Since this rule was introduced I am inclined either not to help others or express my opinion on any images.

In my opinion, that's an over-reaction. Legally, in most countries, the person who squeezed the shutter button retains sole, perpetual copyright on the image by default (barring other agreements or laws). Making a copy of a copyrighted image violates that law. On the other hand, "helping" others or "expressing opinions" about an image violates no laws. In order to protect photographers' rights against those who would exploit them, it's not unreasonable to ask photographers to make a declaration relinquishing their rights for a specific purpose, given the litigious nature of society these days.

Just my opinion.
