Whoever makes the reagents is the one who should be on the hook if they don't work properly. And that speaks to the honesty of the researcher, I think. The companies can also request lot numbers and such to verify.
I understand your advocacy of the devil, but if the company says outright that non-authorized reagents won't be supported, what's the harm in at least telling us what they are? And if they are patented, let us know that, too. I don't think anybody' going to be making a buck off something if it's already patented. Plus, if you're working on something that is going to head into IP territory, you can at least know where the boundaries are...
