Alex Explains Hardware Licensing

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

CUSTOMER: Well, I guess I'll have to take it somewhere else to be fixed.

ALEX: You can't. When you opened the box, you were immediately bound by our End User License Agreement: you must use us as your vendor, you free us from any and all liability, and you may not disclose the nature of this agreement for any reason.

CUSTOMER: I did?

ALEX: You did.

CUSTOMER: And this is legal?

ALEX: So far.
