At least the "pudgy myopic doritos scout" was being honest and doing
what scouts are supposed to (remember that Chevy kills the old lady,
or perhaps, more accurately, lets here die).
Hasn't the BSA trademarked and protected its uniform etc?
Just imagine how many Walmart and FritoLay lawyers would descend iupon
the scouting movement if we used thier product (or one just like it) to
do our promntions witou thier permission.
Have you heard that Wal mart initaited court action against an Nepaean Ontario
craft shop (mom and pop variety) that had been operating as "woolmart" (they
sell knitting stuff) since at least the early 70's, and Walmart has only
openmed its first stores here in Canada this past summer?
Let's take em to court, then we can run free camps on the millions they
will pay us for copyright infringement. Let's stop acting like a bunch
of boy scouts here (oops!) and stand up for our rights!
