This note isn’t for all int’l scanlators of course. Just the ones who use JAC’s scans under the pretense it’s theirs.
We work hard to scanlate manga and myself in particular, work hard to redraw manga. Please don’t take JAC’s scans…erase the English and slap your translation in…then credit yourselves as if you edited the entire thing. It’s difficult for us to apply the ‘law’ to what we do, considering the legalities behind this ‘hobby’. But that does not give any of you the right to use our scans that way without even having the courtesy to say ‘Hey, I wasn’t the one who cleaned it.’
So in case it is said that JAC has never taken a stance on this, we’ll say...
