    I have been looking around on the internet about hot sauce. I have seen lawyers posting that it is ok to pour a brands hot sauce into a botlle, label it your own and sell it as long as you do not mention it. Is this correct? I just cant believe it!

    Where have you seen this mentioned? I don't believe that to be legal for a second and if anyone says it is, it's probably a joke or an example of exactly what's NOT legal. It sounds like an example made to illustrate a point about copyright and how it's legal as long as you don't get caught and nobody can tell. I'm curious where you got this information though.

    99% sure that's bullshit.

    Why would lawymakers randomly make an exception for spicy condiments when making copyright legislation?

    Well if I bought a pair a pair of nikes, sprayed them black and gold, and as long as I took all reference to nike from them, and called them shites, then i could sell them where i wanted. Your essentially using a third party product and reselling it. something that plenty members already do here, except they do online services, not bottles of sauce :)
