Japanese ISPs To Ban File Sharers

japanpirate.jpgJapan has decided to beat France and the United Kingdom (both who have similar proposals) to become the first country to ban file sharers from the internet.

Oddly the agreement to do so has not come from the Japanese Government, but from Japan’s four internet service provider organizations after pressure (not surprisingly) from the record and movie industries. According to Torrent Freak, the agreement would see copyright holders tracking down file-sharers on the Internet using “special detection software” and then notifying ISPs of alleged infringers. File sharers will initially receive a warning for a first offense, then be disconnected for subsequent offenses, eventually be disconnected from the internet permanently (it wasn’t clear whether the agreement is a three strikes proposal).

The process will formally commence in April and will primarily target users of Winny, the most popular file sharing network in Japan.

it may be banned and against the law, but that doesn't stop some people. people are stupid enough to break the laws and do it anyway thinking that they will never be caught only to be caught in the future for their retardedness.

anyway

i don't think it will affect anime

It would mean people have to BUY anime, or at least watch it through sponsored and legal channels. This will probably help make anime more profitable in the long run.

There will be other websites like Crunchyroll, but eventually they will either be forced to partner with the producers or be shut down.

I hope this is just the first step in a change in licensing and distribution practices, but I don't have my hopes up.

u knows most people that watch anime are young kids that dnt even have a job yet so how can they buy anime cd that so freaking expensive that u will only watch once. and theres only 2 channels here they only show old animes and if there is a ongoing anime like naruto and bleach most of the time they dnt finish the series i mean like bleach were not even on episode 60 yet they aldready stop showing it

i understand what athrine is trying to say cause im living in the same country as him...yeah anime cd really expensive specially if its original raging 800 - 1000 peso..maybe you can say those word cause your living a normal life not like us am already working 2 part time jobs and its just enough to pay for my finals..what im trying to say is there are alot of people out there that would love to support the anime license but dont have the money..
