I just called my broker and had him sell my Pepsi stock, but I'm still interested in knowing if that makes me a parasite or not. Smiley

this is an abstract demonstration of the Truthful Speech aspect of Doolittle's philosophy. (contracts)

Confused? 
No I'm not. Fraud is fraud. Let the courts decide who committed fraud and who didn't.

Coke may be liable for selling their inferior product to vendors and telling them to label it as Pepsi so people will buy it, thus convincing people that Pepsi is crap and they should buy Mountain Dew. Smiley

No -you missed the whole concept.  Coca-Cola was not selling anything to anyone.  Neither was Pepsi.

A VENDOR was selling soda LABELLED as PEPSI, but in fact it was Coke.

Jeff, you sold your Pepsi stock for no reason.

So the stuff the vendor was selling wasn't even Coke?

Time will tell if it was a good decision or not. I bought more Miller stock!

No - the vendor WAS selling Coke.  But he re-labeled the Coke bottles PEPSI.  The vendor misled the people who bought his sodas into thinking they were getting PEPSI.

So both Pepsi and Coca-Cola have standing to sue the vendor. 

That's why propertarianism applies to this scenario.

How has Coke been harmed?

Because the vendor convinced his customers Pepsi was better than Coke?

I bet they already thought that, and wondered why the Pepsi that vendor was selling tasted like crap. Smiley

Coca-Cola has damages  because they lost a (potential) sale of their product.  Mr. Sodabuyer didn't buy the (fake) Pepsi because he doesn't like Pepsi (for whatever reason), but he would have bought it had he known it was actually Coke.

You said the vendor was selling Coke. You maintain that Coke has a claim because even more Coke would have been sold if the vendor wouldn't have been calling it Pepsi? The vendor was an idiot acting against his own best interests?

That's certainly possible. What will Coke gain by suing the vendor? Their property rights in the name "Coke" will be protected but the vendor will no longer be selling Coke?

Edit: Are the temporary property rights in the name "Coke" actually eternal?
