Screw being disrespectful to the writers of the game who were profitting from another person's work. oh noes they'll get in trouble!
They stopped producing the game already. So even if you are buying the game, the creators of the game are NOT profitting from it.

@Fushigi Rockna - Don't listen to armor-alchemist. That person seems to want to pick fights.
What I say is what I saw on the Chinese BBI forum. Yes, I know I sound bitchy most of the time, but I know more than you about this matter and I just didn't know the right tone to express myself. Even though I don't like that game all that much, I DO like the people that made the game, and I respect their decision that they STOPPED PRODUCING THE GAME LIKE WHAT, OVER 1 YEAR AGO, AND TRIED THEIR BEST TO STOP ALL THE ONLINE (ie. BT) DISTRIBUTION THEY COULD FIND. WHY? THEY DON'T WANT TO GET INTO TROUBLE! LOVE THE GAME/OCEAN-X? HELP THEM STOP PUBLIC DISTRIBUTION THAT THEY FAILED TO FIND! (Since they are not very fluent with English.)

Awesome. Why there has to be so many people asking for the game, as if it's their right to have it!
Come on. I got it by myself. I didn't need to ask. Why can't everybody do the same? We could avoid all the ruckus of BBI.
We all know what a doujin is. OK. Ocean-X sold the game, around 100 copies. And they stopped. And they asked to stop the distribution. Why?
Because this game is using more than just Hiromu Arakawa's characters. It's using the original music of the anime, and what's more, it's using an Ayumi Hamasaki song. Sure, they realized a little late, that they could be involved in a BIG problem due to rights.
Armor-alchemist is right in everything. And, there are plenty of doujin games in the world. Then, why people want BBI so bad?
A last note, I suppose there's no problem in sharing BBI by PM or e-mail....the problem starts when you make it public.
Thank you every much for being so understanding. *hugs*

It's just a matter of keeping it private ^^ PM or things like that. And everything should be OK
Exactly. That's why PM existed.
Again, I completely understand why people want this game and I haven't been using the best words I could use to convince people not to buy it off eBay (since it's a BIG ripoff, and the creators get nothing but possible trouble from it) nor post it publicly for download. It's just that there are so many other good things out there too, and moreover, it's always against myself if I have to harm someone else (in this case, not stopping/helping with online public distrubution of the BBI game, may get Ocean-X into legal issues, as what Kasumi_lvgd already mentioned), I will NOT do it. It's a decent game, but to me, it's just like any fanfics, not too special, and definately not the best one out there (out of many many doujin computer games I have found, anyways). Getting the BBI game or not, it's not a life or death situation. I will NOT get someone else in trouble for my own pleasure.
and I think I have said that far too many times. I will still continue to scream at people if they want to distribute BBI publicly (expecially in a big forum like this). It's none of my business anymore if people want to share it among PM. My aim is simply, to stop public BBI distribution the best I can.
