There could be someone who doesn't live in Japan but gets Japanese channels who can record anime and dramas etc.

But if Winny is gone then it'll be really hard to find some manga. >.<

No, no, no, no, no, no, NO! they can't just cut off our anime like this I suggest a riot. I really don't care if they ban sharing of music files I the position that I'm in if I wanted I could ask to meet most of the bands I listen to and get front row tickets to every show they play in the us. But not my anime this is the most inhuman thing they can do to us it's like taking away your t.v or cigarettes or some healthy addiction.

There will always be a way to download music or other such files off the internet. Hell i remember when Napster was busted down and i thouight it was all over, but than Kaza came around and than things like Limewire and shit. Now i use BitTorrent, and its pretty much like Napster never really mattered to begin with hahahha.

Well I don't watch any series at all really so it won't affect me. You may not be able to get the anime when it airs, but they will come out on DVD's. It's like your premiere when the first DVD comes out? I don't know... you may get it later, but for OVAs they come out on DVD right away :O!

Is it just music? How does this affect anime/drama watchers?
But the file-sharing business is so large, I seriously doubt they'd be able to stop it. Just like the matter of selling pirated stuff in China...it's illegal, but it didn't stop it at all. >.< Plus, there's always ways to get RAW's. =) At least it's only Japan. XD Hope Korea and China don't follow their example.

and from what i know about bands/artists is that they don't care if you download their music instead of buying it, as long as you support them >.<

&#$*%&$)*%&$!! >.<


bullshit of course they care unless they are a massive band that have sold millions. Think of how much in debt these new bands are from record lable advances and making videos and stuff. The amount of sales to break even is staggering especially if the label have pushed you a lot and payed for you to record an album. I am speaking from experience since i have friends and family who have had top 40 UK hits and run small record labels and publishing companies etc plus i work in the recording side and i know hoe much it costs to make an album in a top studio with a top producer and top engineer.

In short these bands need to recoop the money the label has spent on them before they make profit and they cant do that if people illegaly download music!
