    Did they get done sterilizing trans people first?

    "Downloading anime images, illustrations, and photographs that have been illegally posted to personal blogs and Twitter accounts would also be illegal, as would copying and pasting song lyrics." :lmao::rofl::lmao:

    Probably not for the time being, because it pertains to Japan. Problem is, the EU is also doing something about copyright laws.

    Regarding OJ, I'm neither the owner nor the admins of this site. I'm not even a mod. Thus, I don't have a better answer. Even they might not have an answer, which shouldn't be surprising because nobody knows what the future will bring regarding laws, regulations, and other things of such nature.

    This smells like bullshit, if I am allowed to be blunt. You can't stop a whole nation from sharing pictures, whether they be illegal or not. All people regularly using the internet rely on something basic like sharing media. I can understand that they want to work against pirating but this will be a shot into the air.

    Will welp, if they do pass this ridiculous law of banning screenshots..

    We could see this happen.
    In an arena thread X vs Y
    Look what X did in chapter 530 page 14..
    Oh yeah Y did it much better in chapter 630 page 8...

    Japanese laws only belongs to Japan. Those doesn't apply to us (except if you live in EU like me, new laws will come as well).

    Once in a while govrnment wants to do such thing, and this not only applies to Japan, but the Europe and America as well.
    I remember when they created a copyright law called "ACTA" IN 2012. Young people in my country were so angry, they started a very effective and loud protests. They even had an anthem based on a song "I'm sexy and I know it"....It was called..... "I'M A PIRATE, and I know it" in polish version of course :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
    Well, the protests succed and the govenment decided to let it go that time, but once in a while the topic returns.

    Better have the actual physical or legit digital media (or saved scans). Guessing most the scan websites would be going down if they want to be serious about it.

    Well, this is how discussions went in the times before scans and screenshots. I thought we have left those days by now, but I guess the law makers have not.

    Guess we have to move to America, then, where the internet is still free.

    The laws haven't been created yet. It's just proposal for now. The earliest that the laws will go into affect (if they decide to make them) is sometime next year.

    It's not like redistributing mangas was allowed before, it's still illegal but people will still do it.
