You can't copyright your face because it is something that is exposed in the "public domain" on a daily or regular basis.
Exactly! You're just hitting the controversy. Why can't I copyright my face, but I can copyright my text, images, audio and video on my website that is exposed in the "public domain" on a daily or regular basis? WWW is a "public domain", remember? My website is my online face after all. If you have configured your web server for anonymous access, all you have there is exposed in the "public domain" and per your definition above you can't copyright it!
