GPL killed the MPAA star

“Nothing of value is free. It is very easy, Mr. Chairman, to convince people that it is in their best interest to give away somebody else’s property for nothing, but even the most guileless among us know that this is a cave of illusion where commonsense is lured and then quietly strangled.”

– Jack Valenti, MPAA

“If you design your own machine, you can’t fuss at people, because you’re one of just a few. How many Linux users are there?”

– Jack Valenti, MPAA

Fuck you John Leach! I am starting to think about possibilities of making a new site humoring you for such a long delay for any new content.

UPDATE THIS BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be honest, I think the strip died at a good time. I know it was never EXCLUSIVELY about E. “S”. R, but he was the main focus, and he’s now got nothing to do with free software, or even “open source”, and hasn’t in a good long while. What would be the point of a comic-strip devoted to a man who is now nought but an unpaid Rush Limbaugh-wannabe? (Imagine volunteering to be a Rush Limbaugh for free! I mean, Rush gets paid to be a cunt!)
