said by OSUGoose:Monster should be going to jail for overcharging for the same cable that you can get without their brand name for way less money. Why isn't that illegal?!!?
They are stealing the brand's image. Go out there and try and sell knock off Monster Cables and see how fast your in jail.
Oh yeah, because it's corporate America where it's supply and demand... right? Wait, it's still counterfeiting... except that Monster sells you the cheap stuff for a lot more as opposed to what the knockoff guys do in that they sell you cheap stuff for cheap.
I got news for you. Large corporations do nothing more than make the same cheap stuff, but because they have the money to trademark their names/logos and spend the billions you pay them for it to get celebrities to endorse those products, they should be allowed to rip you off?
I guess we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Huh?
