Not related but invloves anime. Is anyone seeing on Twitter that [email protected] and [email protected] are dead due to Japan's new very strict copyright law? So apparently JP's ultra strict copyright law applies not just in Japan but outside Japan. Am I the only one who thinks that strict copyright law may do more harm than good?[/i]

While I may not give you all of the validation that you requested, I do agree with the notion that the newly passed copyright law is bad. Honestly, I'd rather see copyright gone completely, that does not mean however that I care about what happened to a site as despicable as Kiss. The owners are way worse than CR in the way they treat their staff, while the quality of the service gets sacrificed for the sake of raking in more profit.

I'm more shocked people would use those sites than the other way. But no real loss.

If all pirated anime/manga sites shut down, that means access to watch animes and reading mangas will be more harder and inaccessible. Even legal sites(both anime and manga) aren't helpful because most animes (and mangas) in many countries(excluded the US) are region locked, which it makes watching animes reading mangas legally harder. And that's why I worry about JP's strict copyright laws.

And about mangas, since MangaPlus exict but there no legal manga sites to read non-WSJ mangas like Attack on Titan, One Punch Man, Detective Conan, Komi-San Can't Communicate, Teasing Master Takagi-san.

I for one now have to figure out where to read Kengan Omega, Ragna Crimson, & Shumatsu no Walkure because neither title is localized by any company. Indeed the loss of these sites means more difficulty in reading the obscure series.

Working conditions for animators in Japan is quite horrible. Will these strict policies, that somewhat prevent piracy of the content, help generate more revenue for the industry, and will the animators benefit from this?

Not at all, because they don't hold the rights to their own works. The actual owners make money by underpaying them and the reason they're capable of doing that is precisely because copyright law allows them to treat the work like their private property and appropriate the labor of the artists. Studios are like any other worker, they're paid to make the commodity and then the employer takes the remaining money generated from the sales.
