RE: [wg-b] technical charter, no broader authority

dealing with consumer fraud, even if a trademark infringement, still rests
with other legal authorities. while we protect our brand, we rely on
regulators to protect consumers from fraud, and turn complaints over to
them.....we cooperate with legitimate law enforcement when they bring
consumer fraud to our attention, of course, as any responsible company
does... large or small. 

I'm not sure why Milton would think that a company should pursue consumer
fraud... other than trying to help prevent it...or perhaps that wasn't what
you meant, Milton.

Since trademark infringement is basically a form of consumer fraud, I think
can complete the syllogism.

Why the double standard?
