To take a more common example - start producing a soda using Coke's logo and see how far you get. Doing this deliberately is close to fraud as well.

Just because you're an admin, it doesn't automatically mean every command is run with admin permissions. This is similar to trying to delete something from the Applications folder. It'll prompt for your password. This is effectively the same as what the terminal is doing. Running with sudo, as per my other comment, gives it the privileges it needs.

First time you sudo you'll get a message telling you to be careful - this is normal. Enter your normal user password. sudo runs commands with elevated priviledges.
