He used the term "original," didn't he?  "Original expression" is
the criterion for copyright -- and the meaning is that aspects of
a work have originated with a particular author.  You can have
different authors come up with the same work independently, and
they would not infringe on each other's work.

I reserve no rights restricting copying, modification or
distribution of this incidentally recorded communication. 
Original authorship should be attributed reasonably, but only so
far as such an expectation might hold for usual practice in
ordinary social discourse to which one holds no claim of
exclusive rights.
