Let me outline my business model and when I finish, you can tell me whether I'm criminally insane.
I sell cookies. All over the world. They're good too. I scour the land looking for only the best cookie recipes. The best ones get made by us and sold. At first we made huge cookies (spreads hands apart to the size of a record album). They sold well, but there was a problem. They're too big. You couldn't bring them with you. You had to eat them at home. So we found a way to make them smaller (spreads hands apart to the size of a compact disc). And they taste even better. We needed to retool our whole cookie operation. So of course we had to charge a lot of money for the better tasting, smaller cookies. But we promised our customers that sooner or later, the prices would go down. But they never did. And now we make a fortune. Because it costs us a lot less to make these cookies than ever before. But before you complain, we need that money. We spend it on marketing. Because if we didn't advertise, you wouldn't know about our great cookies. From recipes we found.
But now a terrible thing has begun. People got the idea to trade cookie recipes. This allows them to make their own cookies. And that's bad. Because we found them first. And because if people make their own cookies, they won't buy any from us. Then we won't be able to market the great cookies we sell. Then we'd go bankrupt. So we have a solution. We're going to sue anyone who trades recipes. Because we can.
