Incidental Commerce

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

SALES REPRESENTATIVE: You want us to make it easier for you to harass our customers?

ALICE: Not harass... "inquire." We feel they may not realize they are potentially violating Ubersoft's license, and we want the opportunity to warn them of the dangers involved and what steps they need to take to avoid breaking the law.

SALES REPRESENTATIVE: And you expect us to just hand these names and addresses over?

ALICE: Not at all! We realize you would be sharing confidential information with us, and we are quite prepared to make it worth your while.

SALES REPRESENTATIVE: So you want to bribe us.

ALICE: We prefer to call it "incidental commerce."
