I fear mangaupdates is not going to be around for long now. I always wondered what would end my manga addiction and I kind of have the feeling that I just saw the future. It's too bad that an incredible site like this can be bullied so easily. And I believe 100% that once the people who bullied them saw how easy it was, they will smell blood and go for the kill. It usually happens that way.

I really love this site but I guess there's always people out there destroying the nice things in life.

Why not create a separate thread for this so more people can see it before it's completely lost in the thread?

They cannot remove this site now because they do not offer links to websites that violate the DCMA order. Also, there is manga that is not licensed in America and I believe cannot be prohibited.

Annoying but I have all the scanlator groups websites saved in my bookmarks that I read from already. So just tell me when and who and I'll be okay.

There is some advice about how to fight DMCA:
http://www.durangobill.com/Fight_DMCA_Abuse.html

But you should contact a lawyer if its out of your budget then ask community for help. There has to be a good lawyer among us.

I like that you took the links down right away and then look for long term solution.

YOU WILL PULL THROUGH I HAVE FAITH IN YOU!

This website provides legal advice and media coverage to help websites hit with abusive DCMA notices. I suggest someone to contact them and tell them all this story. I could do it myself, if you want me. They fight abusive DCMA in courts, and public opinion likes them very much. They could blow this story up and scare your copyright troll.
They even fought PayPal and Amazon in the past, and they are not intimidated easily.
I know fighting back is not an option for you, but copywrong holders will eat your entire hand if you give them one finger, and someone should stand up to them.
Again, http://torrentfreak.com/ has very good legal advisers. Please consider at least informing them about this case. Socru.

aye but that still doesn't mean that you should take it by being silent. I like that your parents actually asked them and probably also got an answer. I'm asking if mangaupdates has done the same. We aren't told who asked for it just that it was told to them by mail. I've gotten a trillion mails telling me that I either won, they want to share or that I have to pay money to them. It doesn't mean that I do what they ask me to do. Instead I ask the question: "why?".

In this case I just wanna know if they redirected the whoever sent them that mail to NOEZ company or mangareader...if you remove the online readers then 90% of the availability of the manga on the internet will be gone. Instead of just asking them, it's better to put them in jail to make an example of them. The scanlation groups themselves aren't really earning as much and they aren't all over the place making everything available to everyone.

Also let's not forget Google. When you do a search on a manga or just write manga then the first 50 searches (at least) are mangafox, mangahere, mangareader, and so on...
They are actually distributing information about these illegal sites but are Google being stopped in doing that? Noooo, only mangaupdates are going to get the axe...

So whichever idiot is doing this, he's doing it wrong. Go through the right channels to stop this...not through something that makes people seek manga through Google and help those online readers earn money.

I still think this is legally unjust. What organization filed, the dmca? Legally speaking you have a right to know whom filed the dmca against you, you have the right to counter appeal as manga updates is not a search engine among other arguments you could make, you also have the right to know what organization is having another organization file agaist you--literally you can say the freezing of assets is a violation of due process if the legal company did not read you ur civil maranda rights.

So i ask again what organization filed it?



Also i am really pissed you guy took away both especailly b/c less than 30% of the internet population use twitter and facebook. This due to cultural differencrs and the changes in availability of social media to the world. (Its become less socially available not more in the last 5 years.
,,

I feel like loosing links spells the death of mu,, q-q Q -Q
