I recently went to yahoo and saw this article

if this actually does pass then we will probably cease to see new anime's from japan on the internet raw, fan subbed, or otherwise. I thought i should warn all of my fellow anime fans of this upcoming threat to one of our favorite hobbies.


sounds serious!!! does include manga as well?

Crunchroll might cease to exist if this happens!!! or atleast a big part of it's community will fall!!!

see the thing is... its 20 dollars for 1 season. I go through a season in a day or two if it is fully released, and i wouldn't mind so much if i could also get tokyo tv where i live because i don't want to go out pay 20 dollars for one season of which in japan they can just turn on their tv's and get it for what 35-40 bucks a month (in yen of course.)

Won't happen. It's like the people in the government who hate video games and want to ban them, it won't happen because their's too many people that like them.

One of the comments on the article itself brings up a very good point though and i think you guys should take a look at it.

"Proposals like this one just make me laugh. There is no way this can work from a practical standpoint. Think about it. Internet subscribers are paying customers of the ISPs. There is no way the ISPs are going to be excessively aggressive since it only hurts them in the long run both in reputation (hurt by angry users) and in the pocket book…

So what happens then? The copyright owners are going to eventually want everyone who’s file sharing to get punished, and once the large fish are taken care of, then comes the masses. How many customers do you think an ISP is going to axe before they say, hold on a second, we are getting hammered here…

It’s a direct conflict of interest. Sure, it may allow the ISPs to say “Look, we are trying hard” but in reality they don’t really want file sharing to stop, it’s their bread and butter…"
