Can you post the DMCA?
This sounds excessive. Some of us here (not me) are lawyers and law students and would like a chance to peruse it.

Also how does linking to scanlators sites violate the DMCA? Furthermore why not just take down the links in the notice? Though rights holders may wish it does, the DMCA doesn't work that way.

Something doesn't seem right here.

Excuse me for the ignorance but besides the link to the scanlators and the irc link the website will continue to work normally? Cause I have all my manga stored in here with ratings and reviews and I would be devastated if something further occurs.

I'm surprised those aggregators haven't received a DMCA themselves.

Can you please post the source of DMCA and the DMCA itself i think the fans have the right to know since it effect all of us. I'm sure there is nothing about not "do not disclose this DMCA" is it does they are not following the proper legal system.

Sorry Panos, I have no clue.

This is all quite suspicious, they haven't even told us who the shady group who issued this extremely overreaching takedown notice is, and there's no legal reason why they can't.

I think MangaUpdates has been cowed and intimidated by aggressive legal posturing. The takedown submitters representative probably can't believe their great fortune in that it actually worked. Of course they're fine with removing all the links, they hadn't a leg to stand on to begin with.

I second this motion! not all groups have violated the DMCA and this may stifle scanlation largely. eek

Groups links dont violate DMCA since the copyright has nothing to do with links. The person who send the DMCA is one shady figure.

Bad news. Readers were visiting scanlators' sites less and less these past years anyway. I can't help but think how much illegal sites such as Mangafox, etc. are going to benefit from this.

I understand the "we can't afford to be sued" mentality here, but that doesn't mean MU has to be a glutton for legal harassment. I trust you did your homework before taking this decision.

In my opinion, whoever group's threatening to sue is overextending their hand. It might be a bogus claim.
