How many times is this idiocy going to be tried? This is already the 5th or 6th time I've seen info on this TPP fair use ban. Who keeps thinking all the parties involved will agree after it's been vetoed at least twice now?

What about fanart and cosplay of comic book heroes, and video games, fanfic like Fifty Shades of Grey? If they are ok, then why same thing from anime aren't.

Street performers wearing costumes at Hollywood would be branded criminals?


They would all have been considered illegal and potentially subject to prosecution. 50 shades of Grey may have escaped prosecution however, as the author made a huge amount of money and could therefore hire a good team of lawyers. In the case of video games, the existence of DOTA and Team Fortress would be illegal as they started out as mods to other games. Arguably, if DOTA had never existed then MOBAs (and the huge amounts of money they bring in for big companies such as Riot and Valve) would have been little more than an obscure footnote in history with games such as Herzog Zwei in 1989 or with Future Cop: LAPD in 1998.

Imagine game con and comic con without cosplay. Even game producers and comic authors would think it's stupid.


Money is rather effective at changing how people think what is stupid and what is not.

I think some of you are seriously overreacting. It is techincally illegal to use a creation that's not yours anyway.

It's just that most nations, like Japan and even the US, don't really go after people who cosplay or write fanfic. Besides, , I seriously doubt that Japan would've let the West mess with the very thing that most folks probably know Japan for nowadays...

Also, Marvel and other Western media eat this shit up, so it's not like the US would piss on this as well.

It's not going to affect me even if it were to become illegal.

No one mentioned all the Wikia sites and all the Reddit subreddits that would be in for a sacking if that comes to pass...

Of course, it would also mean the sacking of all the fan community sites (unless they get rid of all the graphics and files)

Not to mention my own fansite which I spent months researching and editing for (Who knows if and when it'd just be removed / banned without warning, which happens to certain Youtube and Soundcloud accounts) http://susume-lovelive.wix.com/love-live

This, so much this.

you really, seriously think, anime convention attendeed are the type of people who would give a fuck about some technicality like this? Who'd stop cosplaying, something so fundamental to the fandom, for some stupid reason like this? bwahaha!

I don't think there would be one less cosplayer even at animecon next year, myself certainly included!

I certainly wouldn't stop writing fanfiction.

They ought to just make cosplaying outside your body type illegal. Too many fat Sakuras and Sasukes.
