That's patent infringement. And it still requires material and machinery and a large startup expense to do. Intellectual property on the other hand can be copied and resold by anyone at no expense.

You own that 57, you can modify it, you can sell it, you can do whatever you want. But you can't make copies of it. You can build your own knockoffs, but you can't copy it.
