then what the heck do you want? when mangastream dropped their projects on jump, you complain. and when rhs decided not to dropped their projects jump, you complain too, seriously WTF DO YOU WANT THEN?
mangastream got their pride held high, so they dropped them. and i respect that. it's a serious shit. few will do that.
but i respect rhs's guts for not dropping it also. they're playing with the authority here, the possibility of their ip being tracked and them being sent to jail after that is absolutely not zero.
in a logical thinking, any scanlation group is already playing in an illegal area of the business even before mangas start to get licensed. so why should they even bother to dropped their projects when the only problem is that the illegal part just been made obvious?

Well, scanlation was started to spread the word into non-japanese communities.
Thus if we speak of licensing it obvious means english licenses.
You wouldn't get started at all on scanlation if that's your reasoning.
But I would still stop if a japanese publisher or author contacts me.
Nothing happened so far, so I try to spread the love for manga... wait, what the fuck I'm saying here.
I'm just here to troll people.

Okay, I'm not a fan of either of those two groups, but I'm pretty sure I put watermarks on my releases too. Where's my fucking money?

Seriously, some of you people can not be satisfied. And really shut the hell up because you know damn well you will end up reading their scanlations. Now will you get it directly from them or their hosts? Maybe not but you'll probably end up reading them on online readers whether you know it or not. &when you get slow releases or find out your precious series has been dropped you'll bitch about it again. And who gives if they get a profit or not? Sure it may be illegal but your just reading their scanlations, they are offering you a service and your taking it. And if they do get in trouble, it is their issue. Your only problem will be you can't get your leecher hands on your next chapter.

Oh please... As if it matters wether it's the english licensor or the japanese. Same shit. Plus... english publishers are mostly dead ever since the fall of tokyopop. About 2-3 are left... not that many. If the author himself would send me a mail and ask me to stop doing his work i'd probably stop. But publishers are the middle man... i don't give a damn about what they want. You are indeed a troll-tard-wannabe... and a hypocrite to top it off. D: Discussion over.

some of us just like to add fuel to the fire and keep the discussion going.
I mean, what else are we going to do waiting for the next raw and/or scanlation to hit the net?
I know, I'll watch commie sub's release on youtube becuse it doesn't matter where I watch it. and youtube have all the animes i need. and you know what? commie sub will not bitch about it. because they don't care where i get my anime from.

I have to agree... with Ichibukai, since piracy also works as means of protest, you have to stick it up to the man if you're going to make a point.

Granted, these guys will back out once the law's right at their front door, yet I admire their determination to take on every alternative out there, while others would just straight pack up and quit.

If they're lying about how much they make, then they'll come 'round eventually.

Got tired of that old record, so scratched he keeps saying the same things regardless of topic.

Not that there isn't anything wrong with that, but... meh, it does get old.

Do you even realize what you're saying?
"while others would just straight pack up and quit."
What the?
So if you rob a supermarket in real life and a witness tells you he would report you to the police if you don't stop, you would just go to the next town and start robbing stuff there?
Good job....

Topics such as this are the only reason I'm still in the community.
Nothing more entertaining than trolling readers~

If these guys get sued for real, do they really think this trick will cover their asses? They'll be laughed out of any court with this defense.

pssshhh they can't! Beelze is good, baku...well I dun care...

But does this mean that beelze got licensed? Damn you scanlation, you hiding licensed series from me! lololol

btw I read some article about that if they found it on a server somewhere....that means irc bot too...then they would sue the botowner, serverover, siteowner etc...through ACTA. Sound cool eh? xD
