J's Chimes: War On Scanlations

With talks about losses incurred with the piracy of mangas through scanlations available at websites, Japanese and US manga publishers have come together with the aim of putting an end to illegal online distribution of mangas. This alliance includes many of the known publishers that delivers us the mangas in stores like tokyopop. Such copyright issues are thus put into action and are currently cracking down on much of the manga sites as we know of today... Publishers claimed that scanlations are main the cause of the industry woes. Another battle against anime is once again imminent with all the piracy and copyrighted issues going on as of date. Whether it would be good or bad no one is ever sure... But since it does affect our personal well-being of reading mangas for free, I guess only time will tell...
