    Someone needs to make a song of this to Styx, Grand Illusion.

    Any living person who registers his/her given name as a trademark is definitely suffering from delusion, if not from an outsized ego.

    Re:

    Thankfully, if they live in Britain, they can just get a super-injunction and that way they can protect their public/private lives and personal brand by suppressing any and all speech about them.

    And some say freedom is dead!

    Hey! I wrote this comic!

    And I demand to be paid! I generated the idea after all, everything else was just implementation and the real hard work... ;)

    Re:

    That's the cool thing about the Internet (as it is now), it lets anyone much more easily contribute.

    Outside the Internet the laws are intentionally set up so that you have to go through a govt imposed monopolistic gatekeeper to contribute and such gatekeepers ensure that they benefit the most from any contribution that anyone makes or else such contributions aren't broadcasted.

    Of course politicians are aggressively seeking to pass laws that effectively turn the Internet into what they have wrongfully turned everything outside the Internet into.

    Sorry Nina, but you just are not funny, or it appears that talented.

    I would love to find that amusing, even slighly, I really would, (just to save you embarrasment)..

    I tried, I really did..

    with such good 'seed' info, surly you could of come up with something funny in regard to a simple typo !!

    We'll keep trying, one day you might get funny, or talented.
    Not sure if it will be in drawing though...

    Don't worry, making fun of people with talent is easy for her, as she doesn't even pay her own rent in Manhattan.

    Great work, Nina

    Yet more evidence for Mike's arguments regarding the value of the conversation and how innovation and creativity are enhanced by it, not destroyed. Kudos to Rich for feeling flatterred rather claiming ownership.

    Re: Great work, Nina

    That's the thing that copyright maximalist doesn't understand. This didn't happen in a vacuum. It was serendipity. I made the mistake, Pitabred noticed it, and Nina made a comic out of it. How could anyone claim ownership? What other pleasing turn of events would happen if people didn't have to be afraid of being sued?

    Won't somebody please think of the lawyers! What happens if we suddenly live in a world where art can be created without lawyers? The horror!

    Coming from one lacking in any sort of talent, creativity, basic intelligence, common courtesy, or even the common sense to come out of a torrential downpour, I feel it safe to say that your comment is useless.

    Maybe, just maybe, you'll be relevant or insightful. Someday.

    Certainly more rewarding than to shilltards like you. Judging by the poor job you guys do here your payment seems to be quite poor as well. Not that you'd deserve any better
