Look who owns the rights to!

Welcome to Why do I not own the rights to Well because the 100% Clean Comic who punches journalists in the face, Dan Nainan, decided to invest in my career! Yes, Dan Nainan believes in Omar Shaukat so much as a comic, that he purchased the rights to my website before even I could, and now he refuses to give it back to me.
