Is this allowed or against the rule?
I understand the racket is not allowed to touch the net.
Is it allowed for the racket to go over the net?
1.) If the opponent hits a very weak clear that goes to around the front of the net, am I allowed to swing the racket over the net and hit the shuttle?
2.) After I do a "drop" and the shuttle is flying toward the opponent's court, am I allow to put my racket over the net and swinging it back and forth to distract the opponent, to make the opponent very uncomfortable to defend the drop? or even that can make the opponent scared to get to the shuttle?
Is it legal in this 2 scenarios :P?

for the first one the shuttle has to have crossed the net so ur follow through can cross the net i think

1. As long as the shuttle is over the net & on your side of the court you can hit it. However the T joint of the racquet do not cross over. Anytime the T joint is over, it is illegal.
2. Again, the same thing it is legal as long as the T joint is not over the net. But if you do this, and the shuttle hit your racquet before its over on your side..this will be a fault or illegal.

for scenario 1, you can only hit the shuttle on your side, but your follow through action can briefly cross the net as long as it does not hinder your opponent from playing the shuttle
for scenario 2, the umpire may also give you a warning for unsportsmanship conduct, and if you do it again he may deduct points. in the case of a tournament match but the games are unofficiated (playing just by honours system), the opponent can object to your actions and request an unpire present to make an official ruling.

I suppose as long as the bird is in play, your racquet are not allow to pass the net period.

Check out the laws of badminton at http://www.internationalbadminton.or....aspx?id=10513.
Capnx is correct. i.e. you can only contact the shuttle on your side of the net, your racket is only allowed to cross over the net on follow through of the stroke.

There's a relatively new thread on these kind of questions already.
Search button is your friend <.<
The laws are an even better friend.
13.4 if, in play, a player:
13.4.2 invades an opponentís court over the net with racket or person except that the striker may follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke after the initial point of contact with the shuttle is on the strikerís side of the net;
13.4.3 invades an opponentís court under the net with racket or person such that an opponent is obstructed or distracted; or
13.4.4 obstructs an opponent, i.e. prevents an opponent from making a legal stroke where the shuttle is followed over the net;
13.4.5 deliberately distracts an opponent by any action such as shouting or making gestures;

"13.4.2 invades an opponent’s court over the net with racket or person except that the striker may follow the shuttle over the net with the racket in the course of a stroke after the initial point of contact with the shuttle is on the striker’s side of the net;"
I would like to ask how do you consider follow the shuttle over the net with the racket.
Does that mean that the contact point of shuttle and racket is at my side of the court and then my racket can goes with the flight of the shuttle and cross the net??
So does that mean, as long as the contact point of the shuttle and racket is at my side of the court, racket crossing the net is legal??

this thread needs some pictures!

Your picture is great for the left side, but questionable for the right person. How far away is the right person away from the net?
I still like the picture though.
I would also like to point out that "gamepurpose" 's comment is not true.

lol stop picking bones man, i suppose the person on the right can block all he/she want, just not anywhere reasonable to block up the net, hence, if the stick man stands 5 feet away from the net, the player can go ahead and block, and that will look very stupid and pointless, but again, it will not be called by the umpire.
