Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

YEP! THIS AGAIN! This issue is really important to me so I decided to do some research and be informed about what it means and what I can do. This is what I learned:

- The European Union is protected by a set of laws regarding Data Protection (my country also has laws regarding the protection of personal data)
- The US is pressuring the EU to change these laws (probably because ACTA is in direct violation of them)
- The US has made a so called "black list" of countries with poor intellectual property laws and has used it to pressure some European countries into passing unconstitutional laws
- The European Commission is doubting the legal grounds of the Data Retention Directive (The EU has asked my country to align to the European law regarding data retention, but the Senate unanimously voted against it in december)
- THE US WILL FORMALLY GIVE THE DOSSIER TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT IN FEBRUARY!!

(P.S. I have no grudge against the American people as a whole, so don't misunderstand! I'm referring strictly to those supporting these laws )

Tsugou no Ii Kimi by Yashiki Yukari sensei

Uhm, we completed translating the lelf chapters nearly 2 years ago, such a long time huh?! Anyway, this will be the last thing we release ^^
Ah, there is someone who provided the raw for us but we lost that email and didn't remember who that is. So we couldn't take credits for that person, so sorry about that. Please, contact me if you are the one and want your name on the credits page. We will fix it ^^






Tsugou no Ii Kimi chap 1 and 2 was released by Moya.
Tsugou no Ii Kimi chap 3, 4 and extra (end):

Note: we're doing this for fun so if you don't enjoy reading our work, then just ignore it, no need to tell us that. Thanks a lot.

Vol 5 of Shitsuren Mania

Uhm, it's been a long time since the last release... We've been depressed and discouraged by some negative feedback. We know our releases are full with grammar/vocabulary mistakes. Yet, I personally don't think those people can criticize us because of these. We spent lots of time and efforts doing these so we can't put more time; we still have our personal life.

Furthermore, it's not like we're doing a business and ask for your money or something. Thus, ignore our releases if you don't want to read, no need to tell us about how bad they are or what we should do. It's really tiring!!! It's not like that we have a duty to make you all satisfy...

You may think that we're bitches but just put yourself in our shoes, then u'll know how hard it was for us to get those complaints!!!

Anyway, here is the whole volume - vol 5 of Shitsuren Mania:
