I've been thinking about this over the past couple of days. I believe Ron Paul when he says he didn't read all the newsletters using his name, and that when he did read them that he never read anything offensive, and that he has disavowed any connection with these newsletters. I don't really care how much money he made on the newsletters. What troubles me is that he allowed some third party to use his name to promote a product and he didn't assert any control over how his name was used. It's kind of like owning a trademark. Would you allow someone else to use your trademark, even if you were getting paid for allowing the use of your trademark without having some sort of controls over how that trademark was used? In my view this is stupidity. This is not the kind of judgment I want my President to show. If Ron Paul were President, I wonder how vigorously he would instruct the U.S. Patent & Trademark office and Customs to enforce intellectual property rights?
