Hey s'up CR,

I just noticed this:
http://www.perfectworld.com/media/play/?id=20241

Should they be doing this?

I noticed the same thumb nails to the same anime that you play here, so I clicked through to see if it was actually from CrunchyRoll. I was half surprised to see "Exclusive stream for Myskers" appear at the top of the video and sure enough, it's definitely from CR.

I don't see a single thing on the page itself that gives credit to Crunchy Roll. Maybe this is kosher - it would be good advertisement, I guess - but it seems a little fishy to me and I wanted to give you a heads up.

Perfect World has been a partner of ours for a while now (since 2008 I think) and often has frontpage takeover ads on our site for their MMORPGs and such. So we allow them to stream our videos using our portable player which is also good for us since this embedded player links back to the video on our site if the person clicks anywhere on the video plus we still serve the same ads for non-premium members.

Just about anyone with a website can get an affiliate account and embed many of our series on their site.
