We wonder why those hosts with copyrighted content stay up. I realize a great deal of "don't post any US content" but they don't treatment at all about content from japan... Could it be just that Asia doesn't care and attention much about their copyright laws?.. It is hundreds or maybe even thousands of servers with content from Japan however they only obtain DMCA warnings for US materials or something which got translated by a US company... They also often have some content on their website, like images or small records..

Por lo general todo el mundo confunde la garantía de la tienda (que en el caso de fnac en ordenadores es de 7 días), con la del fabricante (que puede ser uno, dos, tres más). Al fin y al cabo tú recibiste un artículo, con mal servicio post-venta, pero yo pagué por adelantado dos DVDs a principio de julio y todavía estoy esperando hoy, a punto de poner el pie en octubre. Sí aceptaban enviarlo a reparar al servicio técnico del fabricante (Blusens) bajo garantía, a lo que accedí (la laternativa era quedarme para los restos con el ejemplar estropeado), aunque tras ver testimonios como los que estoy leyendo ahora me temo lo peor.
