Although doesn't the fact that the genuine plates are solid legally raise the spectre of people affixing them to fake Rick-lookalike guitars and passing them off as real?
There's no legal basis for stopping the sale of genuine components, not that I'd want to anyway. But there's certainly a strong legal basis for stopping the sale of mis-branded instruments.

Theoretically the nameplate could be licensed by the company and never sold, just as the film companies did for movie posters and less similarly, the music you buy on CD's. But I don't see that too many problems have been solved by doing so.

If we were starting with a clean sheet of paper, I'd design a plate that's much more difficult and expensive to produce.
Ok, I know that this is getting kind of redundant, so many consecutive posts - But I'm pretty passionate about this. Please bear with me. To Mr. Hall - Please do exactly what you describe here. I'm an idea man. Contact me and I'll run a few ideas for this by you - FOR FREE! (try to get that from a paid consultant)

Nothing to fix at this point- the current policy is doing its job well.

Hey, I've got an idea: let's make up a totally fake story about how the TRC got destroyed. As if it happened to one of us. Best story wins something.

I've got an idea: How about the winner getting a TRC? lol. I'll come up with a real DOOZY for that!!!

Goodness!

All things of high quality rare and limited are orignally produced in very finite amounts.
This is one of the reason we purchase such products in the first place, apart from just the pure unbridled joy such high caliber products give to us.

I so wish I could replace my fine wine collection at the prices I originally paid for the bottles, but real world it just isn't so.

Once again I'm entirely grateful to a company who takes this isssue and it's policy regarding the TRC as seriously as it does.

Imagine my horror if I wound up with bogus bottles of 1982 Mouton Rothschild!
Just how sure are you that you haven't?

From dictionary.com:

beat/flog a dead horse

To continue to pursue a cause that has no hope of success.
To dwell tiresomely on a matter that has already been decided.
