I assume it is serious since ideas cannot be copyrighted in most (or 
maybe even all) countries.

 From the FAQ of the U.S. Copyright Office [1]:

"Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of 
operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed."

"How do I protect my idea?

Copyright does not protect ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of doing 
something. You may express your ideas in writing or drawings and claim 
copyright in your description, but be aware that copyright will not 
protect the idea itself as revealed in your written or artistic work."
