Most company license a anime for 5 -7 even if the license expire they can still extend the contract (or a different licensing company will pick it up) if the anime is very popular or alot of people buy them.

oh and another one if a company license a anime but (example: don't make dvd copy of them) there license to the anime will get remove.

every one seems to forget that ALL ANIME IS PROTECTED BY INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT LAWS
that means if it is not licensed in the US, UK or any where else it is still illegal it distribute it with out the permission of the Owners.
thus all fan subs are illegal as well

Actually its a bit more complicated than that. Japan copyright laws and american copyright laws are completely separate. Now japan cant do shit if an american fansub service subbed their series but if an american company copyrights it here after buying the rights from japan then they can get into trouble. But here is the thing even if both japan and america have it copyrighted it doesnt mean its also copyrighted in lets say Philippines. They can still watch it, sub it, etc for free without getting in trouble.

NO thats all wrong
Japan and US laws are different but International law comes in to play. if an American fansub service subs it the Japanese company CAN take action. since that own all rights to it.
they only sell off the rights to different regions because its easier then distributing it on their own
