THE BOSS: Why do these web cartoonists spurn my new webcomic economic model?
ALICE: Well, the really successful ones don’t like the Artist Agreement, and they find your business model insulting. The less successful ones don’t mind the Artist Agreement, but they don’t think your business model will work. The Critics are on the fence about the Artist Agreement, and on the fence about the business model, and the Internet Trolls like the Artist Agreement but they find the business model very threatening.
THE BOSS: Alter our model so that Internet Trolls who help drive traffic to our product will get a cut of the revenue.
ALICE: The Trolls are in.
THE BOSS: Excellent.
