More from Libre Publishing on CPM Copyright Infringement

Manga Jouhou has posted a reply from Libre Publishing regarding the CPM/Be Beautiful incident. According to Libre, the license agreement CPM had with Biblos became invalid after Biblos filed for bankruptcy. CPM has since failed to establish a new license agreements with Libre Publishing:

Just as BIBLOS had been doing, Libre offers copyright licensing service for translations of our own publications to foreign publishers as an agent who is duly commissioned by each of the cartoonists and authors.

We have warned that CPM is illegally acting as an agent for each of the cartoonists and authors. Unfortunately, our warnings have fallen on deaf ears. This is the reason why we feel the need to make a public statement in protest.
