    Always listen to what is said. Do not hear what you want to hear if it is not said.

    No, he doesn’t.
    IRL, there’s legal precedent for the Dudes to go back to the judge and say that the terms of the settlement were violated. In this case, they were led to believe that the property in question was something that it wasn’t, causing them to choose it instead of a cash payout.
    (A few years back, counter-cult authors Jerald & Sandra Tanner decided to post on their website an entire chapter of a manual printed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. However, the manual in question was copyrighted, and so when the Tanners ignored a cease-and-desist letter the church filed suit for intellectual property theft. The Tanners chose to settle it out of court, and as part of the settlement they took the chapter down.
    Within a year, however, the Tanners were hosting links to other websites that had the same copyrighted material and were bragging on their newsletter about how the material was back online. The church filed suit a second time, and the Tanners decided to fight it; the other websites were all hosted out of Australia, and so the Tanners banked on there being jurisdictional issues in their favor.
    Instead, the judge ruled that the Tanners had violated the spirit of their settlement by encouraging others to violate the church’s intellectual property rights. The Tanners got hit with a fairly massive fine and were ordered to remove the links.)

    ^Seriously, dude. It’s a comic strip. It’s focus is humor, not legal accuracy. Why would you bother? Also, what you forgot is that due diligence could (and should) have been conducted before agreeing to such a deal. See, Winklevoss Twins vs. Zuckerberg where they tried to argue Z failed to disclose information (that was actually available to them) when they agreed to their settlement. They lost because they had five lawyers and all anybody had to do was conduct due diligence. Fail. Take your multimillion dollar settlement and move on.
