  1. DanFromCT says:

    The licensing laws across almost all fields in all states are straightforward restraints of trade. The very idea these laws are enacted by the bought-and-paid-for whores in the fifty state legislatures to protect citizens is preposterous. Who’s got the patience for such pretenses at this point?

  2. anonymous[191] • Disclaimer says:

    Most jurisdictions in North America and Europe have something equivalent to the Professional Engineer PEng. designation which means you have passed a stringent test that satisfies a governing board that you have the qualifications to practice engineering in that field. The main purpose of this is so that you can be held legally accountable for yours or the designs of others if they turn out to cause things such as bridge collapse, fires etc. You are also considered to be an expert witness in your field in court. Legally any person can design anything they want, but if it’s something that could possibly cause damage to persons or property it’s advisable to get it checked over and certified by a PEng. or equivalent to cover the maker or importer of the device legally. Some libertarian types might consider such designations unnecessary but these laws are there because people have died in the past due to shoddy engineering designs. I don’t know the particulars of this case but Greg Mills might have a good case here if he has been working in the field designing and certifying products and all of a sudden he’s had the goalposts moved. He should be grandfathered into the new laws.
