This brings to mind a case here in Florida a few years ago where a 
person took some beach sand and tried to sell it on ebay.  Only 
problem is the sand, technically speaking, is owned by the state.  
Thus the person was selling a stolen product. I can't recall what 
trouble they got in except for the fact they could not sell the sand.
