Update - Watermarking

Hello all,
Most regulars to this site know that the reason we started watermarking our releases to begin with, was due to the fact that a certain website was claiming our work as their own.

It has come to our attention that our video watermarks are now being blurred deliberately to mask the origin of our translation work with the intent to drive traffic to another Gaki blog site.

You can see our blurred watermarks at the below Youtube links:

Example 1
Example 2
Example 3

I'm sure some of you (or maybe all of you lol) could careless about this matter, but, I take this pretty seriously.   Not so much for me, but for the rest of my team that put in their time and effort to produce translations for everyone to enjoy.  Stealing of their work is uncalled for and I will discuss with the rest of the team on how they would like to proceed.

If we decide to do anything further, whether it be slowing down releases or stopping all together, I will post another update.

  8. we could report his youtube videos and it will get banned ( since the copy right thing ) .

    at least it will stop him for a while .

    or you could do like some of the animes , post your copyrights ( or your site ) in the middle of the video and it pop up every now and then near the faces or the subs , He can`t stop that =) .

  9. He hasn't posted anything new on his website in ages, so I don't think he's serious competition. Just ignore it and continue to produce high quality videos :D

  11. It's kinda sad this happening.... Shibata comunity could go and flag the videos or something like that. We are just waiting your orders commander!

  12. Done, done and done. Flagged all three vids for:
    1. Animal cruelty
    2. Teen violence
    3. Sexual content - suggestive but no nudity.

    I don't understand why those pricks can't just say thanks and give Zurui and his team the massive credit that is due.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can absolutely understand your position, even if it means that we, the users, will not see any new work in the future. Stand your ground!

  14. Things like this are just plain sad and pathetic. Now it's gotten to the inevitable where it's going to affect your releases. What a pathetic piece of shit. This is such a very low move. Fuck you, go die you fucking cunt. May any people close to you be stolen from your disgusting self. Of course Zurui you should just take this seriously, these are all effort ripped off and went to waste. Why the fuck does the people visit or view his blog or whatever the fuck he has anyway? The mass should have gotten aware already that Zurui's blog is the fucking source of all. Fuck you ripper, you should get kicked out of the internet for eternity.

  15. If you know of any more youtube links, you can always let us know and we'll dislike and report them :)

  16. ^that, or scrolling watermark, or make the watermark pop up on different corners every now and then. it can still be removed, but it's harder to do without heavily damaging the video. and also very obvious to the viewers. but like you said, some people just couldn't care.

    but putting it in the middle might be best, maybe just put this site address on smaller font near the on-screen japanese text when they appear.

    and please don't stop

    ReplyDelete
  17. I suggest putting a very light, transparent watermark over the whole video for a couple of seconds so that the viewer can still see the video, but is also aware of who's it is.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would suggest you continue to post your videos, there is no wait to stop pirates on the internet but if you show us who is doing this we will gladly flag them out and give them negative marks. Also the more your work is spread around the higher chances of a person finding your actual blog and promoting interest in downtown.

    I wouldn't be too offended where you don't want to work anymore its just something everyone has to deal with in their own way. - a previous donator.

  19. There are no videos anymore.

    1. Yah he removed them because of all the dislikes and negative comments his channel is watchgakinotsukai3 watchgakinotsukai2 and thai20king

      Delete
    2. His videos are back up, but comments are still disabled. I was watching one until I realized my mistake. Says it's been up since April of 2012. Disliked it and stopped watching it. Now trying to navigate gakifiles to find the original one.

  20. your concern and frustration is understandable and i feel angry myself. i could talk shit about his blog but we all have probably already seen it and thought the same. i have no words to describe my disrespectful feelings towards that person. i'm sure we all could wear out our keyboards on the subject of sir cunt-face. maybe hes just a kid or sumthin doesnt realize the work and effort involved. whatever happens we couldn't thank you enough for all the work that has been done. My most sincere proclamation of appreciation.

  21. KEEP IT UP ZURUI!!! I cant tell you how many bookmarks i have for gaki no tsukai and like wise shows and a majorit have been from gaki-no-tsukai.com and lead me to you, shibatabread or echie.

  22. He still has the videos up on his thai20king channel.

  23. Please please please dont stop translating, you have no idea how much it is appreciated by people from all across the world.
    Much love <3 from Denmark

  24. He's now stopped ratings, comments and blocking anyone who says anything about his thievery.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Please don't stop translating.

    Try adding more watermarks, in bright colors (like red, blue) that pop up at various points during the clips. Right in the middle of the screen.

    That way the bastard can't blur it out.


    Someone here should crash his crappy site too.

  26. Slow down or stop altogether? Huh? Why do the viewers get punished for what these people are doing? I might sound unappreciative for what you guys do, but I'm definitely not. I just really don't understand your reasoning.

    1. It really is up to my timers because they do most of the work. If they want to stop, then the releases will definitely slow down.

  27. Thanks everyone for the support. I really don't want this to blow out of proportion, and would like to see everyone get to enjoy our work. I wouldn't be so touchy about this situation if he hadn't blurred the watermark. It was fine when he was posting our work on Youtube (yes, I knew about his channels for awhile) while leaving the watermarks as an acknowledgement. My timers have decided to try a scrolling watermark. If this doesn't solve the issue, I'll see what they want to do. I'll be posting a new release after finishing up this comment. Thanks again, z

  28. Don't stop subbing, I implore you guys. Think of this: stopping you may what this thaiking guy wants. "Keep calm and carry on."

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have PMed Thai20King on Youtube and told him of my disapproval of his actions.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Please don't stop translating and working on these episodes. You have a whole community of fans who will support you.

    ReplyDelete
  31. wow what an arse!
    I checked out "his" page and he is making money off you guys with adify and he is also making money off anime subbers too with "his" anime page
    (I wonder if the anime communities know this?)
    Also his blog page is stolen work from other peoples blogs!!!!!

    I am all for people uploading shows to spread the love but to claim them as your own and to make money from it is low. All we have to do as a community is let others know to not go there.

    Though Zurui have you posted this in the Gaki forum?

    If not I would so more people know.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like you were successful in getting those videos down! Just let us, your fans, know about anyone stealing your work and we'll heckle them until they let up. Keep up the good work, I've been a loyal but silent fan for the past couple of years! You guys are fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Plz try look for a solution instead of stopping. Youre my only source of fresh new gaki videos i have. If you guys stop i wont get my gaki fix and probably die! So if theres anything the fans could do, we would all be happy to help!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Zurui this was expected to come. As you grow in popularity and influence you are destined to gain more enemies. Don't stop because of this. Keep on going and don't quit

    ReplyDelete
  35. "This video has been removed by the user."
    WOOOO! Anyways, like some of the others said, just let us, your supporters know that someone is stealing your work and we'll try to help take it down. We don't want you to stop subbing and releasing all the glory. :/
