scouts-l Mail Archive for November of 1999: When is a CSP?
Tue Nov 16 1999 - 11:28:23 CST
Ah! A philosophical question! Like, when a tree falls in the woods...?
Should a person within the Council have an opportunity to purchase it a
sew it on a shirt? Is that when it becomes a CSP?
Does it become a CSP when it is designed and ordered in limited edition
and then sold in quantities outside of the council it supposedly
Is it a CSP when persons with "inside" information order 15 or 30 or 60
and it shows up on eBay at a great mark-up?
Several months ago I noted whimsically that the National Capital Area
Council's National Scout Shop has a "Y2K" variant of the standard patch
with the Y2K in place of the trees to the right of the Jefferson
Now it's been confirmed that the Scout Shop ordered several other "Y2K"
variants, including a "ghost patch" and did quantity sales outside of
the NCAC. The SEC and Justice Department would have stockbrokers or
CEOs up on charges for similar insider trading.
What are your thoughts?
