Re: Circle (c) and copyrighted

However, you cannot put (c) on your work unless you get copyright from the above $30.00 process. Could you provide a citation for this last sentence? I believe it is not true. In the US, since 1978, a work is copyrighted as soon as it is fixed in a tangible form. The copyright notice is actually op...

Clearly, we are all thieves, in the sense of the law. Well, thievery comes under criminal law, while copyright infringement is (usually) civil law, so there is a technical difference. The RIAA in particular has tried to demonize copyright infringement by conflating it with stealing (and calling it ...

I think you're confusing copyright with trademark Vibius. That's ... unpossible! There's no registration process for copyrights. I'm sorry, but you are wrong about that. In the US, you can indeed register a copyright: http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-general.html (see Why should I register my ...

since you're only hosting the subs, i don't believe there's any risk involved (legality-wise). Well legally, subtitles are protected by copyright too. And if it's a fansub done without permission, it infringes on the original author's copyright. The risk may be low, but I'm sure it's still illegal,...

Re: Screen capture of a video file

just the black box comes up. I don't know anything about Windows ... but I think I saw someone answer this question before either here or at jdorama.com ... and I believe the answer had to do with turning off video hardware acceleration. Once you are done with the capture, you can turn it back on. ...

Well, I strongly disagree :) I feel that people should educate themselves about the law so they can make informed decisions. Perhaps we should just leave it there.

Nor do i think it is relevant because we are talking about j-movies. I'm sorry, I thought it was relevant because the MPAA is an American institution, and I believe the d-addicts site is hosted by an American ISP, and they have already shut down d-addicts once. What i was trying to argue is that th...

First, sharing is wrong. Let me ask you, boys and girls, a simple question: have you ever borrowed a book from a friend orat the library? Do you think it was ok? The author in this case doesn't receive any additional revenue. Still you don't think it was wrong? Do i hear you saying that people have...

I'm confused. I went to check on my movie Green Tea and it's gone already. But the korean movies are still there. So d-addicts is going to keep seeding kmovies or the cleaning staff just hasn't gotten around to killing the kmovie torrents yet? I believe Ruroshin explained in another thread that the...

I think animesuki is just an aggregator, and the batch torrent is at anime-otakus:

It is the same batch torrent as at FOB.

Well hell! God dangit! After all that work making the poll and getting the picture in place, it turns out you're right. It is indeed the same version.

Re: You're under arrest a/k/a Taiho shichauzo

How many are interested in this j-drama? It's 9 episodes. I'm getting it from ed2k network and was thinking of seeding it here at d-addicts if there's enough interest. Seems to be from DVD source with hard coded fan e-subs, but the ripper used heavy compression to make each episode around 220+MB. I...

Yes, it was completed, with 6 episodes, I believe, but episode 5 was corrupt and I was never able to get a good version.

So I'd be interested in seeing a replay :)
