitors of my client; that would be unfair, since my client would have paid for the development and it would be an unfair advantage to their competitors if they were to receive it for free.  Normally there are non-distribution clauses in the contract to prevent the custom software from being distributed to any other company by either my client or my company, to protect both of our interests.
