Suppose you "copyright" the first hundred million digits of PI. You put them in a database. Are you saying that it's ok to prevent me from calculating my own hundred million digits of PI? This is ludicrous, but you can't deny that digits of PI are indeed facts and can be put in a dictionary. So your "reasonable" analysis is really (probably unwittingly) justifying a truly evil proposition.

Real Users never know what they want, but they always know when your program doesn't deliver it.
