I personally think there shouldn't be a new thread about this every week.

Eliminating piracy is as feasible like eliminating poverty, Just ask riaa and mpaa about their never ending unsuccessful anti piracy war.

I don't really have a view on it lol

I keep hearing all this anti-piracy news, but it doesn't really faze me since i'm pretty much unaffected by it. Thus, my opinion is determined by factors which I don't have a direct connection to.

On the one hand, i'm pretty much against piracy in general since it's, ya know, piracy

On the other hand, I hear that the anti-piracy movements will make things pretty hard for fans outside of the US. (At least, that's what i've heard).

However, even if it does cause problems for overseas fans, I suppose that's just because it's pretty hard to stream and distribute anime out there. It might be better to try and solve that problem rather than just "fixing it" with piracy.

So, at the end of the day, I guess I support the anti-piracy movements? But as i said, I don't really have a strong opinion one way or the other.

- Edit -

Just as a side note - I also think the title is a tad misleading. "Anti-piracy" seems more fitting than "anti anime/manga". Not that it matters much since the article makes that pretty clear.

Didn't they already try something similar back around 2008-2009? In response to the piracy sites that turned legal or shut down, new piracy sites sprung up.

Dont give a shit. I pirate what i cant view legally and i honestly don't give a crap. Its the governments fault for imposing redundant and outdated licensing laws; that do not coexist well with international internet communities.

I have spent close to 2 grand on blu-rays due to immense duty rates on importation.

I support anime through my crunchyroll subscription and my sporadic blu-ray purchases.

If the Japanese government wants more of my money, then they can get rid of those paltry licensing laws.

I would love to throw my money at anime producers, but it seems as if i need to hold them at gun point, just to shove my money into their pockets.

Piracy is also not illegal in my current country of residence; so...yeah.

Coming soon to an illegal streaming site near you. Warning contains all common anime cliches
Japan should pay you to turn this into a series. I know I would buy it.

On the Topic at hand even if Japan strives to get rid of anime and manga piracy it still won't go away and new sites will pop up. Pirates will just find a way around this and continue to do what they do. Piracy is something that will truly never be stopped.
