    I think yoniekai is probably referring to the fact Narutofan is making money off other people's work.

    I've never understood it either.

    That’s what makes life so interesting, you work hard for something and someone steals it away.

    yeah, cause scanlation is illegal and more is scanning licensed but NF makes money out of it too, and they have tons of users, very hustler-y

    Re: Manga distributors arrested

    I'm not saying that they don't, I'm just saying the very sites that bash them do the same thing .

    Wow this is freak.. A long time back I heard that they are bashing Narutofan badly. But they even do the same thing. yahh who is the bad guy now


    I don't get it quite right about licensed stuff.
    I know that Bleach anime and Naruto anime are licensed - means they are bought by US company and being broadcasted in US..
    But what about manga. Naruto and Bleach manga are published in US too.
    In anyway all printed publications are licensed stuff or copyrighted, aren't they?

    Eh. There's also nobody to stop them. Right now. So presently, it's just two competing businesses throwing mud at each other... kinda like politics

    The part about "nobody stopping them" is why it is all happening. To that respect, I think NJT is right in that most manga distributors are just letting it go by because they know that without worldwide publicity, they would have never gotten as many fans as they have today. And there's still plenty of manga that will need the attention and the necessary exposure for there to be demand for them.

    But at the same time, I'm quite surprised that they are allowed to make money themselves. Maybe they're being considered as "salesmen" and have been deemed to be worthy of the cut for their sites. Either that, or the companies are secretly planning to sue them for all that they're worth in the near future.

    xD

    Re: Manga distributors arrested

    Lol

    >_> That means I am in danger if I scanlate ANY popular manga since a company has the distribution rights to the Japanese mangas in China (including Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong).

    Sad... imma so scared >_>

    Re: Manga distributors arrested

    mmmmh, they were arrested, but, even a 17 years old can be arrested in japan? In italy only after the age of 18 y.o. you can be arrested, and then, they were arrested because they were distributing some raws? Bah...
