Silly Self-Serving Laws

When a celebrity, especially a science-fiction writer, gets their name associated with a "Law" then it's almost certainly either trivial or wrong — e.g., Arthur C. Clarke's "Laws", Theodore Sturgeon's "Law", Jerry Pournelle's "Law". What's the point, other than self-promotion? (Hmmm, should I call this observation "Zimmermann's Law"?)
