Wuxiaworld makes a more formal response Wuxiaworld's Formal Response (With Screenshots) This will be updated as things develop. -remy ============= Below is the original post ============= Please read http://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/wuxiaworld-official-response-to-qidians-libelous-claims.37625/ and http://forum.novelupdates.com/threads/licensing-issues-of-wuxiaworld.37613/ carefully, before stating your facts and ideas. At the beginning when Qidian was about to release I had a feeling that this will happen. It's no surprise since there's big money to translating novels and the profit margins are still growing, but what makes this so attractive is it's an unlimited source of Entertainment. There will be more novels in the future and more fans being attracted. Big business like Qidian are ambitious since they only care about one thing, which is profit. Don't get fooled by claims of this is for the good of novels... Their main goal is to be the only translator site, while profiting of subscriptions, and cash per word. The first step of their plan is first to Conquer WW since WW is the leading and leader of this novel community which started it all, and I guarantee you the rest will soon follow after, like GravityTales and Volarenovels. It's a scare tactic really, if they can take down WW, the rest would falter. I sincerely hope you guys support WW and other independent translators, because once their gone, this community will also disappear. Reading novels will also be a lot more hectic, everyone who's broke would have to resort to reading in pirated websites or in secret forums while never having the comradeship feeling, commenting, and enjoying novels with fellow readers. (And if Qidian doesn't make any profit since tons of pirate sites will popup attracting everyone to read who feels wronged or doesn't care, Qidian will stop translating and after they monopolize all the novels for themselves.) The main thing you guys need to realize is that they don't have actual rights to do this, legal and moral. Lets protect our Community.
