NicoNico Douga announced that it made an agreement with the likes of the Japan Animation Association to delete videos which infringe copyright so its sayonara to MAD and a ton of other fan made videos.

Kadokawa did recently say that they wont be taking action against fan made videos that were uploaded to YouTube as it looks like they made an agreement with YouTube to monetize from fan made videos. Wondering why a similar agreement wasn't made with NicoNico.

Will be interesting to see how a site that is originally popular with fan made videos survives without them. Any NicoNico users here?
