Can we breathe now?

Or not?

"Posting plot summaries or derivative stories and similar based on our publications."

So says the da post.

Who was your hero today?

Thank you r0o for going threw all this trouble. I hate lawyer language. IT never makes sense to the rest of us. I think they do it on purpose.

Sounds like it isn't for us, I mean wouldn't that would violate the "Fair Use" clause?

@ War I don't think it would actually, since there are people who make money off of R.T.'s characters when that is a big no no.

But that aside, I thought at first when I saw the first few posts, and even the first translation I found that they were going to try and shut the fandom down. After looking through the yahoo site translation, it sounds to me like they are pointing towards things like manga reader sites that post scans of manga illegally. Things like that which are owned completely by Shogakukan and all the other big corps. Which makes a lot more sense, since shutting down a fandom would be near impossible to do.

And a lot of manga reading sites have been shut down lately, so it would make more sense that this is to reinforce those copyrights.

I'm kinda agreeing with the manga reader sites, they've already TRIED to pull them down before, remember when everything shut down, and lets not forget our beloved OneManga... i miss that site's usefulness!

I am throwing this out there to quell the argument: www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html

If the copyright license holder is saying "DON'T USE THIS, EVEN IN YOUR ORIGINAL CREATIONS" then it is that simple. DON'T.

The information is out there for all to see. We know that there is a chance they will not allow it. (and I say chance because we are still waiting on clarification on it) Fair use ONLY APPLIES when there is no preset rule from the license holder on what is or is not appropriate use of their intellectual property, AND it is not feasible for the artist to contact the company. Nintendo did this years ago because of all the sprite issues.

However, it is hard to enforce. On top of that, as has been pointed out, this probably has more to do with manga scans and the re-posting of official art. Or traced art. Or people commissioning fan art for money. (Which violares rule 4 of the fair use clause ANYWAY)

We have to wait and see what a clarified statement says.

Frankly, until we receive, in writing, a legal notice to "cease and desist," as far as I'm concerned, everything stays the same here. Period.

I'll be sure to let everyone know if anything like that happens, 'k? Until then, I'm not losing any sleep over it, and I don't think you guys should either.

I figured it wouldn't be real, something this major would be hard to enforce loves, you don't ever have to worry about things like this until an official law is posted... not some blogger on a website. You can't control people and you certainly can't control the internet. Some rules would be understandable and almost recommended. A complete ban would be impossible to try and enforce not to mention the millions of lawsuits they could 'try' to go through with.

Better article to read: Re-Blog

The same person who started the scare has backpedaled, as shown in that article.


~~~ Quoting:


I sincerely apologize to the entire DA community for this false alarm!

Earlier this week, I made a post stating:

Shogakukan publication company bans all Fan-art / Doujinshi under their ownership.


This is apparently FALSE, and I received a confirmation e-mail from Shogakukan stating that only OFFICIAL characters / publications outlined on their website for copyright rules apply.


Again, fan-art / doujinshi are omitted (not included) under those rules.

I am Japanese/American, and for SOME reason, I believed this ban was very true, even AFTER reading the official rules myself! >__<

Again, I sincerely apologize to the entire DA community, and everyone that may have been falsely alarmed by my news.
I should have waited for the confirmation e-mail before making any false statements.

Please accept my sincerest apologies.

Saddest part is apparently people pulled fan art from DA because of it.

Yeah, and another sad part is that they'll have trouble enforcing even the revised statement. Anything in the way of Manga/Anime/Cartoons that is popular would have a heck of a time enfocing any cease and desist orders internationally as long as Hong Kong exists in its current state.

i kinda figured that was the case. It kinda sounded like japan was trying to do the impossible. It's good to know that i don't have to pull down that lil drabble collection i'm starting. Now that the proverbial needle has been found in the haystack, i can continue writing without worries that i can't post as an outlet. When i first read it, i though my chest had fallen on the floor, and i'd need stitches to put it back in place!! lol

Sorry to have caused anyone distress. I was worried and upset when I read it on DA.
