I've moved this to Advice, Info, Recommendations.

I'm also reminding anyone who replies that they should only recommend legal options for watching the show in India, and that other solutions used to circumvent CR's region restrictions are against ToS.

FYI, there's a forum bug related to image upload. The fix is simple once you know it--just remove the "$" that's in the image ID and it will display. I've gone ahead and fixed yours and also merged your two posts together. In the future if you need to add something and yours is already the most recent post in a thread, just click "Edit" in the upper right corner of your post to add anything or make changes.

Licensing is complicated, just keep in mind that the production company controls the distribution rights to any series. The streaming services (like Crunchyroll) would love to make deals with the rights holders to license everything, everywhere-- all regions. But often it's not practical to do so. And when licenses expire, sometimes they don't get renewed, for whatever reason.

How anime licensing works:

Find out where a series is streaming legally:

Sorry I don't have a practical solution... if the rights holder doesn't make an effort to license their content in your region, you're basically on your own.

See if anyone has legal streaming rights in your country, there might be another copyright holder. If not, well you'll have to make the decision on where to go from there. Hell last season there was one show Symphogear that nobody licensed which means the company pissed away any potential international revenue and in turn helped the piracy industry. Makes no sense to me, but it's the world we live in.

It's a shame though, you'd think with the internet and globalization in general this region locking nonsense would hurry up and die off sooner than later. For the time being we can only patiently await that day.

Actually, the region locking does have some benefits. For example, the UK streaming rights for most of the Dragonball franchise are apparently held by a French company as part of an international licence. After poor sales of their badly dubbed DVDs in the UK they show little sign of re-entering the market. If the licence had been split into a French and English licence that company could have obtained the French-speaking licence and left the English speaking rights to a company that had an interest in using it.

Just imagine if the same company had won the exclusive licence for the whole world (excluding Japan). Great for French speaking countries but the rest of the world is completely shut out.

I suppose, but that is assuming that every region is licensed. What are regions with no license supposed to do rhetorically speaking of course. That is my major point of contention. It's one thing having to use a different site or distributor for a given region, but when there is no legal route it's straight up bs and corporate incompetence, just my 2 cents.

A region that isn't licensed is better than a region where someone is sitting on a licence they do not intend to use. At least with the unlicensed region someone else could obtain the legal rights sometime in the future. With a licence squatter you have to wait for the terms of that licence to expire before someone else has the opportunity to acquire it.

It is not just the French company; I know of several companies who are sitting on UK licences but have never attempted to use them.

I am not saying that regional licensing is perfect but having exclusive licenses is not the universal panacea that some people think it is.
