Missed It: Manga Pirates Lawsuit

I can't tell if this is more, less or exactly as important as it seems, but I wanted to note this lawsuit by a group of manga artists against the people behind an illegal downloads site. At the very least, it seems to me to set a bar for what a certain group of artists will and won't be willing to accept in terms of the uploading of copyrighted material, which is interesting in the sense that uploading material has a huge role in that culture and with such artists. It kind of reminds me of the relationship professional sports has to gambling, although if I just made you scowl by making that comparison I'll admit it's a glib one.
