    yup and pacnet also, more users switching over ??

    if people cannot download anime (not that im encouraging because i buy my favourite animes ), then why did they even take up fast internet downloading service providers like starhub's cable service or singnet's broadband ?

    i find this whole Odex saga is just so stupid. lets see how people retaliate now.

    I think no one has any doubt that downloading of those anime is illegal. However, what Odex should have done is to fire a warning salvo to those downloaders before threatening to sue them. Many of these downloaders are young and underage, and may not have known the grave consequence of their act. They should have taken this opportunity to educate the offenders, and not just slapping them with a penalty.

    This kind of tactics is just what makes it hard for the general public to swallow. It is liken to seeing strong adults beating up these seemingly defenseless youngsters, it is disgusting. This is bullying at its worst.

    Why should they make the parents pay for something their children committed? Simply because the parents are the children's guardian? If this is so, then the children shouldn't be harshly penalised simply they are still young and may not know what they are doing, and hence they need guardians and guidance right? Thus, the 'punishment' that Odex bestowed upon these youngsters, in my opinion, is definitely too harsh and ill conceived.

    Having the director of the company to proclaim in public forums that he is out to get them and gloat about it, truly speaks for the kind of ugly stuff this bloke is made up of. He needs to grow up himself first.

    If my child is involved, I'll definitely fight tooth and nail with these bullies.

    Ironically, I believe the director involved is married, supposedly with kids now.

    His neighbours will be looking at him with a strange look.

    BTW, someone was kind enuff to record the Live 938 Talkback on the Odex Fiasco.

    Probably read too much anime himself, so hasn't grown out of his own juvenile behaviour yet.

    Well, Singnet and Starhub were served court orders, so it is up to the ISPs to sue Odex, but of course all this pending on an appeal by Odex against the Pacnet ruling.

    Which Odex almost certainly will.

    i think it's an excellent twist here that twisted the entire saga upside down, from start already mentioned that Odex does not seem like the right organisation to carry out such raids

    you should ask your anime contacts if they even know of them at all or what they think of the fiasco, esp with the Gamesmart and i have a dream revelation.

    I'm just waiting for the appeal to go Pacnet's way.

    Then it gives us an excuse to post "xedo double-6-ed! (o.o)y"
