And just out of curiosity... how the heck did you discover that people was selling printings of baka-tsuki translations of SAO?

Cause a lot of people don't know how to use the interwebs? A lot of people pay for fansubs and don't even know about fansubs.

Let's just say that the alternate forums has been complaining to us about how some people are blatantly selling stuff on other forums while the mods aren't doing anything about it. It's on our facebook page, btw. I just thought I needed to flex a little muscle here...

So just because of some guy from my country, volume 9 was removed from baka-tsuki?
Can we even still hope for volume 10 to be translated?
Oh god, why not just kill that person who tend to sell free stuff that available on internet...

He must have much free time to check every forum on internet. I'm from indonesia, and I'm a member in indowebster. But I didn't even know about that stuff, until I visited the SAO LN thread. And saw tehping posts.

Huh. So wait, the whole fandom suffers because of this?

My stomach just literally churns and my heart feels quite heavy.

I'd like to apologize on the behalf of my fellow country man.. I know it's not much but I felt really ashamed when I heard the news.. Even when you consider that the use of internet wasn't widespread in Indonesia

Couldn't find the announcement on BT, but if you guys haven't contacted the authorities/stopped the people who are selling the English translations, wouldn't taking down volumes 9 and 10 online just increase their sales?

Oh, I just personally went down to their forums to demand that they take them down, though with some language barriers...

In actuality translating light novels isn't all that legal in the first place. Only the publishers have the right to DMCA. The only problem is whoever selling this is going to cause a problem for B-T. Publishers are going to start to think that B-T is selling translated versions of their novels and they might sue.

Well it's not like the ebook files are going to disappear from torrents -- you can still find the BT versions of Haruhi Suzumiya out there, and that got taken down years ago.

Publishers can still go after them for unlicensed books. I know Square Enix made MangaFox remove a bunch of titles that have no official English version. About the worst thing that could happen to BT is for Dengeki Bunko to notice what they're doing and send them a DMCA. Even if they don't seek financial damages, that would leave maybe three novels on BT.

looks like the situation has been resolved
http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/in...:Miscellaneous
but volume 9 is going remain deleted. Not like we not be able to read volume 9 again. There are plenty of pdf versions online and according to Ping serves as a warning.

Of course volume 10 will still be translated but just not by Teh ping and honestly I don't blame him given how some in the fandom have treated him
Given how popular the light novel, is I still expect it will be translated eventually but it won't be translated at Teh Ping's god like speed and that a bits disappointing but it is fine. Translators are doing this for free and they can work on whatever project they want at the pace they want.

To Teh Ping Thanks for translating this series and I hope you can move on another series where your work can appreciated without this much rage when you do something they don't like.
