The suspension of Digital Manga from the Kindle Store over unspecified "content violations" has been reversed, which Digital Manga attributes to the outpouring of support from fans who took action. That was fast!

While I'm glad Digital Manga can continue to sell via Amazon, I'm profoundly unimpressed with the robustness of Amazon's judgment here. If they can be swayed by one group of people yelling loudly about their interpretation of the vague content guidelines, they can be swayed by other groups, including those whose interpretations are not so benign and who may want to stop others' voices from being heard on Amazon's massive platform.

Welcome!

This is the research journal of Nele Noppe. Besides the occasional squee about A:tLA, I mostly talk about the cultural economy of fanwork, comparative research on Japanese dojinshi and English-language fanwork, and legal, economic and cultural policy issues related to dojinshi and to fanwork in general. Anything too short or incoherent to post here goes into Twitter or the notes and quotes book.
