I saw a post on the rules/news/info post
Eni talk about how they removed all Manga by kodansha. http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showt...39#post1564239
he doesn't know when or if he can solve this problem but it looks like its going to be a long one. i think it has to do with hosting Raw Files on the site
It has to do with hosting *anything* Kodansha owns, since they own the rights to the other language versions, too.
They sent us a Cease&Desist notice. So until we can come to an agreement with them, we can't have any manga that they publish on our site ^^;
Discussions&Spoilers are not affected by that, though.
The fact that people were scanning and uploading the raws DAYS before it was officially released in Japan was bad ju-ju from the start. No one seems to remember that Japanese publishers cracked down on the Japanese fans who were doing this. Some people went to jail over this for those who've forgotten, which is why we had to get non-Japanese scanners for Negima! and other titles.
SO, the word to the wise is for scans of the Negima! raw to NOT appear before Wednesday when the manga goes on sale in Japan! Otherwise, Kodansha will continue to spew out the C&D's. Legally, they can still do so no matter what, but by at least waiting until Wednesday to post raws, you don't run into the "it is out free before we can even make a sale" element.
I didn't think the posting of any manga in any language was legally compliant in the first place...
Surprising to see it taken down after a cease & desist. I think technically every publisher has the right to send a cease & desist to this site if they wanted (and they probably would if they knew about it), then what? What'll happen to the site? Just a thought....
Ive read the manga about 3 times now but still i cant remember all their names xD negi is legend
Well yes he is going to definitely be a Legendary figure. I mean when the fight with Rakan was over the ending text said a "New Legend is Born" Hes part of the Monster Squad along with Eva, Rakan, Fate and his Old man Nagi. But to remember all the girls names is a feat in itself lol
