Re: U.S. Government doesn't need permission

Just out of curiosity...

If I go buy a no-name, cheapo wallet and I make a Coach symbol myself in my basement and slap it on... just walk around with it telling everyone it is a Coach wallet, have I stolen the 'image'? Do I deserve to go to jail for that?

Or if I look at the patents for Monster Cables... buy the same special Low-Oxygen copper wire, connect the same style gold-plated connectors... in effect made my own Monster Cables and connected them in my car, have I stolen their design? Do I deserve to go to jail for that?

If you distribute the fake products, then you are in the very least open to a civil suit.

Which brings up the question of why government is acting almost exclusively on the behalf of corporations these days.

And if they are not distributed but instead used personally by you? I would fully expect OSUGoose to say it is also stealing and should be punished.
