I'm a huge advocate of copyright. Your post, however, was clearly an examination of an idea and would easily pass the fair use test.

Copyright law is not designed to stifle the sort of investigation you produced.

Fair use is the most abused excuse for copyright violation. But it has its place, an important one. From wiki on fair use: "Examples of fair use include commentary, criticism, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship."
