Well, after an initial 'Okay' given and then a rejection by some of Nekocon's staff ever in doubt that a gathering held in a lobby with signs posted asking folks to not block hallways and the usual garbage around rights issues with public exhibitions of movies in public, the UNMST is on Hiatus sadly. This thread can be deleted by a moderated if they wish it so. :sulk:

That sucks. Well, you could always sit in the back during anime showings and heckle them.

As fun as that would be, I doubt people watching the shows would appriciate such things and neither would the convention staff. :P

Sadly the decision boiled down to Nekocon covering itself from what could be a potential MPAA or DMCA lawsuit from having an 'un-authorized' public showing of a movie. As rediculous as that may sound, sadly in todays sue-happy world, it could happen. :eeek:

Oh well, there's always other cons.
