Uh, then don't put presumably private designs into public media?

There are two choices:

1. Make a highly superior product, priced accordingly.
2. Make a competing product, priced accordingly.

But don't expect folks to pay big $$$ for something that isn't demonstratively superior or avoid something at a lessor price if it is the least bit similar.

FILL THE NEED, don't demand a tariff or protectorate system to generate false equivalence.
