If you haven't heard the news already, the popular fansub group Dattebayo has been seized by the ICE Homeland Security Investigations. (above) Well, they haven't subbed anything in the past months, and they were caught red-handed! So how do you guys feel about this? Also, do you think that Homeland Securtiy is a bit harsh, or did Dattebayo deserved it? What are your thoughts, and what shall we do about this? Drop down in the comments below. If this thread has been posted before, please lock it.

Seems like troll bait. I mean, they stopped subbing certain anime because of the legality of it, I recall.

I'm not entirely sure though, but given their history of these kind of pranks, it wouldn't completely surprise me.

Would suck if its true. I used to use Dattebayo all the time for Naruto and Bleach before crunchyroll got them. I know Dattebayo loved to troll all the time though, so it wouldn't shock me in the least if it is just a troll. XD lol

Seeing how its been during the middle of this week Dattebayo was forbidden to go into and then around friday they had the seized image for there site and no way to get past it I dont see it as troll. Also I was sad seeing how they only were doing 3 series subbings this season and this year will be the Naruto 4 movie and Bleach 4 movie coming to DVD is a really sad fact if in fact Dattebayo is down for good now. Especially since they are the only few subgroups that I trust to do an accurate job.

Haven't you heard of the illegal seizures of about 70 + bittorrent related websites? It happened a little over a month ago, and websites like torrentfinder had this exact page displayed.

Here is one of that articles http://www.prisonplanet.com/us-government-seizure-of-the-internet-has-begun-dhs-takes-over-76-websites.html

It is not a joke, and it's actually HIGHLY ILLEGAL to put that up as fraud. It makes the legalities of being a fansubber looks like a joke in comparison. The sad thing is they seized these sites by bypassing the 4th and 14th amendments, thus it was an unconstitutional seizure of websites which is something I have been upset over for a while.

The US government is starting to regulate the internet in an attempt to censor information similar to china and many middle eastern dictatorships. This is not good for anybody who enjoys their civil liberties.

The Government of the States has been taking away our rights for years. Mainly hitting on freedom of speech and religion. I can get a heated topic going just by mentioning this question "What do you think the reason behind Waco Texas was?" And trust me it was nothing as to what the news press said it was about.

Very true. In recent years the media in general has become a tool of the liberal government and when that government wasn't liberal the media used bash tactics against those who are not. This is one of the problems with net neutrality, they're going to take down anything and everything that even shows signs of being in a gray area. I don't think this is a troll, it's illegal to use the badges displayed in the seizure notice without the governments say so. I have 'ta say that these agencies have nothing better to do than seize a site that lost all of its usefulness about a year ago.

The site still had some use to it since they would do the next movies for naruto and bleach but the problem though is they can start with the fansubs doing it for free but what will stop the government from taking down crunchyroll, nwanime.com and other videos sites?

CR and Funimation gets licenses for the anime they stream, so I think they are safe, but this IS the government we're talking about here.

I doubt that CR would get shut down, cause they use legal licenses for the anime that they have. And if every single site that has anime on it gets shut down, i'm gonna learn Japanese and gonna move to Japan. XD

China may care about infromtion involving the government and the way it treats people but they don't give 2 shits about copyrights nor do they respect becasue of they fact they produce most of the worlds illegal dvd's, ds flash carts etc. So I would take censorship over the government than copyrights any day. Also it's the net pics get passed around I used to be part of 4chan there where fake gif images that used this type of image as above for jokes, Illegal or not I don't think some care.
