...publishers, which including Kodansha, in trying to impose a new law by creating "neighboring copyright", for people who are not creator but has a hand in "helping" the creation of the work gets automatic right, meaning editors, researchers, printers, etc. or plain speaking, a power grab by the publishers to take right away from the author, this is something very serious and has long unforeseen consequences if pass through, (the publisher can and will go after second hand creation/dojin without need to ask the permission of the author, etc. (it was one of the state benefits of this law) meaning the end of dojinshi as we know it., or after a serial is over the author can not retain exclusive right to it while the publisher can hold onto to it forever to keep making money for itself, etc.)...
many series are ending abruptedly these days (last in date : Claymore this week), maybe out of concern for this utterly stupid reaction of the copyist-monks, trying to oppose the printing industry...

this law is truly terrifying
I cannot imagine if other series have the same fate as dragon ball with dragon ball GT imagine BAA gt? ouch dreadful.
I hope Claymore is not really finished...it still had so much to cover.
