Law, Unfair Competition laws help the consumer in a lot of ways.

The reason is, it is very easy to lie in advertising. But if someone lies too much, their competition find it easy to attack them under the law. Keeps a lot of BS out of print. A lot of BS.

From my point of view, where I've done a few Silicon Valley startups, getting hammered by the competition who lies in their promotions is very unfair. It can cost jobs, and even companies.

Think of it as a kind of Truth in Advertising protection (I know, if you believe all the BS the edit system manufacturers put out, you'd believe you could cut 'Gone with the Wind' on a $200 system!) that is policed by the industry in which the company plays.

Kind of off subject, but say you were to make a wedding video, for instance, and the Bride + Groom request a song to placed on the video, would it be copyright infringement if both you, the videographer, and the receving party both purchased the CD that holds the song. Or even the single. As far as owning the music under a different medium, that would be taken care of. Any reason this would not work?
