    I like a bit of weird in my Bond stories (some of the continuation novels for instance) but this is just too weird for even me. You have to draw the line somewhere. :)

    Sorry to be late to the thread, but can someone explain to me how does the copryright law works for this?

    How can Japan make a CR adaptation but not the rest of the world? Or ...can anyone make a CR-inspired media and Japan is the only place to use this???

    I dont' get it

    With the popularity (or at least regular activity) of discussion, I expect a watchalong is possible.

    I thought there were lawyers on this forum.

    Looks like Eon need one of those transmission jammers that the US used against Saddam Hussein to block his speeches during the invasion of Iraq in 2003!

    It's a wonderfull news. 
    How on Earth is that legal

    I don't see why it wouldn't be. Internet is not the property of any country or private movie entreprise ; there is no owner. In Japan, Fleming book are public domain and anybody can adapt them in theatre. And the creators of theatre play can post it on internet from Japan if they want. They don't have to include a way for to prevent any people from other country to watch and nothing prevent them to do the adaptation in any langage they want (and even if it was the case : Fleming novel are in english, so it would be valid to have english text/subs), probably no (stupid) local or international law say they have to so (and even if there was: you would still can use a VPN).

    Just immagine if it was otherwise, if the whole internet must conform to the individual laws of every country in the world : there will be no internet cause North Korean and religious countries would oppose and remove 90% of it's worldwide content that enfreign their locals laws.
