scans_daily suspended
For all members of scans_daily: the community has been suspended for posting copyrighted material without the permission of copyright holders, which is against LiveJournal's ToS. Before you ask:

1) At this time we don't know who made the complaint. But guys, we don't want this to turn into a witch hunt.

2) No, we don't have backups, but we're looking into recovering our entries. ETA: pandanoai made a backup early this month. You'll need this to view it. acroamatica has it mirrored here.

3) skalja set up a backup comm on insanejournal some time ago. If you're in dire need of scans, go here for now. ETA: A while ago, sir_razorback set up a message board for the comm here. comics_scans is another scan comm on eljay. Their rules and culture are a bit different from ours. If you join, be sure to read the userinfo before posting. stubbleupdate has set up noscans_daily. Please join, so we can keep our community together.

4) No, this will not be the end of us. Vive les scans!

5) ETA: Since people are asking about eljay's stance on fair use, from the TOS:

LiveJournal and its designates shall have the right, but not the obligation, to remove any content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable, or that infringes or is alleged to infringe intellectual property rights. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content. Furthermore, LiveJournal reserves the right to limit access to your journal, if found in violation of the TOS, including without limitation the Member Conduct described below, by removing the journal and related user information from the member directory, search engine, and all other methods used in conjunction with finding LiveJournal's users.


[members agree not to] Upload, post or otherwise transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party

ETA: Guys, do me a favour and link to this post in your personal journals/blogs/whatever. I don't want people to get misinformation. I'm monitoring the comments and will be around to answer questions.

ETA: Update post here.

The mod team is looking at our options; check this space for updates.

Um, if we're talking about the issue of X-Factor most recently posted, the entire issue WAS NOT posted. It was within scans_daily's limits of how much could be posted, if not the mods would have taken care of it.

In fact, I wouldn't have bought that issue if it wasn't for that post. Now I'm sorry I did. PAD doesn't deserve my money.

For the record, I fully believe that I have every right to be pissed at him because:

A - As I said, the entire issue was NOT posted


B - All PAD had to do was write the mods and ask that his work not be allowed on scans_daily. Obviously they would have complied rather than have him act like a total diva prick and get the whole community killed. The scans_daily mods have always been EXTREMELY respectful to the wishes of the creators.

And FYI, having the legal and ethical right? Does not make him less of a dick. If he had been willing to talk to us instead of throwing a tantrum things could have worked out for everyone. Now we're without a community and PAD, I'd imagine, is going to lose a lot of fans (and hopefully business).
