3. Eradicate piracy websites and protect the interests of creators
Piracy websites are mainly used for free browsing. Baskadia don't charge for browsing, but is operated by tips from fans who want to see new or sequel works of creators, or convey their feelings to support and appreciate creators. As a result, piracy websites lose their meanings.
