Live Journal Scans_Daily shut down
The message on Live Journal is very simple:
This journal has been suspended.
And with that, it’s gone and the comics community has changed.
And before anyone asks, no, Peter David isn’t responsible for drawing attention to the powers that be any more than Dirk Deppey is responsible for posting a link to it almost every day for years in a news publication. If you post enough stuff on there and you don’t own the copyright, your foot shall slide in due time; sooner or later you will get noticed and the hammer will fall.
Before you ask, yes, I posted stuff to scans_daily to promote The Original Johnson, because it’s a large community of readers. But ComicMix controls the rights to the book and used it for promotion.
I hope that scans_daily can reconstitute, but remember, to stay outside the law, you gotta be honest.
If any of the group administrators would like to contact us to comment or for an interview, please feel free.
