 Standards As Intellectual Property: An Economic Approach
Copyright is given easily, without any substantial requirements analogous to the requirements of non-obviousness and utility in patent law, and provides a long period of protection.
Patent law should be, and is, much more grudging in permitting the creators of ideas to establish rights to them, and much less generous in the length of time for which protection is provided, than is copyright law.
Copyright law attempts to prevent that from happening through the doctrine of merger, under which protection is severely restricted when it threatens to block the only way, or one of a small number of possible ways, of expressing a particular idea.

 EFF: What Peer-to-Peer Developers Need to Know about Copyright Law
Copyright law applies to virtually every form of expression that can be captured (or, to use the copyright term of art, "fixed") in a tangible medium, such as on paper, film, magnetic tape, hard drive, optical media, or (arguably) in RAM.
Copyright owners have also argued that digital transmissions can qualify as a distribution, and possibly a public performance (in the world of copyright law, "public performance" may include the act of transmitting a copyrighted work).
The law of contributory infringement therefore presents a developer with a binary choice: you can either include mechanisms that enable monitoring and control of user activities (and use them to stop allegedly infringing activity when you receive complaints), or choose a truly decentralized architecture wherein such monitoring and control is impossible without extensive redesign.
