Anonymous writes: Dear Readers,

Some of you may have anticipated this development after the recent events at MangaStream, but we are sad to report that Red Hawk Scanlations has received a DMCA notice of copyright infringement from Shueisha with regard to the Bakuman and Beelzebub series. We have no desire to pick legal battles, so we have removed the series in question from our servers and will no longer be providing access to them via our site effective immediately.

However, aggregate sites will undoubtedly continue to distribute material as they please, independent of our actions here. The act of editing manga itself is not illegal, and we have no control over what is distributed on other servers. Meanwhile the Red Hawk site will continue to serve as a hub for updates and discussion as we continue to pursue our passions without engaging in the illegal distribution of these series.

In short, these series are not dropped, but they will not be found on our servers.

Sincerely,
Red Hawk Scanlations

Ridiculous....
Just admit that you're not dropping it because you're making money.

MangaStream at least had the guts to respect the publisher.
You're just sc*m.

i think,that is because batoto will give (more) money to them,than mangahere/fox will.If batoto refused to give them money,they would be "singing different song".

i love all work they do... but i didn't expect something like this at the very bottom of mangafox's main page that list the affiliates: (why, i don't understand with dragon and fly?) since when did RHS become part of the MF, just like Dragon and Fly? how much money is RHS getting from MF?

RHS is already getting paid by Mangafox/NOEZ. They don't give a damn about Batoto.
Their initial post actually was like this:
"However, aggregate sites like Batotowill undoubtedly continue to distribute material as they please,"

They just want to put it on an online reader. Mainly for the people who don't want to download or don't want to mess with IRC (or don't want to learn how to work with XDCC lists or bots). And that is probably a good move by them as it eases legal pressure against them some.

Thank you Red Hawk. You are doing a great service for your readers.

And a LOT of groups are having problems with Mangafox and it's associates, so best not to bring that into here. You'll find a lot of groups switching to batoto. Best to keep discussions about that on another thread.

I doubt RH is making a ton of money from what they do. And whatever they do make, goes to raws and server costs. They are not like MangaFox that makes thousands every week. What pisses me off is that MangaFox and it's associate sites are still running strong. MangaFox needs to go.

RHS is making a lot of money for sure from the monthtly payment that MangaFox is giving them as an affliation (see RHS listed at the bottom of Mangafox main page). we already know that MF tried to offer Manga-Heaven ~$100 a week , for a small group like Manga Heaven... (which gave MF the finger). who knows how much of a payoff RHS is getting from MF.

Mediafire, they won't get much, zero except if they own the host.

I think they meant Mangafox (an online reader), not Mediafire.
