Sounds a bit like what you hear on each and every flight ... all the security theater instructions.
When kids want to go on a ride at Disney World, they should have an FBI agent, a government agent and a Disney lawyer lined up in front of the entrance to give a stern 60 second unavoidable talk about how no-one must copy the ideas used on the ride, how much mum and dad will be fined if they do, and that their parents can go to prison if they violate Disney's copyright, after which their fixed stares turn into fake smiles and say "Enjoy the ride.". Then repeat this on every ride the children want to go on, whether they've heard it before or not.
It took me 70 minutes to clear a security point at PHL this week, made it to my flight with less than 5 minutes to spare. Hot enough that everyone was sweating even before they got nervous. The whole time, there was a TSA monitor blaring how important and helpful they are to national security. At one point I was certain it looked like a moment from "1984".
