Make some add-on for browsers which will add links for sites on client PC. Like

Couldn't agree more. This whole thing seems fishy to me and will push away scanlators from this site. And why won't the website name won't be displayed anywhere and instead just delete the link. Either they were conned hard or bribed to act this way.

I Just started to work on solution for "Group Links Removed" problem only:

On Release page, it adds LINK next to group link that does Google search for you in new page.
I came up with this in like 5 min. It works for Opera as User JavaScript.

// ==UserScript==
// @name Add Group Links
// @include http://www.mangaupdates.com/releases.html*
// ==/UserScript==

(function (){

for (var i = 0; document.links[i]; i++)
{
if (document.links[i].title == 'Group Info')
{
// change the link
var a = document.createElement('a');
a.title = document.links[i].innerHTML + "Link";
a.innerText = "LINK";
a.target = "_blank";
a.href = "http://www.google.com/search?q=" + encodeURIComponent(document.links[i].innerHTML +" manga group");
document.links[i].parentNode.appendChild(document.createTextNo de (" "));
document.links[i].parentNode.appendChild(a);
}
}

})()

You guys who said 'I will not visit MU anymore and will visit website X instead' are pretty much listing possible suspects o_O

Until mangaupdates continues to maintain it's database and refresh the releases nothing is lost. If we can see which group released what, we can track the group trough 1 or 2 steps with a search engine.

Well, that's the issue, linking to the homepage of a scanlator group is as much copyright infringement as linking to Google or even The Pirate Bay homepage. Whoever sent that DMCA notice couldn't hold their ground in any serious law abiding court.
Now, if it was a link (hot, hyper or magnet linking etc) directly to an infringing file that's obviously different.

Why even bother going on?
All hope is lost.
MU was our last fortress.

Or we just go to the superior Mangafox.
Saves you the 1-2 steps to search in google.
Much more convenient.

You are right, if you want missing pages, broken links, out of order pages, pop-up screens for who knows what.

>2013
>still getting pop-ups

Oh boy...
It certainly isnt bad as you make it out to be.

Anyway, we have no other choice but to rely on big online readers like Mangafox/Mangahere etc,
because of their "I dont give a fuck" policy of DMCA.

And then what-wait a few months till they remove releases tab altogether because they will get another notice?
MU is at fault here since they allowed to get bullied for no reason.
Show me the law where hot-linking other sites is forbidden.This is retarded and even guys who sent DMCA know it.

i don't use ad blockers or any addons in my browsers so yeah sometimes i get those things. And you got it right, they don't give a damn about that.

@ Kitsame, now that DMCA i want to read, because they don't have any justified reason now. They could have only the "linking" to sites as a reason, but they lost that. This forum dosent provide anything else now. Searching i only found DMCA letter against Mangaupdates.org

A user up above linked to an FAQ that explains why hyperlinking can be illegal. Go read it.
