No, MAG (Manga-Anime Guardians) is not some awesome metamanga about protecting manga from manga-destroying pirates; rather, it's a very real organization put together by the Japanese government to crack down on manga/anime piracy--albeit in the most inconceivably stupid ways possible, as outlined by this handy (and hilarious) video by the good folks at Tofugu.
