This doesn't make any sense to me.....why target MU? like others have said, sites like MF are just going to profit more..Big Brother stay out of it!

this isn't going to stop me from continuing to use this site though, it's not like I don't know how to use google.

eek eek eek

F**k this s**t!!!

A fourth of what I've read depends on the links provided here damn it, because I read a lot of doujinshis, and you're going to go through hell if you try to find those doujinshis' scanlators' websites through google. I don't understand the legal procedures very well but can't there be like, an option for scanators to decide whether they want to publicise their websites or not? I'm sure a lot of scanlators would want, no, NEED such option, since big names probably won't be affected by this but what about new groups that haven't established a name for themselves yet? How are they supposed to advertise their works, and what the hell am I supposed to do now to visit 'young' scanlators when I don't even have any mean?

For those that think that admin is overreacting please read Can't blame them. But they surely could tell us who is the jackass that send that notice. If the one who send it have any legitimacy than we could only be silent. cry cry cry But if the one who send it is just a nobody.... then let hell be unleashed upon them. mad mad mad

Honestly, Not sure I will continue to use mangaupdates.

sorry. I could ask about what form the DMCA notice came to cow you into action. what exactly it took for you to effectively shut the site down.

Obviously this is a developing situation.

but your actions have removed any reason for me to visit this site.

so unless you do something by the time I check back in a few days I'm going to never visit again.

sorry. the sad thing is, I don't even think you got an actual notice. from WHO exactly?

Seriously?? Really??
can someone help me understand why this is happening but site like mangafox continue to exist?
i mean, if posting hyperlink to scanlation site is illegal and they ask to take it down, why online reader still standing?

Mangafox has its servers in China, which means it's not subject to US law and therefore the DMCA can't control it. Well, the only thing to be done is google the scanlator sites we read manga from and store the adresses to a favorites list. It's a bit more work but nothing we can't handle. The most important thing is that the reading lists and updates remain intact.

Copyright trolls? Who or what that is registered in the US have the legal right to send a DMCA notice for every single manga that exist on here? I can smell something rotten about this.

This is serious bullshit. There's no way a link to a scanlator's site would be an infringement. Sure, everything you want can still be found out there but this is just bothersome. You should remove all the links to the publishers sites as well, just to be on equal footing.

muh convenience. Oh well. I figured something like this when I noticed at least a few pages having no links.

That's totally retarded - removing links to sites and forums, but letting stay facebook and twitter where posted same links to manga. Why no making referral to some anonimisers then?
And MU wasn't good with links to begin with, and now it's only updates and catalog. Yes, updates and manga catalog is important, but finding those updates will be a pain in the ass, not to mention finding old releases. And you know it's only beginning.

Btw, batoto has links to scanlator sites as well so you can find them there easily. When will those fellows learn there's no way to control the internet...

Can't say this doesn't sound sketchy. Does DMCA really give copyright holders that much power? It's not like the MU is linking directly to the download pages.
