    Michael,
    Just because a few people are sued civilly doesn’t mean the laws are adequate. You should know better as a law prof…We still have organized crime groups yet it is illegal to be a part of an organized crime group…in that case, the law is not practical as the onus on the Crown is too great to prove association and membership and that there are crimes involved. So just because someone is sued, it doesn’t mean a law is adequate as you often say it is.

    I can definitely see where someone may mistake a painting of a bag for a real bag.

    Nap.
