>Japan has decided to beat France and the United Kingdom (both who have similar proposals) to become the first country to ban file sharers from the internet.
>Oddly the agreement to do so has not come from the Japanese Government, but from Japan’s four internet service provider organizations after pressure (not surprisingly) from the record and movie industries. According to Torrent Freak, the agreement would see copyright holders tracking down file-sharers on the Internet using “special detection software” and then notifying ISPs of alleged infringers. File sharers will initially receive a warning for a first offense, then be disconnected for subsequent offenses, eventually be disconnected from the internet permanently (it wasn’t clear whether the agreement is a three strikes proposal).
>The process will formally commence in April and will primarily target users of Winny, the most popular file sharing network in Japan.
Share and Old Winny have 100% encryption.
Good luck, Japan.
Fucking corporate idiots.
Time for file sharers to find a way around this.
It will just be an obstacle to get around.
So, LOL Japan?
DOES THIS MEAN NO RAWS????????
Winny and Share were the RAW Providers.
IN BEFORE FANSUB CRISIS
ITS OVER WERE FINISHED America will also follow soon
All this means is that the Winny and Share users will use Perfect Dark.
Ideally raws of anime wouldn't make their way to the internet. Fansubs and scanlations would die out and american (and hopefully british) companies will start releasing more and more anime and manga in response to improved sales.
And then I'd finally be able to buy all of the Patlabor manga in english...
But that isn't going to happen.
Perfect Dark >>> Share > * > Winny
The internees shall find a way. Hopefully.
what about uploading anime to places like megashare or whatever the hell its called, using a proxy?
You know those websites where you wait like 60 secs if you are a free user, and then download
All they need to do is get one raw out here in America and it will explode.
And there are numerous ways to do this undetected.
People freaking out are trolls.
Their crackdown on pirates will only lead to the rise of Ninja Pirates. They can't track what they can't see!
Guess I'll abandon animu and go back full time to the vidya
What about if they do it to other places like Usa and europe?
What is this special detection software they're talking about?
hacking your pc when they have your ip from bit torrent obviously
Shit will never work, there is always a way around .
I fail to see the problem. There's still the small matter of actually finding the people that are uploading, and if the rest of the entire world is any indication, the majority slips away simply because there is really no good way to catch large amounts of filesharers.
Just because they made a never-before-seen punishment doesn't make it anymore likely that they'll catch lots of people.
They wont. It'll cause such a uproar, even people who don't use file sharing programs will be up in arms. Europe is real big on the whole net neutrality thing. Except maybe Germany.
doesnt bother me, i have like 4 unsecured wireless networks i can deliberatly knock offline by downloading anime :D
Another good reason to nuke Japan again, amirite?
HACKERS ON STEROIDS.
just like hiroshima
And then where do we get our anime, amirite?
Oh yeah... Canada's already on that. But so far all they've done is Martin Mystery, Totally Spies and Team Galaxy.
No really, my street has a ton of unsecured networks, even if my isp was banned, I could just go on theirs and continue my normal internet usage
If that happens, France and the UK will follow suit. Then the entire EU, then the rest of the world.
Sounds more so like they're cracking down on music and movies rather than anime, but who knows.
haha yeah no
dont we get are raws from china/korea anyway?
It's all the same. "Anime" is no different from "movies" as far as anyone should be concerned.
What the issue is is that, can the people in Japan upload the anime RAWs without interference or being arrested?
And the answer is yes.
I don't use IRC, but is IRC considered file sharing, I know you can download stuff from it?
The thing is, they aren't concerned. MPAA and RIAA are on the loose, but no one cares about anime.
Oh, they shout out every couple of years about how they'll slit our throats, but nothing has ever happened.
This wont do shit, cappers switch to PD if they feel Share is unsecure, life goes on as usual in the RAW world.
Anon already said it, but anime is of low importance to the MPAA and RIAA.
>>10261480 But so far all they've done is Martin Mystery, Totally Spies and Team Galaxy.
However, this news is in regards to Japan itself and they assuredly do.
Japan is pissed because people don't wanna pay like 80 bucks for 2 anime episodes that they can download for free
It's times like these I thank god I live in Canada, land of legal filesharing and legal weed.
japan needs to get better programmers and make better p2p software
They already have.
When they start selling their shit for proper prices and not having them be shitty quality, then I shall I pay actual money for stuff like translated manga and anime.
But no loli porn for you. Enjoy your milk in bag.
Actually, most Japanese fans buy even if they download. But the distributors don't want people distributing their products for free and I don't imagine the studios don't either (after all, this is their livelihood we're talking about).
The control of intellectual property is always going to be contentious. People will always want free access but creators will always want compensation (and why not, they put their efforts into it). There has to be a happy medium somewhere, though.
I never knew Reboot was an anime.
Sounds like the same plan that the riaa and mpaa uses. and that works REAL well.
I have lots of loli on my computer, and I'm a canadian.
I don't see your point. Buying loli? Who the fuck buys porn?
Yeah, the remake is. It's called Gurren Lagann. You should watch it.
THIS WILL ONLY DRIVE US....down down deeper and down down down deeper and down down down deeper and down down down deeper and down down down deeper and down down down deeper and down down down deeper and down
Probably 10 percent buy lol.
I mean look at shows like Haruhi in america, if you consider all the fans that have watched the show, i've seen like over 50,000 downloads for some of the eps on some torrent sites, the dvd sales were what over 10,000 a volume? Lol
Japan is fucking stupid at pricing anime anyway
Because, they charge so much there, for literally fuck all episodes... its ridiculus
Nuke Japan again.
They JUST don't get it yet.
I hope it's just a bluff on the ISP's parts, and they don't really mean it.
Of course, they might have to catch a few people just to show an example.
The only thing that pisses me off is in the short term, this will lead to less jap seeds on torrents, who typically provide the best download rates.
That's because people cap their upload to 3kb/s
I mean on some torrents people were uploading over a 100kbs a sec from me and I was getting like 2 from them
>Ideally raws of anime wouldn't make their way to the internet. Fansubs and scanlations would die out...
And that would kill the American anime industry.
If it weren't for the fact that I can watch it on the internet for free, then I wouldn't buy any anime. The only anime I would own is Golgo 13 & Ninja Scroll, and nobody is making money off of those relics.
Stop the fansubbers and people stop watching the shows, don't know what they're about, and won't buy blindly. I don't buy any media blindly.
Unless I've already watched a movie, played a game, or seen a series, I won't buy it. I'll only spend money on that which I have already confirmed is worth me parting with the cash to get.
the anime indistry would be doing pretty swell even without the ones looking for obscure titles
Make that "good" titles. The amount of shit anime being released in the States is only topped by the amount of shit anime made in Japan. Simply because not all shit anime gets licensed.
Like the PC gaming industry?
And do not give me that "Piracy" crap, I had no problems in copying 3.5 disks and renting games in the old days ...
Anime has to be value, no questions asked
Dvds have to be affordable to anyone that wants to buy them, if they are old enough to watch.
Because if you can get something for oh 10 bucks, and said thing takes 12 hours to download, ild take the 10 buck route
HOLY SHIT I had that toy as a kid in China!
/r/ ninja pirates
Even if the Japanese somehow manage to suceed the Chinese would pick up the slack.
