**** Viz.

Post by Seiveil on Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:57 am

As of today, NarutoFan is now known as AniFreak by Viz orders from copyright.

I don't really appreciate Viz doing this right after the NF incident. It doesn't seem fair, and I don't really like how a forum I've been on for four and a half years is suddenly "needed" to be changed just for having Naruto in it's name. It also has Fan in it's name, so that obviously says it's not acting as an official forum. Those idiots just want money, so I'm completely disowning the damn site.

I especially don't like the fact that Viz only targeted that certain forum, instead of going after every single other one with Naruto in it's domain. It doesn't seem fair; to me, it sounds like a backlash, and I'm really suspicous over what's actually going on. NF is one of the largest forums ever, we know that, but why not go after the first largest in the world, or one of those above NF?

I'm not sure what's exactly happening and why, and I really don't want to get a headache trying to find out.

That is all.

I worked my way around the database. So basically I can hack however and whatever I want. Plus, this is my forum, there's always a way around it if you're the founder.

Mhmm....so basically....you're PMSing over a name change on a forum? Suspect

No. I'm basically saying I'm pissed off that NarutoFAN needs to be changed for copyright to douches who only care about money. NF is a FAN site, and Viz are being dipshits about it since they don't like NF being more popular than them.

What we need to do is calm down. Who gives a crap if a name was changed? So what if they're rivals?

We got this forum, so no need to sink as low as complain over a fucking NAME.

Shut up, Link. >.> You're from Zelda, WTF are you talking about? You ARE a goody two-shoes.

Anyway, calm the fuck down Sei. Damn, when you PMS it's kinda hard to talk to you.

Kidou, I'm giving you a warning; not just because Len is my boyfriend, but because you called him that certain word that is very offending against gays.

Do not do it again.

Also, I'm giving Len one as well; don't instigate an argument then say he went out of control, since you started it.

AHEM, well, I'm none too happy about this change either, but I will say Sei is fully able to be upset; they changed something with no reason, so it's only logical she'd be angry.

Even if there was, we still wouldn't be able to change it back. Viz are money hungry and won't hesitate to actually sue for he name to be changed again. :\

The thing is, Viz is only looking at NF (now AF) because Viz's forum members raided NF, and Viz punished NF for it, making them give away their domain.

All other forums with the word Naruto in it aren't subject to copyright, but NarutoFan was.

Yes, but NF also raided Viz, so it's only logical Viz, being a company, took revenge on them as punishment.

I think it's stupid, but I don't mind it. I haven't gone to NF in years.

That's only because Viz raided them first out of random. NF just wanted them to see how annoying it is to have people being disruptive and annoying somewhere they don't need to be.

You make a good point, but neither should be annoying to each other just to prove a point. The main issue here, is why they copyrighted a name on one single forum, when many others have the same thing.

They went for the most popular one because it was the only way to get more members on their own site.

I see. I'm no expert in politics, or business for that matter, but I can see them doing that for their own profit. I mean, one Bleach DVD is over 40 dollars, and a Naruto boxset is 70+....they rip people off.

But I say this discussion is over. *locked*
