[07-30, 20:39] <herkz

[07-30, 20:12] <Zephyrial
> Where did they post the notice?
[07-30, 20:00] <xDev
> mods should put a huge notice on the front regarding this whole August 1 thing. Though I doubt it'll stop people from talking about it anyway.
[07-30, 19:55] <deanzel
> Temporarily shutdown chatbox until August 1st so users panic?
[07-30, 19:53] <zerhanox
> i hear that nyaa will be closed by japan in 1 August? is this true? i hope its just fake news

[07-30, 19:01] <Nyaa

[07-30, 18:55] <LateralusManga
> But at least, it's a form of say: you're causing much problem to our site. Stay out.
[07-30, 18:54] <boredatwork
> exactly ip bans don't do shit unless you're totally clueless
[07-30, 18:52] <MisterDonut
> it wont. because the people that upload good stuff are bright enough to use a proxy or similar.
[07-30, 18:48] <qwilliam
> If you IP ban all the Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans doesn't that kill like half the content uploaded?
[07-30, 18:47] <Stefanus_E

[07-30, 18:42] <lifebaka

[07-30, 18:01] <anime90
> I see, just recently I checked the site, didn't know about that
[07-30, 17:59] <herkz

[07-30, 17:50] <Profuse
> @JohnVaughan many people have a misconception of Special Education, I myself was a special education student and also was an adult special education student.
[07-30, 17:49] <misaka11

[07-30, 17:33] <JohnVaughan
> That was a rather interesting pdf at least. Fun to know what the percentages for user traffic language is.
[07-30, 17:31] <deanzel

> If the lawyers come a knockin', direct them to the chatbox. We've got the best and brightest here to fight them off.
[07-30, 17:26] <LateralusManga
> Still, I'm in the idea of a massive IP-ban of all Japanese, Chinese, Koreans
[07-30, 17:26] <herkz
> i'm starting to think so
[07-30, 17:22] <JohnVaughan
> Holy fuck did all the special ed schools let their students on the internet?
[07-30, 17:15] <JyggalagSila
> All they are doing is just sending requests... Its up to sites to delete content or not. If they agree to delete it on nyaa.se which i doubt will happen, then they might as well close nyaa.se cuz nothing will be left. And Japan can go fuck himself cuz without piracy no one would watch Anime. In fact more than 90% of people who play games have pirated versions and gaming industry cant do shit. Same goes with anime. I think what nyaa.se should do to feel all safe is to copy all content on some secret location that only members know and then delete everything so it seems that they are gone, but in fact they are not xD Anyways, would like to hear what others think about this...
[07-30, 17:13] <herkz
> yeah except the countries where most of these sites are hosted don't give a fuck about foreign IP laws
[07-30, 17:05] <AutoOps007
> @herkz the difference between this and other takedown letters is that this time they have the political powers of the Japanese Federal government and the cooperation of 15 major anime production companies and manga publishers
[07-30, 17:00] <pramana
> is it true that jap gov will forbid all anime&manga download ?
[07-30, 17:00] <saiyounara
> Attack of Kim jung un =))
[07-30, 16:53] <lifebaka
> LateralusManga, don't listen to [TRVE]. He's smart and right, and you should never listen to people like that.
[07-30, 16:49] <seish
> poor kim jong un :(
[07-30, 16:21] <herkz
> kim jong un
[07-30, 16:12] <deanzel
> So... who's the owner of nyaa that's gonna take the fall for us?
[07-30, 16:10] <[TRVE]
> Take a look at the Pirate Bay. The owners had a trial, were sentenced and TPB is still running.
[07-30, 16:09] <[TRVE]
> LateralusManga, calm down and DON'T PANIC.
[07-30, 16:05] <opabato9000
> well yup, different cr employess & all but i personally don't care
[07-30, 15:59] <karyuudo
> CR translations vary depending on the translator. Honestly I would rather a reputable fansub group over CR
[07-30, 15:54] <opabato9000
> cr is doing a fine job overall and bcuz i don't know nearly enough jp to care about translation quality lol
[07-30, 15:54] <OniichanDaisuki
> I mean, I'm not supposed to do that, am I? otherwise the restriction makes no sense
[07-30, 15:44] <MisterDonut
> then get a vpn. or setup one yourself.
[07-30, 15:43] <OniichanDaisuki
> it's all region restricted, like hulu and others
[07-30, 15:42] <Roxazthelight
> so.. will nyaa survive? it's said 削除されず ~
[07-30, 15:38] <LateralusManga
> Just one legal and concrete action (and it happened) and the site would disappear.
[07-30, 15:37] <LateralusManga
> Not "freaking out", but I know that Nyaa.se would be in danger in the following months.
[07-30, 15:37] <Muzs_NY
> @LateralusManga what is CR? never heard of it.
[07-30, 15:37] <Muzs_NY
> well. possibilities :/
[07-30, 15:34] <herkz
> well if you know it won't work then why the hell are you freaking out about it?
[07-30, 15:34] <LateralusManga
> Lunarfang, is the main course of things. However, some people won't understand that, specially some people t
[07-30, 15:28] <LateralusManga
> And yeah, CR is killing fansubbing. Deal with it.
[07-30, 15:28] <LateralusManga
> So, that initiative, in the course of 1 year, will be completely worthless. Nowadays, fansubbing is becoming less and less relevant because of CR and other options.
[07-30, 15:27] <LateralusManga
> I know those piracy enforcements won't wont. In this moment, piracy is unstoppable and the only form to erradicate is to shut down the Internet
[07-30, 15:25] <herkz
> well then answer this: how the hell are they going to enforce it? this website gets tons of takedown letters all the time and yet all the content stands.
[07-30, 15:23] <LateralusManga
> the problem is that some of us are totally pessimistic about the situation.
[07-30, 15:22] <LateralusManga
> herkz, the problem is not the people who is completely idiot
[07-30, 15:20] <SneakiestNEG
> The US state department has a list of evil countries, Holland is on that list. And proud of it.
[07-30, 15:18] <SneakiestNEG
> nyaa is on a server in the Netherlands? I did not know that. In that case all is well. Even kazaa was considered legal by the Dutch high court.
[07-30, 15:08] <OniichanDaisuki
> nvm I see it, they released them only recently though
[07-30, 15:06] <OniichanDaisuki
> @herkz about star citizen, where can I find some gameplay footage? I love sci-fi
[07-30, 15:05] <Muzs_NY
> it won't stop the piracy, but it will damage the site owners and sharing websites A LOT.
[07-30, 15:02] <herkz
> yeah you guys are complete and utter idiots
[07-30, 15:01] <opabato9000
> @AutoOps shit i was joking, i don't think anything will happen
[07-30, 14:59] <OniichanDaisuki
> if they can understand that streaming works but, download works even better
[07-30, 14:57] <OniichanDaisuki
> this might be the good time they come up with something like itunes or steam but for anime, where you can actually download stuff
[07-30, 14:55] <boredatwork
> it's funny how people think anything will happen. piracy couldn't be stopped in the last 15 years so what makes you think japan can do it now ?
[07-30, 14:54] <OniichanDaisuki
> @jpoy nothing happened, they made a fuss for a while then realized it was harmless and got over it
[07-30, 14:53] <AutoOps007
> @Muzs_NY I would think about 99.99% of content on this website is illegal. I doubt any uploaders on this website has distribution rights
[07-30, 14:53] <Muzs_NY
> i really like nyaa, and find it useful. it sucks that the site i love being threatened. be strong plz. lots of lives are depending on nyaa ;(
[07-30, 14:51] <Muzs_NY
> @Fussoir the report I was able to view was from Japanese officials. Was a japanese report, containing final summary and reports about the regulation project.
[07-30, 14:51] <jpoy
> what happened?
[07-30, 14:50] <Muzs_NY
> @jarcinas777 What the Japanese government is asking is to take all the illegally pirated/scanned/uploaded publishments and products of theirs. BUT, as most of the files uploaded here is torrents linked to those illegal files. So if we just sort them out and delete them, it won't be a problem. But it's too much work.
[07-30, 14:49] <AutoOps007
> @opabato9000 Just because the request will be sent on Aug 1, doesn't mean it will be taken down on that same day. I would imagine that the Japanese government would give the owner of the site about a week to respond before sending out sanctions or taking legal action
[07-30, 14:48] <OniichanDaisuki
> remember what happened with the mp3 back in the early 2000s?
