look on ANN and you will find in their logs, resent entry's about A legal online manga reader in the works its will allow for scanlators to work on projects legally. that's about all i know about 100%

again i am 17 and a leecher. (i will contribute when in collage probably as a translator, but as of now i just collect store it and contribute when i find nessisery)

the site will start with only yaoi material to establish a fanbase before moving on.

I just wonder why the publisher can force MangaToshokan to remove their manga but they don't or can't do the same thing to Mangafox and Onemanga?

AFAIK Mangatoshokan haven't received any C&D letter after the one they received back in June.
But they consulted a lawer and he advised them to remove all manga from publisher in the coalition and they followed that advice.

It makes sense. Thanks. It sounds kinda lame but it's really a legal thing to do I guess.

Screw the publishers, if they didn't take so damn long to get the manga over here then it wouldn't be a problem. Also they have never tried to work with the scanlator's or even tried different options such as paying scalator's to work on the latest issue then to put it online.

This is like trying to put your thumb over a hole in a dam, it's not going to stop the flood. No matter what, people will find away around it.

That is a good idea and one they should have begun years ago. Weird they are starting with Yaoi though, since I didn't think that it had a huge overseas market.

Seriously, this is making me mad.
They don't realize that no matter what they do we're still going to find ways to read it online, because American publishing companies are so damned slow. I buy manga whenever I have the money to do so, it doesn't matter if I've read it online or not already, if I like the series enough of course I'll buy it.

You know, in a way, sites that host manga scanlations are sort of like libraries.
We don't have to pay to read it, but if we like the book enough we buy our own copy of it.
So taking away manga from those sites is sort of like taking away libraries.. right?
Besides, we could even read the published manga at the bookstore and not even buy it either.

I'm sick of having to look for new sites to read manga already.

I just hope that it stops with the Online Readers. I only use them when I am away from my computer. Since I've been following scanlations since 2001 or so, I remember using irc and torrents more than hosting sites and readers. It might be a little more inconvenient to go back, but I don't mind too much.

Isn't Naruto Fan the only one actually guilty of selling unauthorized manga?

Ah, that's true! As I can find DLs for them (like I've been doing for Kuroshitsuji), I won't mind it too much. o:
