Pretty revisionist to claim that piracy was the reason Tokyopop went under when a lot of Tokyopop's titles were sourced from popular scans.
Nevermind what they did to the people who drew original books for them. I know there are people out there who haven't recovered yet.
One of Tokyopop's biggest problems was hiring/exploiting graphic arts students at poverty wages and getting books that looked bad.
