    all got deleted. Qidian International "brought" GT so they must not involve themselves with novels not related to Qidian

    There's probably an announcement somewhere on Gravity Tales.
    That doesn't even make sense.

    Well qidian has teamed up with gravity tales, meaning that since they are now an actual business, it would be breaking so many copyright laws and licensing laws for gravity to retain the novels. They are however going into talks to be able to host said novels on their site. So yeah... apparently it was a "sign of good faith"

    Yeah the opposite is true too apparently , though less extreme , when in korean novels they will show the chinese in a negative manner if they have the chance , though its alot more subtle

    All novels show negative manners to other country beside it's origin. You know how many times CN novels trash talk Japs, Korean, American and the rest of the world but other countries that Trash Chinese ex. Korean Novels, They do not tolerate that and demand to shut it down. GT = QI = GTFO all other genre of novels.

    Wow these threads just keep coming~

    Qidian isn't allowed to host translations of novels from other companies without license. What qidian was doing to others is happening to them~

    qidian is in the middle of lawsuit with wuxiaworld about hosting without the consent of right to the work, if they host korean and other company works that they don't have lincence that lawsuit would end quite quickly

    probably not. don't get your hope too high. the Korean probably choose to start another QI of their own version, since if QI really want those copyright it must be pretty damn worth the money that, the Korean, as we know from a lot of novel is rather driven mad on wealth

    Lets not enter country/racial disputes...
    Nothing points that the series are gone due to any kind of hate but licensing issues!!

    Since QI is GT parent company they have legal responsibility over what GT has on their site...
    From my PoV it looks very bad if a company lists unlicensed stuff from other similar companies... Whoever they are...
    Thats why Zhang Long and others are also gone
