there's a chance that 4chan might become "repostchan"
that would suck hard
WHY HELLO THAR 2 WEEKS AGO
also, the p2p japanese programs have uber hax encryption levels.
they've all been broken so far except for Perfect Dark which is fairly new.
source on pic?

>4chan might become "repostchan"
4chan already IS repostchan
first lolis and now this?
WTF will become of the internet without lolis and file sharing?
So, business as usual
you say it as tho 4chan isn't already mostly reposts of reposted reposts
but those are normal-ish tits!
no matter how many times I read this I just dont see how this is going to affect fansubs. Most of the raw suppliers for these groups are using less than public means to transfer their raw to the group. This will disconnect japanese users who get caught sharing files, not the suppliers to groups.
wouldn't american eventually follow suit? unless our isps are more worried about losing customers to care....
WHAT ABOUT MAH SPICE AND WOLF SEASON 2
Proposals like this one just make me laugh. There is no way this can work from a practical standpoint. Think about it. Internet subscribers are paying customers of the ISPs. There is no way the ISPs are going to be excessively aggressive since it only hurts them in the long run both in reputation (hurt by angry users) and in the pocket book…
So what happens then? The copyright owners are going to eventually want everyone who’s file sharing to get punished, and once the large fish are taken care of, then comes the masses. How many customers do you think an ISP is going to axe before they say, hold on a second, we are getting hammered here…
It’s a direct conflict of interest. Sure, it may allow the ISPs to say “Look, we are trying hard” but in reality they don’t really want file sharing to stop, it’s their bread and butter…
It has already begun.
There is no season 2.
It's not that hard to share files. There's about five bazillion ways to do it.
How will fansubbers sub any more animu? Buy the DVDs, import them, rip them, sub them and then upload them to the internet?
Thanks Japan, my interest in your shitty culture and anime will finally begin to fade. And it's Japan's own fault.
My first experience with a chocobanana?
When the ISP's begin to lose and axe customers by the masses they'll say, "OH SHI WE'RE LOSING A LOT OF CUSTOMERS HERE...."
Shit. There goes my JAV.
What if Mr. Uploader just uses a proxy to upload his animu? What then?
THERE'D BETTER BE NIGGER
Dude you are too naive. Just look at the Odex saga in Singapore.
It's no more about the ISPs doing busines when the authorities step in.
This is incorrect. Most fansub groups use WinNY and/or Share to get their raws. Only a select few groups actually know a guy in moonland that will cap shows for them. So fansubbers are indirectly affected as the raw choice will plummet. There will always be someone out there who continues uploading raws though, so all is not lost.
>be disconnected from the internet permanently
WTF is that shit? You don't get the death penalty for getting caught shoplifting 3 times. Why is the punishment WORSE for sharing?
This isn't equivalent. You'd probably get serious jailtime for shoplifting after being caught three times.
The equivalent would be getting banned from the store, except there's only one store and it has a lot of stuff.
Guess you never heard of Comcast...
the girl with the A-Cup can give a deep throat. Blond bitch of Eiken.
I have no reason to use the internet anymore once all this shit kicks into full gear. Guess I'll just work and sleep from now on.
Another example of lobbyists and media corporations trying to suppress the natural evolution of technology.
Today they cry about filesharing. before they were saying it was the apocalypse when people figured out that they could record movies with dual VCRs or music with dual-casette tape decks. Then they complained about recordable CDs and started all this DRM BS.
History paints them as luddites.
Here's a tip. Encrypt your torrents and don't download say, 10 to 20 anime a day.
it's time to lighten the mood
Shit is gonna get banned too. UNICEF NO LIEK TEH LOLIS
Get Charter Communications. They don't give a fuck what you download just as long as you're a customer.
porn would lose many monies
so, um, do these services operate in Japan?
I got the gist from the article that they were banning Japanese filesharers, not Americans sharing Japanese files.
Comcast is American, but they limit torrent speeds, IIRC.
It was in response to Odex going batshit insane and gathering IP addresses to those downloading animu.
even if all this shit happens, haruhi will come over the internets, no matter what, for she is God.
Except media corporations need to make money. If everyone starts getting their products for free, they have no profit. And noprofit, no new shows.
Eventually, we're completely fucked. There needs to be a balance between those who buy, and those who steal.
American isps actually love fileshares, it raises demand for highspeed service, at one point some isps actually blocked ip ranges belonging to the RIAA.
oh yeah... that... I've noticed.
the one upside to my shitty wireless is that usually my used bandwidth stays too low to ping Communistcast's rage.
Jesus protects me from evil corporations.
THIS LAW WILL BE PASSED SOMETIME APRIL. SHARE, WINNY AND RECENTLY PERFECT DARK HAVE ALREADY BEEN COMPROMISED. (Winny and Share were over a year ago)
Do you think the Feds care about some overworked ronery Anonymous downloading animu in a redneck podunk town where the word anime is greeted with confusion and something like, "Ahnamay? Hurr, what you talking about man? hurrrr hurrr"?
There will have to be a backlash. There's just gotta be one.
This is in regards to Japanese ISP's. If Japanese ISP's manage to kill Japanese P2P networks completely, you wouldn't have raw manga, doujinshi, or anime to download, meaning no subs or scanlation.
For every barrier put up, another one falls. Some programmer or batshit insane otaku will fin a way around this.
Do you guys really think that they can just wholly stop the outflow of uploading from Japan?
Which would mean I would have no reason to use the internet anymore aside from email and info.
True. I'll start caring and get off my ass when they hunt BT.
if they manage to ban filesharing that leave open a huge market...
There will still be damaged done.
This is being done by all the largest ISPs in Japan by their own will, and not by government pressure.
All depends on how serious they are I suppose
or they send them from Korea, which receives most Japanese TV. Just as well, being so much of the art was drawn in Korea to begin with!
Look, I'll say this. This IP banning will happen but overtime it'll wear off and things will slowly get back to normal. Take /a/ for instance after the /a/ /jp/ split. For the first say 4 to 8 days, /a/ was really serious about this sticky Moot put up, but about a week after, and after the sticky disappeared, /a/ kinda went back to normally scheduled programming.
if its the isps then im assuming that they just want to appear like they are doing something, to appease the people who are giving them pressure, they'll most likely find some unlucky bloke every few months to harass so they can say "hey we are doing sumthin bout it"
Well, the QUALITY art, at least.
crap i forgot all bout /jp/
i wonder how they'll take the news
hai guyz, i made this homepage, its in a html file, how do i shared it?
tldr, the whole fucking internet is file sharing, this shit will never work. Ban one protocol and a new one will be out within hours. If they ever do this, it will only attract even more competent developers to work on defeating their systems.
I dunno which /a/ you're talking about, but /a/ was going to shit due to modfaggotry several months before the /a/ and /jp/ split.
Said modfaggotry peaked shortly after the split, and it became downright nazi in here for a few days. It was pretty depressing actually. Then they loosened up a bit, but it hasn't been the same ever since.
True. If ISPs or even companies themselves went after every person connected to a P2P network, it'd be on a massive scale. Take the RIAA for example, every person connected to limewire or some other shitty P2P would of gotten a either a notice or lawsuit by now.
There's no money in going after everyone so they go after the few that matter and then hibernate a while waiting for the next big catch.
I'm a talking about the content.
"Occurring simultaneously as the ISP ban put in effect to curb piracy the number of persons caught with narcotics shot up 150%, number of rape and violent crimes committed rose to 200%, number of sexual assault on minors shot up a whopping 600%....."
Wouldn't that last part be because of Unicef?
Imageboards and laws don't really work the same way...
You know what?
