Baka Tsuki got DCMA and projects related to them are being taken down.

Unlicensed projects too.

What the fuck? And B-T are just going to give in just like that?

Who gave the DMCA? If it's Dengeki themselves I won't mind, but if it's Yen Press or some other Murrican publisher then they can fuck right off, it's just like FAGimation's Lance Heiskell back in 2008.

>>134893396
DMCA is a very un-American process. Anyone can issue a DMCA request, and you have to take it down immediately. You then can protest and try and get it reinstated, but the legal burden is on the accused here, which is the complete opposite of how things normally work.

From the B-T facebook page

Alright guys, this one's a doozy:
Baka-Tsuki just got hit by a DMCA from Kadokawa. And this time, it's crippling,
Series affected by this are (all languages):
DAL, Itsuten, Haganai, DYD, Index, LH, Mondaiji. Nobuna, Arisu, Nareru SE, Kuusen, Sakurasou, Shana, Slayers, Chaika, Ero-manga, Spice & Wolf, Baccano, Black Bullet, Accel World, Index, Oreimo and Papakiki
Also, a note from Big Boss (tlg):
"Hey guys,
Looks like this time it's Kadokawa's turn to send DMCA, and it's a doozy. There are so many series listed that I think the jig is pretty much up. The server will need to be move from US if B-T wants to survive.
If this is the case I don't think I can continue to pay for the server anymore (as outright copyright infringement conflicts with my job). We will need to find a person to take over the operation. The server requirement shouldn't be that expensive. $20/month would suffice, I believe.
tlg"
>>
Note from Ping:

The DMCA is from Kadokawa, just like how Campione was taken down the last time.

I can assure you that NT is not being taken down at this time though. The reason why only 2 side stories were taken down was because they were listed, and not the others.

It doesn't even have to do with being poor and wanting shit for free.
If official translations were released with the same speed and quality as fan works were I wouldn't mind paying a few shekels at my local b&n. Hell I'd be happy to, it would be easier to build a collection and I much prefer reading physical books to digital ones. The same goes for anime, if late-night shit was translated and provided with the same quality as certain subgroups every week, I wouldn't be against subscribing to something.

But fuck streaming quality, fuck waiting years for a shoddy official translation. I want it now and I want it to look good. The free part is just a bonus.

They won't go fast because they don't want to oversaturate the market the way manga and anime localizers have done before - which bankrupted several of them. So they pick a modest range of popular series - enough to spread out the risk, but not too many because licensing costs - and trickle out three volumes a year for each.

WHY FUCKING DO THIS?

I live in fucking Latin America. I don't speak japanese and unless I get licensed novels online paying a testicle for customs I won't ever get my hands on a copy.
Then why the hell do this?
It's not like their sales numbers are dropping for having fanmade translations. I would even bet that having fanmade translations can get them a lot more money because it can reach even more fans who'll then buy the novels when they get released.

Fuck man novels take ages to be licensed in english and even more time to be released. Same fucking thing happened to Mahouka, was taken down from BT when I was halfway through and now it's fucked up and can't find it anywhere on the internet..

Japanese publishers have their wallets full, light novels sell like hotcakes in Japan they dont fucking need to do this, much less for novels that aren't translated to english yet.

And the saddest part is that this bullshi is what has translators dropping projects frequently.
They're fucking doing it for free and get sued for it.
>>
>>134901713
What is hilarious is that they take down translations for even stuff like the Turkish language and Japan has no interest in marketing to areas like that. Fuck the DMCA.
>>
>>134898542
For now.
Did anyone prep links for those two? Those side stories are unlikely to ever be officially translated; it was enough suffering finding the raw text.
>>
Hmm. A bunch of that is not popular enough to ever be worth licensing, so it can't be that.

Could it be because characters from a whole bunch of those are in this fighting game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJqDY8kj7YY and we're getting a port of it? And then it percolated through the massive media conglomerate network and anything tangentially related ended up on the enforcement list?

Also I'm pretty sure Arisu isn't even that popular in Japan and isn't in any game, so that might accidentally have revealed an upcoming anime.

Viz's problem with Shana stemmed from censorship and no one knowing wtf a light novel was. Everyone knows about them now, so they aren't the risk they once were.

What do you mean?
Let's say I create a password protected account, host the pdf files and give you guys the password, wouldn't that be a good way? If I'm not advertising it I'm guessing they won't bother taking it down
I don't know shit about hosting and torrents so there's that too
>>
>>134905862
Dropbox can still nuke shit if deemed a violation of copyright.
>>
>>134905888
Fuck. What if it's for personal use and I don't give the password to anyone, keeping it to myself?

If you guys give me a good way to share the files without getting in trouble I'll do that and just use dropbox for myself, I really want that offline access

Sorry for the computer illiteracy.

But they're not? Did you even read the rest of the thread? The DMCA is for the SS that ran concurrent with the original Index.

Never understood this fan translation mentality. It's as if people just can't let go of the past. Official translations aren't bad. The biggest difference I've notice between the two are that fan translations tend to be more vulgar. I guess/a/ is just too edgy and underground for the mainstream, official translations, which are commonly ripped off anyways. Another bunch of whining faggots shedding tears over some cartoons.

I wonder if they could just simulcast light novels just like what Funi and CR do.

Then people won't have to complain as much about how long it'll take for them to get to a certain part of the novel that they've already read or something cause availability is the biggest complaint people have and shit.

Well that's what they want to try and do, it'd be a good to see if it can take off that way although the people that prefer physical purchases/releases may still be annoyed since this system here is only digital.
>>
>>134913796
Why would you still import it in Japanese if you could get it on BookWalker in English?
>>
>>134913613
Yet none of their LNs are on there. They already licensed out the popular stuff like SAO to Yen Press.
>>
>>134913921
This is the first step, nuke all the series now and get people craving, then put them on BookWalker later while you have the demand.
Also there isn't anything stopping them from also putting the eBook version of SAO with co operation with Yen Press on BookWalker either.

>>134913613
If it's as successful as the English section of Comic Walker, they're doomed.

>>
>>134921196
maybe I'm missing something, but it looks like only the foreign language pages were listed in the DMCA, so that might be why its still up. I'm sure it will come down. Also, the current translator has said they would stop translating if their blog got a DMCA, so this might be one series that will be dead for good after this is all said and done.

I bet this is why some of Yen Press' releases aren't available as ebooks, while some are, even ones on the same label. Kadokawa holding back the popular ones for BookWalker.

Man with the way things are going people may want to save up the other novels, especially ones that were already done like, "Silver Cross and Draculea" as well as Tokyo Ravens since the volumes that are completed are up to date, except for the side stories.

If only BT had moved their server years ago when this first started happening, it would have saved so much angst. As it is, if they do move it now, it will probably take a while, and they probably won't bring back any of the series that have been dmca'd recently since a lot of the translators have probably moved on.
>>
>>134922058
Only because it won't ever end. NT isn't being taken down, and JS06 would probably keep translating it somewhere else if it was.
>>
>>134922115
At the rate Kamachi is going, we'll probably be at the third iteration of Index when YP gets to NT. Although it does make me wonder if Kamachi had planned this in advance so that fan translation gets to continue with NT on a technicality. I mean, when YP announced they were doing 3-4 a year, Kamachi suddenly went into overdrive and started releasing Index just as fast or even faster than that.
>>
>>134909613
That varies greatly on who does the actual translation. Even from the same publisher you get very different results. The yen press version of danmachi is really quite good. the seven seas version of 12 beast/monmusume... not so good.

>>134921495

I think decentralized translators would be fine as long as there's some aggregator that grabs releases like Aho. I mainly read on my ancient tablet and aho is a godsend.
>>
>>134922080
It's never too late to move to a differemt server. And if they do move, I think TLs would be more willing to put their work back.

>>134924816
But this is a better solution. But there does need to be an umbrella of sort to keep it all organize to make it easier for everyone. It would be chaotic and time consuming to follow several dozens of LNs through a TL's own site without some sort of collective management.

>>134928183
You're looking at actual server costs. Server hosting is generally what you're looking for. Keep in mind you would need to find one locally. how to go about that I'm unsure.

okay, found a couple that are argie, how much space are we talking about? can i buy two times the same plan and somehow host the same in both? Because some are looking too small

You would need those numbers form someone at BT. Unless they publish their bandwith usage/disk usage you can't find it out another way.
>>
>>134928336
I'm not expert, but if we are talking about text and images for LN hosting, then probably 2TB, maybe 3TB is ideal.

>>134928472
should i e-mail them?
i guess i'll do.


>>134928497
i'll have to call the companies that are located here tomorrow or monday and talk about better plans, because the top im finding at their webpages are things like 500gb for like 8-10USD and the likes, they must have better shit im guessing.

Really? Aren't most of the images not even full resolution? I wouldn't think even a TB for BT would be needed. Probably closer to 800 tops. The guy even said ~$20 They'd have to be a lot more popular then I give them credit for if they're using more then a TB

you sure? then this should be easy
im stuck at multiple TBs, though im more worried about transference


delete that, found the one
https://zetahosting.net/webhosting

>infinite transference
>located in Lomas de Zamora, Capital Federal, Buenos Aires, Argieland
the thing is the storage space it's way too little, i'll call them tomorrow morning and see if other plans can be arranged and at what cost.
>>
>>134928960
question to whoever may know, if a buy more than one plan, can i host the same webpage in both? because the plan with infinite transference is something like 4USD month, so if i can just get 5 of those everything would work just fine

For people who read web novels, the authors of those web novels usually head to Overlap to start publishing their web novels.

So yeah, quite strange how LN publishers like Overlap and Hobby Japan get ignored by translators while they mainly translate LNs from Kadokawa, instead.

Why the fuck aren't they fighting this? Half of this shit will never see the light of day past Japan, or in Index's case, it will take fucking 20 years to have them catch up to the current LNs. It's not like it's detracting sales. Especially the unlicensed shit, what the fuck.

No, it was dumb to announce anything but a index 3. It was Index 10th anniversary and not just that, they spent the ENTIRE YEAR hyping up index. This was an entire fucking year worth of pure undiluted hype and on the day increased that hype by shoving the place up with index crap, have index shit and even bringing in the singers for the OP and ED to sing them. From all that hype, you'd be retarded tp think its anything but index 3

Everyone has the right to be salty over that. It was straight up cruel
>>
>>134931132
Everything about it was advertised as Kamachi's 10th anniversary, not Index's.

The announcement event was absolute bullshit, but there was nothing wrong with having the HO anime as the last of the 10 announcements.

There have been attempts on that from the translator side but as you can see it's pretty futile.
>>
>>134931125

You know, this shit would have a shot at working if they weren't so fucking hostile towards the fan translators. Like, as they translate each novel and put shit up on Book Walker, they issue a corresponding take down on that particular book.

Instead, they take down a bunch of shit all at once. There is no guarantee they won't drop said titles mid-way through. Long LNs like Index will take years for them to catch up to. There is no other alternative other than waiting on their bullshit. It's a huge fuck you to fans.

And now they aren't going to fucking get anywhere because fans will boycott their shit out of spite. Because they were too stupid to realize how the internet works to realize that they can't truly suppress fan translation and file sharing. All this did was piss off a bunch of people with a mild inconvenience. Nothing is going to change. We have most of this shit backed up. It's like Napster all over again.

Oh well, Gen X mentality for you.

Psycho Love Comedy was one volume away from being completely translated.

Yen Press licensed it. Now it will take even more years for anyone to read Psycho Love Comedy's last volume.

Psycho Love Comedy was pretty obscure and it made little sense for it to be licensed compared to other titles.

Yen Press definitely was browsing BT.

No guarantee, but a precedent. This isn't a mom and pop operation like Seven Seas and Tokyopop. Yen Press has the backing of the actual publishing industry. If Index only breaks even or sells for a loss it's simply the cost of doing business with Kadokawa. Canceling books strains a relationship that is worth far more than a single title. /a/ needs to get some perspective, as things are not always equal in the world of business.

No duplicates, though that stack is made up of two series (Horizon and OnC).
It's also really out of date. Adding in all volumes released since then would probably make it almost twice as high.
