On several occasions, a Jewish boy has placed a flyer about some neighborhood business or tzedaka foundation on my car windshield. Since I don't want the flyer there, is s/he "Masig G'vul" (losely translated as "overtaking the border or one's property"?

Are you asking if the boy is wrongfully misappropriating the space on your windshield that the flyer takes up? Is there precedent for the placement of a paper on real estate constituting a violation of this law? – WAF Jul 16 '14 at 16:11
@WAF - I believe that "masig g'vul" applies to property in general, not just real estate. I may be mistaken on that assumption. – DanF Jul 16 '14 at 16:13
If one is makpid put a sign in your car saying no soliciting on windshield,as for everyone else its a davar miut most ppl don't care they just throw it out without thinking – sam Jul 17 '14 at 3:11
