well i disagree. i think it's neither right nor wrong! the bicycle is his family's brand. he created it. he financed it. he nurtured it. and eventually he also profitted by licensing it to others. i think that's referred to as 'commerce'. it would fail to meet this definition if a market ceased to exist. so there. nah nah, nah-nah nah. e-RICHIE taking ball. leaving playground
