hey guys... get this reality straight... there are anime(s) that are not allowed to be shown for free because specific companies own them for profits... thus... its only normal for websites to NOT show such series(s)...
however there ARE those series(s) that are NOT LICENSED because nobody owns them... therefore u can watch them free online... that is the CORRECT way things SHOULD BE...


Wrong, just because a show isn't licensed doesn't mean somebody doesn't own it. It is still the intellectual property of the creator, you can watch them online for free because somebody uploaded it, not because it's ok. For some reason you see anime as inherently different than any other type TV show, Unauthorized reproduction is unauthorized reproduction. I'm sure if you were to rip a dvd of an english tv show, put subtitles on it and give it to Asians for free the creators/owners of that show would not be too happy with you.

Fansubs are considered "ethical" because there is no alternative means for you to understand the show, that doesn't mean they have any right to distribute it. Companies will overlook this because its either not worth the effort/impossible to supress or because it helps the community.

I don't see why you think you have some right to watch anime until an American company buys the rights to it, as if its not valid entertainment or something.

Also I like the irony of how you copy/pasted an article in a thread essentially about copyright.

unfortuneately licensed does not always mean released....never did figure out why they wanna rush and license everything knowing only a portion will be seriously considered. Granted they are getting faster with releasing but truely they just cant keep up....lol specially whith my rate of watching when i can.

Ehh still waiting for the day these anime channels actually appear on cable or dish or direct.....still havent seen it over here, and frankly..not see it happening any time soon.

Dude, your fight in this thread about your personal things that are not related to anime licensing is quite amusing and entertaining. :))
