Hello Administrators,

As part of a hobby project, I have uploaded 17K comics from http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/ to http://issuu.com/digitalcomicmuseum.

issuu.com has an embedding solution that could be used to offer a preview or to embed an uploaded comic book on your own site that works on the web, mobile web and also issuu's IOS and andriod apps, and we have a team working on an html5 only online reader, http://help.issuu.com/hc/en-us/articles/220294168-issuu-goes-HTML5-our-next-generation-reader-is-coming

Here is an example of the inline code:
BEGIN INLINE CODE
<div data-configid="25826560/37751851" style="width:400px; height:300px;" class="issuuembed"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//e.issuu.com/embed.js" async="true"></script>
END INLINE CODE
OR
BEGIN INLINE CODE
<iframe width="400" height="300" src="//e.issuu.com/embed.html#25826560/37751851" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
END INLINE CODE

I would be happy to handover access of the issuu account http://issuu.com/digitalcomicmuseum.com to you.

DISCALIMER: I am an issuu employee but am doing this on my own initiative.

What exactly is this site, Issuu? What is its purpose?

lots of copyright violation going on there at that website, not where DCM wants to be

Issuu takes copyright violations very seriously https://issuu.com/legal/copyright. Like all other similar services issuu can not control what is uploaded by users but takes swift action on all copyright violations.

And if DCM told you we had no interest in using your service and to please remove the files you've copied to Issuu would you do so?

Personally I would have liked if you ask us to use our name digitalcomicmuseum.com first or created it under a generic name and then asked us if we wanted to take ownership of it.
It just looks like that account is run by us and have full control over it's content, when this is the first we have heard of it etc.

As for issuu website, I have used it in the past as part of my real job to easily display PDF's on a website without the user having to open pdf's etc

Issuu should have asked permission to do what they have done.
After all, they do not OWN DCM.
I agree 100 percent with CaptainDJ.
All DCM references should be removed from ISSUU.
This is not the way a person should run a business.

Yes that is what I have stated in my first post. This is a personal account owned by me and I'm willing to hand over access to the administrators for this site; please feel free to delete it if you feel it is not useful.

I understand, but this is a personal account. The intention is only to promote the awesome work done by the volunteers of this site. I'm happy to hand over the account access to the administrators here.

I am offering to hand over the account to you. I would like to promote http://digitalcomicmuseum.com

I personally don't mind the comics on issuu as our goal has always been to spread the comics wide and for everyone to gain access to them for free. It seems you have done this for the same reason but maybe gone about it in the slightly wrong way.

From an administration point of view, we won't want administration access to that account since we focus our spare time on this site and don't have time to manage the issuu account as well.

If you wish to keep the project going we just ask that you rename the account to something slightly different other than digitalcomicmuseum.com and if you want to help us out then just credit us with our name or a link back to the site where you found the comics etc.

Above is my personally opinion and I do not speak for all the other staff members, as we have not discussed this as a staff team.

Yes I want to help; if you as administrators do decide to keep this account then I'll happily credit digitalcomicmuseum.com as you suggest.

We appreciate that you enjoy the work being done on DCM, and believe me it is a lot of work by all - staff, scanners, editors and our generous donors.
I'm not sure how rehosting them on Issuu helps much other than a secondary source should DCM for some reason go dead. 
Personally as long as Issuu isn't make money off of the scans, none, then I don't mind them being up there.  But I don't speak for all the scanners here and I would HATE to hear someone stopped sharing because they didn't like the idea of the scan they've made being used by a 3rd party. 
If scanners don't support DCM they we die.

I understand your point completely and re-iterate I will hand over the account password (no strings attached), should you feel this account may be detrimental to digitalcomicmusueum.com in any way.

Rehosting
 - may help get more traffic back to think of it as a way to promote your digitalcomicmusuem.com. e.g., http://bhpcomics.com/category/books/comics/
 - can provide digitalcomicmusuem.com with a way to allow users to read online on Desktops or Tablets or phones (on digitalcomicmusuem.com) using an issuu embed e.g., You could put this on an page on digitalcomicmusuem.com
Code: [Select]
<div data-configid="25826560/37751851" style="width:400px; height:300px;" class="issuuembed"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//e.issuu.com/embed.js" async="true"></script>
