Hearing all the measures taking place concerning limiting accessibility of copyrighted material even "suspected" copyrighted material.

I was thinking, I know that Crunchyroll is legal and legitimate way to watch anime online.. will ACTA effect Crunchyroll, is it safe for me to continue Crunchyroll in the case of this act being passed? .. its a bit disconcerting.. I don't know all the information about the act and I'm unable to really interpret legal text of the act in way that I'd understand.

I don't like the idea of "immediate disconnection" and i don't want to be disconnected because of frequenting this site. and i don't want to lose out on my favourite episodes because of some kind of country blocking or censorship.

I'm hoping for a mod or administrator to answer this. in short my question really is, If ACTA is put in place how does it effect Crunchyroll and how does it effect me in the UK in viewing anime on Crunchyroll.

sorry i'm not a mod or admin but i'm posting this any way

The reason Crunchyroll is a legit and legal way to watch anime is because they own the rights to stream the anime they have for every place they own the license. Crunchyroll does not stream an anime that they don't not have the rights to. You may notice alot of people complaining they can't watch this or that anime in their region. this is because Crunchyroll can't legally stream it there because they don't own the rights to that country . ACTA entire purpose is to protect right-holders which Crunchyroll is for all their anime they stream to each country they do since they buy the licenses to stream to those places from the proper companies.
