What MicroMark is doing is also the Walmart way. Buy it cheaper off shore. So if you not going to buy from MicroMark you need to stop shopping at Walmart.

But you CAN patent an idea, even a simple one. Depositing material

original ideas have been granted patents. (For example, Verizon
-patented- the idea of using a phone number to look up an internet
address. Nevermind that this was totally unoriginal -- they got the
patent and used it to sue Vonage and other competitors.)
What would they copyright? The rivet spacing? You can't
copyright an idea.
