###Crunchyroll, TV Tokyo Sue YouTube Users for Unauthorized Anime Uploading
posted on 2011-09-21 12:45 EDT
13 defendants accused of uploading Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, Bleach episodes


#25

This is the most ironic thing I’ve heard in quite sometime. Oh man my eyes are in tears from loss of breath from laughing so hard.


#26

I think that they should have done this as well as go after the other pirate streaming sites that have done the same thing to them. This will show the "fan"subbers that the companies that stream legally mean business.

I am happy that Crunchyroll and TV Tokyo are taking such an action against the 13 people who have uploaded Naruto and Bleach on Youtube.


#27

Hmmm…not sure how I should react to this one. It’s more like someone’s trying to “make an attempt” without really doing anything. Trying to stop “unauthorized” streaming would be like trying to dam the Amazon with pebbles.

This is interesting. I wonder how much will change.

On a side note, I had to smile when I saw “TCG” in the article. For a minute there, I thought Coffee God was involved. :silly:

My apologies, Coffee God!

###Anime-Planet: ANIME-PLANET.COM PARTNERS WITH CRUNCHYROLL TO PROVIDE IN-DEPTH VIDEO INTEGRATION
Feb 24, 2015


#36

So the only benefit is the auto-updating of this “shows I’ve watched” list?

…I haven’t been to this Anime Planet site in years.


#37

The true “benefit” lies in possibly getting more people to watch “legally” streamed anime rather than downloading it.


#38

There’s a manga CR has that AP appears to know nothing about. And lack for wiki pages on it makes it hard to see if AP might have it under a different spelling or not. Hoping that this might help with that at least.


#39

-edit-

Man, I really need to learn how to read!

What manga is that?


#40

Okitenemuru

Only 3 chapters in with the 4th comping out Tuesday.

Seems CR got more back chapters of stuff, so I can plow through and catch up. Time to find time to read them.

Crunchyroll Streaming Service Down Amid DDoS Attack

posted on 2014-12-30 16:45 EST

Over 400,000 paid subscribers affected

The Crunchyroll streaming service announced on Tuesday that it is currently down due to a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack “of the same magnitude” as those recently targeted towards Sony and Microsoft consoles. Crunchyroll service went down at approximately 4:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday.

DDoS attacks against Sony and Microsoft started on Christmas Day and made services on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles unavailable for approximately three days. A hacking group known as Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Crunchyroll has over 400,000 reported paid subscribers.


#43

I guess that explains it.


#44

Good to know. I was wondering.

ANN seemed to be the victim of one as well as a while ago I was getting CloudFlare “Server is down” errors and now when I visit the site for the first time in a new browser session my browser has to be authenticated by CloudFlare before it lets me visit the site.

Maybe its a racket…


#45

Such a shame this keeps happening.

Crunchyroll Streaming Service, Website Back Online

Service went down on Tuesday due to DDoS attacks

The Crunchyroll website and apps are back online after going down at about 4:00 a.m. EST on Tuesday. Crunchyroll announced later on Tuesday that the cause was a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack “of the same magnitude” as those recently targeted towards Sony and Microsoft consoles.

DDoS attacks against Sony and Microsoft started on Christmas Day and made services on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles unavailable for approximately three days. A group known as Lizard Squad claimed responsibility for the attacks.
