"Brandon's Law" is the convention that each individual that consumes a good(s) or service(s) - regardless of whether it constitutes active or passive usage - bears full responsibility of the cost(s) and/or monetary expense(s) associated with consumption of that particular good(s) or service(s). It is attributed to Brandon Patel, undergraduate student and part-time researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
"Because of Brandon's Law, I now have to pay the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) the necessary royalties for humming the tune to 'Li'l Jon feat. Ice Cube - Real Nigga Roll Call' during my flight to Los Angeles two months ago."
