    There's at least one item that could go in both lists, if I'm not
    mistaken: governments, organizations, ACTA and the like do aim to
    fight *both* copyright violations and patent violations as
    "counterfeiting" offences, don't they?

This is an instance of the harm that is done by trying to generalize
about these laws.  In other words, it illustrates my point.
