Today at 12:50 AM What it was like in the 1990s by Jack Sim

Just for discussion purposes only. Saw something in a picture and it reminded me about something that happened at Turkey Run years ago.

Naturally, I was selling ECOs. Had one that was orange and black. Had a Harley decal on it, but it was only stuck on in a little place, it could easily be removed.

Up comes a 30s looking gentleman, wearing very nice jeans, didn't really look like a biker, just was dressed nicely.

Asked me about the Harley ECO. Than stated that it was never made by Harley, therefor was in violation of their trademarks. He told me to remove the decal, or to stop trying to sell the meter. I asked him who he was an he informed me he was a lawyer and employed by Harley. He preceded to open his binder and showed me an injunction or whatever it was to back up his request. I asked him, how was he going to enforce this request, he turned to the right and pointed to a Daytona police car, just down the row from me, and stated that if I didn't do as he requested, he would have them confiscate the meter.
Naturally, I not wanting to show him how smart I was, I just reached over and removed the Harley decal, therefore making the meter a early Phillips 66 meter (black and orange).

No particular reason for posting this, just wanted to have a little discussion while everyone is at Hershey.

Has anyone else ever been approached accusing you of copy write or patent infringement?

Yesterday at 05:31 PM This listing on Ebay is a classic!!! by Bbburke

261581694025. I saw this ebay posting and thought it was funny. Not so much that they describe the plastic sign as either glass or porcelain. But, more for the pictures of the guy doing yard work and then getting in the middle of the next picture.
