00:00 - 00:05Let me lay it all out on the table for you!
00:05 - 00:07I was fappin one day and it came to me
00:07 - 00:10Why not just copy the Adlib soundcard...
00:11 - 00:16Make a few hardware changes around the guts
00:17 - 00:21and sell it for half as much!
00:21 - 00:24So we did
00:29 - 00:31we did!
00:31 - 00:34We cloned Adlib and resold it for half the price!
00:38 - 00:40we did!
00:41 - 00:47You know what the best part is though? We used the cheapest parts I could find
00:47 - 00:50copied the design with off the shelf parts from radio shack
00:50 - 00:56and it drove them completely out of business!
00:58 - 00:59totally out of business!
00:59 - 01:01they never saw it coming!
01:04 - 01:06You should have seen
01:06 - 01:08the look on their faces!
01:13 - 01:14because..
01:14 - 01:16The card was 100% compatible with Adlib
01:16 - 01:20so nobody bought theirs anymore.
01:21 - 01:27I was selling cards every four minutes to their own customers!
01:35 - 01:36Right beside their booth
01:36 - 01:39we sold right beside them! bankrupted them!
01:41 - 01:44Then I had an epiphany...if I could do this to Adlib
01:44 - 01:47 why not other companies too?
01:47 - 01:49I could copy all their designs
01:50 - 01:53and bankrupt them all!
01:54 - 01:56so I did
01:56 - 01:58I copied many other companies products
01:58 - 02:02and sold them as my own, making myself rich!
02:05 - 02:07and so...
02:10 - 02:11and then
02:11 - 02:13and then!
02:15 - 02:17when they complained that I copied them
02:17 - 02:20I took them to court and sued the pants off them!
02:21 - 02:28I told the Judge that they violated my patent rights, the stupid Judge bought it and I won everytime!
02:29 - 02:30Everytime?
02:30 - 02:32I won everytime!
02:36 - 02:39They then had to pay me for damages!
02:40 - 02:42and thats not even the best part...
02:50 - 02:55there was some small competition later on though
02:56 - 02:58you said had some competition?
02:58 - 03:04Some companies tried to compete with us with 3D audio, but they were really no threat by then
03:04 - 03:09I had so much money I just litigated them through the courts like before
03:09 - 03:11they never stood a chance
03:16 - 03:20bankrupted them all too!
03:23 - 03:26Then I bought out the dead companies for pennies
03:31 - 03:36I make all my money now suing others for patent infringment!
