"Obama Swag- Buyer Beware"

Have you found it a bit surreal the amount of Obama Swag that people are producing in order to gain some profit off of our newest president? I've seen a plethora of mugs, mouse pads & T-shirts in recent months and wondered how it could be legal to use the brand and logo of the president for profit. So I went to the Internet for answers and found an interesting article at http://www.time.com/ (click the image to read the article) that helped shed some light on the brand issue. Of course, there is an actual presidential seal and it's only allowed to be used legally for and by the presidential office for official presidential trinkets. All other swag is just a knock off, so beware if your investing in a piece of memorabilia that you hope will hold some value over time as a collectible.
