Individual authors

Individual authors' creativity drivers vary depending on their personal believes, social position and accessible wealth. Depending on these and other factors, authors might have three main drivers: survival needs, quality of life, and self-realization (which includes a greater societal good for many authors). Society's copyright infrastructure aids fulfillment of all three drivers through the availability of commercial and free (in many senses) licenses, allowing them (in theory) to control creative works distribution and charge for their use.
