I heard that somebody created a bunch of scripts to automate the process.
You leave the computer running overnight automatically creating screenshots page after page.
I wouldn't be surprised if users organize themselves to pool the resources. You make screenshots of one of your manga and get access to other screenshots ... and content producers will have another opportunity to whine about the pirates ... sigh.

I will not go into further details, because:
- I am not interested in Manga in and comics general,
- I would never pay for such access to the content and
- we can't discuss such techniques on Mobileread anyway.
