Well, that's true. And this is one big factor why so many white collar
criminals are sent to jail every week (but you hear about them only when
Martha Stewart or someone famous is involved). This is particularly true
when the "product" also means "company."

But as far as I know TK is not trying to be a corporate exec or anything
like that. He is merely trying to sell some PDF's for the price of a
lunch and to me that doesn't seem to require bending of physics and
cheapening of good craftsmanship standard. (First of all photography is
a wrong field to make money anyway.)
