You're making a general statement (that copyright assignment is bad), but
hanging on to a specific example . Look at other projects that require
copyright assignment, such as Evolution, and see whether the points you make
 I'm not particularly interested in contributing to Helix for related
reasons (but not solely the issue of copyright assignment, which I believe
to be fair in most cases).
