Judge The Ohio Supreme Court says bobbleheads arenít, legally, free giveaways

Recently, the Ohio Board of Taxation ruled that the Cincinnati Reds owed $88,000 in back sales taxes on promotional items the team purchased to give away to fans. Mostly bobbleheads. The Reds appealed that to the Ohio Supreme Court and, on Wednesday, the court gave the Reds a win in what ended up being a very interesting and entertaining legal opinion, with no shortage of baseball stuff in it. You can read it here.

I think this is a triumph for common sense. Nothing given by a corporation to which you pay money is free. It's merely included in the cost of other services.

So the bobbleheads? Not free, just paid for by the cost of the ticket. That "free" lightbulb the electric company provides? Not free, just included in the overhead costs of your utility. Etc.

FYI, the link inside your quote didn't work for me, although the one in the original article did.
