Comment on Jump Manga Suspended for Tracing by Anonymous:

Common, nowaday, everything you can see is “copyrithed”, that a hell for do anything…
There is so much awesome stuff on Internet, so much think to do or learn for “free”, but everyone need his little copyright. Its that “share” of internet wich gives his power, everyone can use or be help by some others works, that the best.

You prefer everything copyrithed, should the states copyright the air when we breath, the ground when we walk or the sun when you wanna see something ? XD.
Should the pen manufacturer copyright the manga because the mangaka use his pen ?

Photograph sell their photos books or exposed them, wo cares about be inspire ou copie hardly the photo involved with our pen ? …
Imagine only the huge time take to do a full and realistic background with your own mind when you have to draw thousand of pictures during the month…

(and sry for my crappy english^^)

    Yeah, so what… it could be considered the style. Some of the work is OBVIOUSLY traced/photoshopped. The only REAL issue is copyrights. For example, if he took a picture of a city – then converted into a manga style, its his. Taking someone else’s photo and doing the conversion… a no-no.
