    The most expedient way to go about a copyright infringement allegation is for the infringed to sue the infringer in court and either prevail and get a pile of money, or not and skulk away to lick his wounds. Law enforcement doesn't have to be involved at all, and certainly not the DHS. If they have time for that sort of crap, then either they're not doing their job, or else they have too many agents with nothing worthwhile to do.

    Unlicensed use of a baseball team may be on your significant other's privates. It is totally acceptable f it is the Washington Redskins. However we need to do a full inspection. Legislation is currently at the senate to promote "Panty Checks" by foot patrols.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    I am thinking DHS is not doing it true job and need to be disbanded or at least down sized. What do you all think of these easily joke about news article. What your opinions about Homeland Security. (You might as well get the butt jokes behind you, these incident is just asking for it).

    DHS is a vast orgainization and a legitimate function of any government is to enforce trademark laws and other laws on intellectual property. One of their enforcement areas is intellectual property rights.

    The fact that the violator is a "small business" is not that material.

    Heck, why not:

    - approach the owner or CEO of the company where you work (providing that you are not self employed) and state that your company should renounce all trade marks and patents. Let me know what his / her response is.... .

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office under the Dept of Commerce enforces trademark and intellectual property violations as far as I know.... not DHS.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    in 2001-2002, i was a libertarian who opposed the patriot act and a new DHS agency. i was told by Republicans that the new powers would not be abused, and i was asked why i wanted to help the terrorists (well, actually, they asked "why do you want to help the terrorist?" they never could get the plural right on that for some reason.)

    welp, there you go. the patriot act is being used for whatever they want, we have an agency that records literally everything that happens electronically, and the DHS is raiding places to track down fake underwear.

    i am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

    Infinging on Copyrights is how terrorists fund their organizations. Think about those Calvin and Hobbs decals on all those cares and Calvin is pissing on something. Every time one of those Decals is bought, ISIS gets a little bit more money.

    You can refine anything in it's pure form to use for good or evil. This goes for everything, not just materials.
