Like the title says Bandai starting in February will cease releasing anime to the US supposedly because of pirating...you'll still be able to get ur anime through companies that license them. Example: Sunrise if you want Gundam

Honestly we can all say that this is a terrible move by Bandai, but you really have to agree with what the last two people said though, "It is TRUE."

They're right. But the Japanese are the ones uploading and translating for us.

Because apparently only Americans do pirating.

Well you gotta watch us sneaky Americans, because once we get our hands on something consider it stolen.

Wouldn't Bandai doing this actually enforce the whole pirating scene?

Long Live Bandai.

Meanwhile, in Sweden...

- File-Sharing Recognized as Official Religion in Sweden
- http://torrentfreak.com/file-sharing-recognized-as-official-religion-in-sweden-120104/


Philosophy student Isak Gerson is such a religious file-sharer, and in an attempt to protect his unique belief system he founded The Missionary Church of Kopimism in 2010. In the hope that they could help prevent persecution for their beliefs, the Church then filed a request to be officially accepted by the authorities.

After two failed attempts, where the Church was asked to formalize its way of praying or meditation, the authorities finally recognized the organization as an official religion. The Church’s founder is ecstatic about this news, and hopes that it will motivate more people to come forward as ‘Kopimists’.

Although the formal status of the Church doesn’t mean that copyright infringement is now permitted, the Church’s founder hopes that their beliefs will be considered in future lawmaking.
