Going Beyond Scanlations

Kotaku has a great piece about how people working at producing “scanlations” (the unauthorized scanning and translation of manga) who are now trying to get publishers to actually hire them. Interesting to see the struggle happening — as well as the view by some Japanese publishers that when something gets scanlated, that it may no longer be worth publishing a proper edition in that language.
