The Perils of Intellectual Monopolies, Part 6574

Ever drawn a car? Be careful, they might arrest you for copyright infringement:

Keene Valley resident Jerilea Zempel was detained at the U.S. border this summer because she had a drawing of a sport-utility vehicle in her sketchbook.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers told Zempel they suspected her of copyright infringement.

Now, tell me again why you like intellectual monopolies so much?
