MMmmm....pretty much everyone has this dilemma...When do you think the other animes will be unlicensed? a few already got unlicensed and crunchyroll's beginning to suck because every anime that HELL worth watching are gone now...
( this concerns to the people with low band-width internets) T_T poor poor people

sorry for the title. Didn't saw it before I posted this. It should be "they"

I just want to know so I could get a heads up on how long I should wait

Please just take this lightly. I do love crunchyroll. it's just that I'm bummed out cause I can't watch the animes I want to watch in my fave site Also please, I don't want to start fights in the internet. It's just plain irritating.

and to others:
1) I do buy DVD's
2) I do watch at other websites ( yeah I know that too. I'm not that stupid. I'm quite resourceful in just what simple things I have )

License something like intellectual property= FOREVER! It's permanently own to the license holder.

I just use CR as a means to find out what anime to watch <..<

I mostly download anime nowadays.

You'll probably never live to see anime unlicensed. Just learn to find other places to scavenge it.

I use anikat.com a lot for the time being.

A licensing expires in various times, some can be for a long time, and others can be for a short while. The licensing itself depends on the company, and how long they'd hold their right for.


Long story short: No. US companies have usually already paid good money to the Japanese production company to license the anime.

What you're essentially asking for is that the American company stop what they're doing, demand their license fee back from the Japanese, tell them that they won't be marketing and distributing their product in America any more, and that their mom is ugly. Okay, maybe not the last part, but you get the idea. This is considered Breach of Contract, and potentially can end up in a Court case in which the Court will basically side with the Japanese production company. Legally, unless there's a perfectly good legal reason to withdraw from a contract, the courts will usually look badly on a contract breaker.

So, no. The other alternative is to wait for the license to expire. But since it's uncertain how long companies license animes for, this is probably not a good idea. Worst case scenario is that you might have kids first.

This is in no way a definitive answer for the subject: a forum member pointed out to me that the fate of the recently deceased Geneon USA made it possible for all the animes under them to "not have a licensor anymore", in effect, "unlicensing" them. Some of their animes were licensed under different companies following this incident, but technically, for the record, unlicensing can happen due to a company collapsing.

A licensing does expire, therefore, it's not forever.

What would happen if the company that held the license went out of business?
