Is that TP on your shoe?
Last night, over the phone, divalea amused me greately by reading me TokyoPoop's latest attempt at contract skullduggery. I love the bit where they don't have to credit you on your own work, should they deem it to be too inconvenient to do so. I also love how they still seem to own your ass even after your year-long "pact" has expired.
What distresses me though, is there there will always be a bumper crop of fresh-faced young'uns ready to swallow the "friendly language" bullshit (legalese exists for a reason, people) or worse, convince themselves that this kind of odious and rapacious behavior is just something to be tolerated in order to "make it" in comics.
But what are TP's execs doing as you struggle to "make it" on their
indentured servitude... er... ass-reaming contract... uh, pact? You can sure as hell bet they aren't sweating the electric bill or worrying about how to make two days worth of ramen last for three.
You know, TP and their Preacher's discount contracts are like like most internet trolls; if you ignore them they will eventually go away.
