Manga Stream Will No Longer Release Viz Media Manga Licensed

After Onemanga "shut down" now turn of Manga Stream because Viz Media demand Manga Stream to stop scanlation work for Viz Media Manga licensed.
It means you cannot read Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Claymore, D Gray man manga again on Manga Stream but you can still read other manga out of Viz Media licensed.
Below is statement of Manga Stream related to Viz Media demand:

February 11th, 2012 
Dear MangaStream supporter,
It's with a heavy heart that I make the following announcement. MangaStream will no longer be releasing the following series:
- Naruto
- Bleach
- One Piece
- Hunter x Hunter
- Katekyo Hitman Reborn
- Claymore
- D.Gray-man  
The aggressive and escalating nature of their threats have forced our hand into removing the content. MangaStream will no longer be posting full scanlations for any of the aforementioned series, we will instead focus our efforts onto the series we do that are not licensed by VIZ Media (you can assume everything currently on our directory will be continued).  
Our final message to our loyal JUMP audience will be this:
Thank you for supporting us over the past two years and making Mangastream your home away from home. It was a pleasure sharing our time with fans who were just as passionate and dedicated as we were.  
Although MangaStream will no longer be hosting any of the Jump series, if it's something our fanbase is interested in, we're considering leveraging our connections to bring you accurate spoiler summaries for the Jump chapters as early as possible. We know this isn't much, but hope it can whet your appetite until the dozens of aggregators release the official Jump chapters on Wednesday.

Well as manga fans do u want still to support manga scan or start to buying manga from the official distributor? What is your comment?
