Actually, there are manwha translated to Chinese in Malaysia (: (I don't read the BM ones, so I don't know). Just drop by Kinokuniya and you'll see quite a few or you can always just order.

I don't read scanlations from SM or Meep, but it's always shocking to see scanlators closing down or get closed down.

It's sad(even though I don't read any of their projects) but it's to be expected. The more visibility you get, the higher the risks of getting a C & D like Snoopycool and other groups have received.

Also, does this mean that most or all of their projects were from the same publisher? If so, then I understand why they closed.

Oh and about ShoujoMagic, sad I see... then again, when one of the main founders disappears along with almost all the staff, there's little to be done about it.

Like naturalrice said, it was from someone with apparently no official authority.. however, he reported them to the Korean council. Ask Yuumei if the group is still going.

Oh yeah, and I would like to emphasize and reiterate lamb's last point. I finally got around to trudging through the couple of pages of text for international copyright law and the links to the Universal Copyright Convention, the Berne convention, and the WIPO. Almost all the countries (at least, the majority of the one represented by scanlators) have signed on board the Berne Convention (which made the UCC obsolete once the United States conceded to join Berne) and that means automatically all countries who are members of the convention will uphold each other's copyrights, basically. The author's right to designate who may translate his/her work is a part of that copyright. So all scanlation, and even translation is illegal (in those member countries... which is basically almost all of them).

Ugh. Should have remembered to add this to the above. Sorry for so many comments. EVEN IF THE AUTHOR DIED, you have to realize the copyrights are still valid for up to FIFTY YEARS after the author's death for literary works under Berne.

Im gonna make this out worse than it is, so faint of heart should look away biggrin

Wow... Just... Wow... Ppl are in trouble and are forced to shut down, and you dont even give a *hit about it. "WHAT ABOUT AFLAME INFERNO? WUT ABT IMMORTAL REGIS?!?!?" Why not "What about the members of meep?" "What about the owner of the domains?" You guys are fuckin selfish, Get the fuck out of your mothers basement and get out in the world.

End of Abusive message.

Oh a happier note, Im sure some people will anonymously release them after a while. And if push comes to shove, im sure you guys(Being the ppl who bitch and complain, yet keep their hands "clean") Will get off your asses and do it after a while

It was a C&D. Uh, sorta.

Weird Korean law that anyone can speak up for a company if it's about legal procedures or some shit...

Sorry, lost the exact thing. -_- But yes the faggy korean kid that sent the letter was representing Daiwon, and has every right to.

well I agree so much with you onizuka ! I was thinking : what about the members of meep ?!! but after I thought.... I wanna add that... there was really one person in this group who really made it possible and worked hard (this person made sure the scanlation was good enough for all of us fan!!)... but some others were lazy and not so reliable and he had to work and redo so many times !! maybe it is not so bad the group shut down if you think about it @_@ one person working so much for the benefit of the whole group all the time@_@ no way ! ... well as a fan of course I am sad the group shut down ! i was like WTH what is happening to them?!!!! but still !!!!!!! T_T I know I am harsh ... but knowing this I can't just keep quiet anymore@_@
I just wanted to say in the end thankssss for the hard work !!! smile

Is a shame v_v

But life goes on and some Shadowy releases should be enough.

PS: No it won't be in mangatraders anymore, so grab your Hard drive and start to download cause all those chapies are going to disappear of Popular download sites... just give it a few months

Dude.. I'm not trying to start a freaking war over this copyright stuff... but we do realize it's illegal, I am not providing any more information over our group... It is LEGAL for a person to report and give out warnings about stuff like this and we understand he is a good semaritan for doing so. I am, however, very ticked about this matter.
