Economic injustice, from odd angles

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

Economic injustice, from odd angles

Postby Mad Howler » Wed Mar 19, 2014 10:03 pm

I thought I would be ahead of the young'ns and share this bit of what I found about actions that negatively influence a company they do business with.

It turned out that they were already ahead of me and noticed something I overlooked. They asked why this entity called Homeland Security is after a company over trademark'ish / copyright'ish issues.
I had no answer, I have no recollection of US giving consent in this regard.
I thought this newish department of homeland security was about - security.
Appearantly I overlooked the newish Orwellian definition of security.
I find this troublesome.

Falls under the regulation of imports and exports, which does make some logical sense to be within the purview of Homeland. No sense having one group check imports for copyright/tariff purposes and a second group go back a recheck for contraband that could be used in an attack of some sort.

I'm more amazed that Fluke has a trademark on "Yellow" for their cases. Then again Apple has a trademark on rounded rectangles.
