The Boondocks by Aaron McGruder for May 05, 2016
Huey: I have a mathematics question. Teacher: Yes? Huey: Let's say a record label gives a new artist a six-figure advance against royalties, but that advance doesn't cover all the cost of making his CD, which he has to pay. Then they give the artist an 8 percent royalty, which doesn't allow him to cover the advance, leaving him bankrupt and enslaved to the record label even though they made a profit off his CD. Teacher: (sigh) yes? Huey: So my question is, how many tons of explosives should we use to blow up the RIAA when they say they're shutting down Napster to protect the artists' rights? Teacher: Ok. No more questions from Huey today...
