If the government becomes a Communism, Anarchy, or any other type of Polictical rule, then it's inhabitants must destroy the new government..It is written in the constitution....Ironicly, I don't even understand what I typed, I just copied it from a book......

Ok, lets see. Its against the law to be watching all the anime on this site, so why not, make another law making fan-art illegal - like anyone is going to listen to that one either.

Until they regulate the internet, they can make as many laws as they wish, everyone is just going to ignore them.

You best be trolling, because there are many people who live and die without seeing even just one anime.

Are you aware of the new law of Western Cartoons and Japanese Cartoons? (anime)
When this bill is passed, it will become illegal to make illicit drawings of characters from such sources (fan art).
It will be a punishable offense.

Fan art will essentially cease to exist in both Japan-U.S.
Ambassador's advice from Japan.



Source and relevant link, please.

What venues does this cover? What constitutes "fanart" according to the legislation and by what mediums sold? Artists sell fanart at conventions all the time, just only enough to cover the costs of printing.

Production studios (especially in Japan) probably won't do much to enforce it even then. Doujinshi sales generate far too much publicity without cutting into their profits.

why would they do this!? Fan art doesnt hurt the subbers or viewers. Its more of a free enterprise.
