Japanese Government say No more Anime and Manga Piracy

Japan decided that they're going to partner up with 15 major anime and manga publishers and send requests to 580 foreign sites to remove the content they illegally uploaded.

This affects both anime and manga. Of course we don't know which sites are going to be affected, as far as we're concerned it might not be any site we visit, but it's still something to keep in mind.

The operation starts on August 1st:
"On August 1, the government will start simultaneously sending requests to delete illegal anime and manga contents to the operators of the 580 foreign pirate sites which they have found. In addition, the operation will launch a new site to guide the fans to a legitimate site offering some 250 titles including the latest ones at a cost of several hundred yen."

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry production spokesman also said this:
“We want to create a project so that anime fans overseas can enjoy Japanese content legally and without infringement worries while the profits are paid to anime production companies and publishers,”

Implying that they're going to find a solution to give us, foreigners, a way to get the manga and anime they removed legally.
