Believe it or not, but a lot of places and people receive notices because the higher-ups know that they will abide by them. It's like how my family is receiving calls from Wells Fargo literally every day, with them asking when we're going to pay the mortgage when it isn't due for another week, and then some even after we pay. On a few occasions, my parents have actually asked them "Why are you guys pestering us for money instead of going after the people who don't pay their mortgage, yet still live in the house?"

They send notices and pester a lot of people because they know that they will follow the rules.

Found a few others like this.

Appears it's this way for groups that had only forum link listed on mu. All of this has to be hand-corrected

Just to add my two cents. What actually comes up when you Google a release? It isn't a link to the scanlation group or the legitimate license holder. Rather it's pages and pages of links to the various manga aggregators. So... if this was a request from an actual license holder, this is doing the opposite of what they meant. Rather instead this only helps drive traffic to the manga aggregators.

M-U is probably the most comprehensive repository of historical series information out there, and I've thought for some time that it would be a great misfortune if it were lost. Is there any possibility of getting some kind of SQL dump and schema for the database? One simple solution to this issue is for someone to host this data outside the US.

I can't really fault B-U for doing this given that it's likely they do this without a budget, but it really hurts the utility of the site imho, and I don't think the draconian action taken was necessary. As noted by others, the DMCA has to identify specific infringing content. They could have disabled the links indicated.

No one was asking for support. I corrected the data that I could find. Thank you Google cache!
Few groups remain that didn't have site or forum link on mu.

If not for the online readers raking in the cash in full view of the original publishers, I doubt that this would have ever happened. The only thing the morons who targeted this site will achieve is to push more business their way, and I have to wonder if this was not the intended purpose, or are the servers of the notice just that blind?. I'll never read a scanlation on Mangafox, Mangahere or any of those scummy sites.

If you want to easily read new titles without letting streaming sites reap benefits from ads, use batch downloaders like Free Manga Downloader.

It's a tool, not a repository, so I doubt that's illegal.

It harms streaming sites, it harms translators, it is inconvenient... But hey, that's what everyone wanted, right?

If that's the case (which it likely is), then talk about hypocrisy in action.

actually this is the first site I know of (from ones that I visit) that's been targeted so I actually don't know that.I understand that sites like MF probably getting these notices as well but it's probably b/c of the profits that give them the capability to ignore them even under the threat of being sued. Still isn't it counter intuitive to target sites like MU?

But they are not linking to the offending material they are linking to the main sites which isn't illegal.
