Manga Scanlation Websites React to Anti-Piracy News

Only several days passed after a consortium of Japanese and American manga publishers had decided to team up in order to stop online manga piracy. But so far this move has already caused tantalizing developments on this front popping right and left and, of course, the opinions have been heated by the announcement.


The majority of large manga scanlation sites is still online and continues the operations, but a couple of them reacted instantly to the news. For example, one website called Manga Traders seems to have been shut down. At least, the comments in different online forums say the "404 Page Not Found" error is coming up due to server problems, and it isn’t connected to the announcement of manga publishers' consortium about threatening scanlation websites. Still, it isn’t absolutely clear if this information true or not.

Another site, Manga Helpers, has announced it won’t any longer be hosting any infringing content (or links to it) in its database system. They point out that the members of scanlation groups will still have an access to the previously uploaded files, but only till the end of June, when all works will be removed for everyone. Instead, they hinted on launching another site called "Open Manga" as a substitute of a closing online manga publishing resource.

In the meantime, Torrance, Californian Digital Manga Publishing, an American publisher who even is not a part of this American-Japanese anti-piracy coalition, has made some efforts approaching scanlation groups in order to offer them a deal they wouldn’t be able to refuse. The publisher offers semi-professionals a unique opportunity to translate, publish and earn money by working on licensed manga. After the Yaoi Review broke this story several days ago, it has been causing lots of lively discussion from fans.

As for those publishers who do participate in the consortium, they have also been discussing the situation with scanlations and the way they feel they are influencing the manga publishing business in the United States, Japan and the entire world. Publisher's Weekly has recently posted a report about the current turn of affairs, where the results proved the industry strongly believes that scanlations hurt the whole global manga industry, but now no one can know what direction this market will move in.
