    On a plane, so I'll be brief. Hell, I haven't even read through their entire nonsense thread yet. QI apparently follows the Trump model of there being no such thing as bad publicity. In short: 24 hours ago, QI sent DMCAs to Wuxiaworld's hosting servers (Linode) and Cloudflare requesting the entire Wuxiaworld site be taken offline. Now, as of a few hours ago, they copy all Wuxiaworld content over onto their own site and announce it is there for everyone to read. You tell me what their goal is?

    If QI really believed they were freely able to post these translations, why would they have sent me an email demanding that I give them to them to post? If they truly believed they had these rights, why would they have emailed our translators over the past two months trying to buy them? If they truly "couldn't get into contact" with me, why is it that they have been sending me lawyer notices while ignoring my responses?

    Nearly every word they are posting is lies, and I'm sick of their shit, honestly. This will be addresssed through courts, through the newspapers, and through every legal measure and avenue available to me. At this point, I just want to ask NUF, Tony and NUF readers; I understand your principles of neutrality, but are you really going to still remain "neutral" when one site is copying all content from another site, lying to your faces, and trying to shut down other sites?

    Is this still a forum and a website by fans for fans?

    I won't be able to respond for a few hours, about to take off. Screw these guys.

    that's a shitty qidian move.

    dmca was understandable- but copying other people's translation is not fine.

    pretty much the tl:dr of that thread is that they own all rights, they don't give a fuck about copying and pasting the translations from the WW translators without their permission and are calling wolf at ww for being the bad guy even though fucking Qidian DCMA ww cuz ren wouldn't give them the chapters directly.

    The solution is quite simple really..
    WW sue all the coppied translated content that is stolen.
    WW bring down all novels that have qidian as source.
    WW ban any qidian sourced novels from here on out on the site.. exclude 17k and the likes.
    Qidian give the huge paywall.
    NU gets cleaned of every qidian content there is because pay to read are against NU policy.

    People that likes qi content can pay for it to qidian.
    People that dislike qi content can get a qidian free NU to browse from.

    Win-win

    If QI doesn't have either the authors approval, or the approval of the publishing company hired by said authors, then they don't have any legal avenue to claim the work of others. Translations have always been a grey area, but using bullying tactics and the like is still bad mojo. And personally I'm a Wuxiaworld fan.

    Let me know if there's some sort of petition or the like that comes up. I'd sign it.
