sadly, the average American doesn't understand intellectual property and will always side with the violator. My favorite basketball team, the Clippers, learned this the hard way when they asked one of their biggest fans (who they had given free tickets for life to) to stop selling bootleg merchandise that infringed on their IP and he literally went crying to the media.
The fact is, I'd say Ron Paul has a right to his own name and certainly doesn't deserve to have bootleg merchandise with his name on it sold without his express permission. That's the issue here if I'm reading this correctly: they didn't get permission.
I don't play, I commission the league.
