The robot's money was supposed to go to Ecosystems Unlimited. How was it to get to Mr. Kornada?
Ecosystems Unlimited is a conglomeration of divisions operating under a single banner. They have their own internal budgets and stock.
The safeguard program would move in a wave as robots linked to the dream machines. I would control which division would receive the funds, raising that stock price.
I will remind the jury this is an A.I. and legally not capable of insider trading. Mr. Kornada is lucky Clippy didn't succeed. Had Clippy shut down over ninety percent of the planet's economy, I doubt his fellow colonists would be interested in discussing legal technicalities.
