That's just a basic tenant of property law (and not just intellectual property) in the Anglo-American legal tradition (including the US, UK, Canada, Australia and so on - I don't know what the French or German legal systems require). You can't just let other people use your property without your permission, or one day you might find out that it isn't really yours.
