o LEGALITY OF COPYING ANIME

By virtue of trade agreements between the US and Japan, it is illegal in the
US to distribute copies of anime and anime-related material without having
permission from the copyright holder, regardless of whether or not any fee is
charged.

Copyrights are intended to make sure that the author of the work receives
appropriate compensation for his/her job.  Some people consider the copying
of anime a morally corrupt practice, as the author of the work is not being
paid. There have been several counter-arguments to this by anime fans, such
as:

  - It is unlikely that the Japanese companies will sue the fan, as this
    practice creates a demand for other anime-related products, which
    increases their sales.

  - The fan is against profiting from this activity, and in some cases even
    boycotts and denounces any people who are doing it for profit.

  - These features are far too expensive/hard-to-find for the fan to acquire
    them by other means.

Regardless of any moral or economical justifications, the fact is that
copying of anime features is illegal under US law.  If the fan resorts to
this method to obtain anime material, he/she should be aware of this.

A crude guide to using FTP:

        Unix Command:   ftp <site name>
        Login:          anonymous
        Password:       login@machine_name

Let's say that geeker@pac.man.edu wants to get the latest and greatest
Ranma-chan GIF (/anime/hentai/r-chan1.gif) from happosai.com.
- At the Unix prompt, geeker types "ftp happosai.com".
- At the "login:" prompt, he types "anonymous".
- At the "Password:" prompt, he types "geeker@pac.man.edu".  He's now logged
  at happosai.com.
- geeker now uses cd(1) and ls(1) just like in Unix to find whatever he's
  after.

If geeker want to get the Ranma-chan GIF, he must do the following:
- He uses cd(1) to go to /anime/hentai.  Once there, he uses ls(1) to make
  sure that r-chan1.gif is actually there.
- GIF files are binary, so geeker sets the file transfer type to binary by
  typing "binary".
- geeker types "get <filename>", where <filename> is the name of the file he
  wants to copy.  In our case, he would type "get r-chan1.gif" to get the
  file. Note that no wildcards are allowed.
- Several other ftp commands to know:
        "?" - lists the commands available
        "quit" - exits the program
        "ascii" - sets file transfer mode to ascii
        "mget" - allows multiple-file gets, and wildcards

If you need help, or want to learn advanced techniques, DON'T post to
rec.arts.anime for help.  Instead, ask your local system administrator/CCON/
Unix witch doctor for help.  That's what they're paid for.

Notes:

- Synopses are available at most of the sites mentioned above.

- Sound files:  These are IFF "raw" sound files, which can be played on
  Amiga, MS-DOS, Macintosh and Sun computers.  There is also a text file with
  instructions on how to play them.

- EAV (Electronic Animation Velocity) and AnimeStuff are electronic anime
  fanzines.  EAV was put out by Randall Stukey and the Anime Publications
  Bureau, and AnimeStuff is published by a group of anime fans in CompuServe.

- urusei-yatsura archives:  the collected messages of four years (1987-1991)
  of the Urusei Yatsura mailing list (see below).  Warning: this file is
  HUGE! (about 300 pages long).

- The Rutgers Anime site contain all the anime song translations by Theresa
  Martin, and current copies of all the articles written by Steve Pearl
  (see ELECTRONIC ANIME RESOURCES: ARTICLES, below).

- Remember to set your file type to BINARY before reading any GIF/JPEG files, 
  sound files, or compressed text (.Z) files.


o ANIME BITNET FILESERVERS

listserv@brownvm.brown.edu -- Miyazaki mailing list archive.  From the
        Internet, send a message with the text 'get nausicaa filelist' to
        the above address.

BITFTP@PUCC -- FTP access for BITNET sites.  For more info,
        type 'tell bitftp at pucc help' from a BITNET account.

ftpmail@decwrl.dec.com -- Alternate email FTP access.  Send the message
        'help' and it will send back instructions.


o ELECTRONIC ANIME RESOURCES: MUCKs, MUDs, and MOOs
   Before entering the world of MUDs, it is highly  suggested that you get
   the MUCK documents from either piggy.ucsb.edu or
   glia.biostr.washington.edu. They have a document called mudenc.txt and
   mudref.txt.  Those two files tell you a little on how to get around on a
   MUCK and how to MUCK.  Also, for those of you who wish to program on a
   MUCK, you might want to get the following text files from the sites:
   mufman, muftut, mufref.  There is also 'info new.muf' and 'info new.prims'
   on the MUCK for the TinyMUCK 2.2fb4.2f for the FB server's primatives
   that tend to make a few more things easier (or harder) for the programmer.
