It's their advertising that is horribly flawed and a blatant misleading lie. At least that's how I interpret their advertising (possibly because I can pick them blind ).
As has been pointed out earlier. It's one thing to say that a lock is pick resistant, and a completely different thing to say that it is entirely pick proof. It's those words that strike a nerve with a lot of people.
The Internet Way Back Machine is a fun place to look at manufacturer's website claims over the years..
Here's Medeco, already in 1998 (before all of us came along, lol) saying their locks were "virtually" pick proof: http://web.archive.org/web/199802201304 ... edeco.com/
Here's BiLock USA in 1996 saying "high pick resistance" http://web.archive.org/web/199612300952 ... ilock.com/
Enjoy poking around the different snapshots of manufacturer's web sites,
