snb69 3:15a People update things?
Yeah, so it has been brought to my attention that I have neglected to do anything to the site for a while. So I took some time and updated the upcoming releases on the right. You might notice less DVD's than normal. That is not due to a lack of upcoming releases, but less of the releases actually interest me. Also, I have been more interested in manga as of late. So I might try to start putting more manga on the site.
snb69 7:00 p minor updates
It has been a while since I have had time to do any updating. So, I updated the release dates on the side menu, and added some select manga release dates as well. Enjoy.

snb69 2:51p site misshaps
Trying to use my home internet connection to lessen the load of my tripod account seems to have backfired today. It seems my ip changed and the files that were linked to it were not available. I have returned to using the onsite versions of the files so the site should look ok. I am sorry for those that have had trouble viewing the site these past few weeks. It seems that more and more people are coming to the site, and my bandwidth on Tripod is not sufficient. Eventually I would like to fix this problem, but I am not in the situation to do so yet.

snb69 11:58p Macross legal battle
According to ANN:
In a serious legal blow to Studio Nue, widely perceived as the original creators and rightful owners of Macross, the Tokyo district court today ruled that the rights associated with authorship, the "author's right," for the first Macross series, belong to Tatsunoko Productions, not Studio Nue. Head judge Toshiaki Inamura explained, "After Studio Nue planned the project, the general director was engaged creatively in producing the series entirely. Tatsunoko made a contract with each staff member and managed the production." Japanese copyright law gives ownership to the company when the body of work is created by its employees (or by people under contract) as a part of their duties. Therefore, the property right are guaranteed to the production company, not the planner(s) nor the director(s). In October 2002 the Tokyo district court ruled that the rights to the design of the Valkery belong to Studio Nue.
