As far as I know, a DMCA takedown request needs to provide specific links to be removed (that presumably point to copyrighted content). They can't possibly demand the takedown of all links to groups, without regard for whether those links contain anything copyrighted, and if they themselves hold tha ...


This whole case stinks. MU staff refuses to answer who issued takedown request, and its content. It's either gag order (I doubt it, not many companies have enough power to buy courts to do that), or MU staff is too scared to do anything.

I smell bullshit.

Don't worry guys.

Even asking mu to remove the links to the websites is pushing it. I doubt it would stand up in court. There's little to no chance they can do anything to shut this wonderful website down.

Would be nice if MU told us who sent the DMCA so we could go give them a piece of our mind. I bet it's Crunchuroll. With it's god awful translators.

How can linking to the page of the scans group violating DMCA? Somebody please write an essay about it
What's done is done, but this is just bullshit. Now more and more people will go to Mangafox or Online Readers to spare the hassle of google-ing for scans group's page. Nicely done.

Yes, works beautifully. You would have to manually add new groups or change address of existing ones but it still great to have this. Kudos for whoever solved the problem this quickly. smile

How do you get this to work? I usually use Chrome, but I also have Firefox on my computers and I'm unsure how to run this.

[Edit] Never mind, got it to work and it's great! Hopefully this can be continually updated as new groups are added and/or have their information updated.

On FF you have to install Greasemonkey plugin, and then install this script. That's it.

It may work for now, but it's not a viable long term solution since URLs are hard-coded.

So this is a question to the MODs...yes you too, lamb. Did you in any way reply back to mail you got? Like going: "That's totally cool that you come after us when we do not host anything and only provide information....kinda like piratebay but without any torrents or downloads. So we are less illegal than them. In return let me ask you: Do you go after mangareader, mangahere or mangafox who actually are earning money on having readers read on their online readers through ads? Mangafox is owned by someone called NOEZ in china, which is a company that later made counterfeitshop called Otakushop, three illegal online games: Pocket ninja, pocket pirate and some other new one which I don't remember? Probably not, you decided to let the criminals alone and go after us who are just giving people information. Please answer, and we will take the required step after giving a sensible answer on how you deal with the real criminals."
So did you? embarrassed

Anyway it's kinda cool. I'm not gonna make a twitter or facebook crap for my group...the users and the online readers can find it themselves. Kinda really tired of doing extra shit just cuz the leechers are too tired to do it like how we did it before mangaupdates and manganews and mangajouhou bigrazz

Anyway, it works fine for now. Crisis averted temporarily, though it's obviously not a long term solution unless the script is updated semi-regularly.

You can add/change sites yourself. Open it in notepad or something, and add at the end new line. Or you can change main script at site, so everyone just update with new file.
