But there is no legal precedent to patents. I think a good legal argument can be made that the First Sale Doctrine should apply to lawfully traded goods which are under patent.
I don't even list my employer on my FB profile.
My vocation is listed as "Professional Crash Test Dummy"
My employer is listed as "I work at an office"

Likely the maximum that the FCC can fine the company. The NHTSA is another agency that was hampered with petty maximum fines, until the DoJ stepped in with a wire fraud criminal lawsuit that resulted in far stiffer penalties. "Cramming" could very well constitute wire fraud.
