The Third Candidate

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

THE BOSS: Our third candidate: the Dark Lord of the RIAA.

THE BOSS (SCO): What is the meaning of this? The RIAA is not part of our industry.

THE BOSS (RIAA): But I will be.

G’OO’GL: Don’t be evil.

BINKY (STEVE): I’d be curious to know that myself.

THE BOSS (RIAA): Right now, as we speak, my minions in Congress are preparing to pass a law that will, indirectly, give the music and movie industries direct control of the Internet.

BINKY (STEVE): How does one indirectly gain direct control of the Internet?

THE BOSS (RIAA): By bringing more lawyers than the other guy.

BINKY (STEVE): Ah yes. I see your point.
