Nothing can be done if it's legal, and you can't copyright a circuit design.
You can patent one, but it has to be sufficiently innovative to be given
a patent.

As you say, in the end, they lose respect, and perhaps business. I think
it will be the newer products like the BCF2k that they design themselves
that will eventually make or break them. (Assuming they fall into compliance
with US laws :-/ )
