Doesn`t VIZ own the series ?
There's a lot more to it than that. He uses fansubs and scanlations and won't take them down no matter how much the people who release them don't want him hosting them.
You cannot say, that site is only at fault. I think that goes for every naruto fan page. Does this site got the rights from any translator for offering the dls ?
That might be true; even through there isn`t any real proof. But again.. look for my question. Doesn´t this site make him richer than ?
He then charges people to get access to those fansubs and scanlations. Assuming the things I've read are true, he actually charges enough to make a decent living for himself.
Sure, i understand what i mean. But i guess, there isn`t much you can do since it is not legal to begin with.
Now, if you were a fansubber or manga scanlator, how would you feel about someone taking something you put time and money into and making a large profit off of it while you, yourself, ask nothing in return? You'd feel pretty cheated and scammed. I know first hand the work these people do, it's not easy and if they use DVD raws it's even kind of expensive. They see not a cent of anything. Yet some jerk who makes them all available for a $5 fee can make up to $30,000+ a year. Now, once again, not sure how accurate those numbers are. Not that they need to be. Even if he were giving away the fansubs and scanlations for free, the people who create them should be respected and if they don't want them being distibuted there, he should still take them down.
Well, i agree with you. Still i cannot say that this site isn`t doing the opposite.
Anyways, this site, to me, isn't so much about legality. 'Cause really, none of this is legal. Pirating's just what we do. In a way what Tazmo's done should've been expected. No honor among theives after all. But this site has done some good. It changed me and a large number of people over. About the people who don't care about the people who give them this stuff in a language they can understand, fuck them. No kidding. I don't mean to be vulgar, but these people don't owe you anything. They aren't your slaves. I'm of the opinion we all ower them quite a bit. We'll see how much you care about them when they stop producing for you.
