The first two-thirds of this video is a story about a fundamental misunderstanding about what intellectual property is, in the sense of intellectual property that can legally “protected” (i.e., monopolized). Were these guys under a misunderstanding, or did they try to play on the misunderstanding of others? Ultimately some appropriately rude treatment by the Trademark Office burst their bubble.

The last third of the video just demonstrates that jerks will be jerks.
