    FAQ
    What is DMCA?
    The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). In order to prevent illegal use of copyrighted manga/anime, it is important to use only sources that are acceptable.

    What qualifies as illegal scans?
    Scanlators upload their scans of manga pages and disperse them illegally on various sites without permission from the creator.

    What sources are allowed?
    Scans posted must be from approved sources. Any site that offers illegal scans is not allowed.


    Try not to post about blocked domains/streams/torrents.

    How many pages of scans are allowed?
    Typically, 3-6 pages are safe; 15 pages or complete albums are not. If you're not sure, feel free to confirm with a moderator about what is acceptable.

    Can I post spoiler images/text/panels?

    Yes. However, the above still applies - refrain from posting entire spoilers.

    Can I post videos to episodes?

    You can. Just not the entire episode.

    Can I post translation text?
    Yes.

    If I post an unofficial link what are the consequences?
    Ask globbaflorkdorkdorknork. Most likely, your post will be deleted.

    I derped, didn't realize that was added that in the draft. I'll remove it since the legal sources are in this very thread.

    This would supersede the previous rule that was established for posting scans/scenes of anime/manga, meaning any posts that contain material outside of the legal sources are not allowed, at all, correct?
