A lot of Anime Websites are stealing Videos from you guys Anime and Even Drama Titles. All The Naruto episodes come out on sites so early and no raw version releases is because they steal from you same with Bleach. So I can go on any Anime website and watch the same content there that I am here here but I won't because I don't like watching anime illegally. But other people do and that pisses me off how they are killing the anime industry soon crunchyroll will die I am being serious because of people stealing the same exact content from them.

I hate those websites with a passion. I'm pretty sure CR is aware of the problem. A solution that CR should seriously consider is offer us the code to embed the videos with the CR player on our own and other websites. Hulu and YouTube have been doing this for years. That way CR gets payed through advertising and promotes the site. One drawback being that those websites that are stealing now will probably continue to steal regardless, because they want to hurt CR and the anime industry; either that or they want access to the new simulcast shows without having to pay the subscription and they also probably don't want to have to watch commercials for the episodes from the back catalog. Cheap b*******.

Also, CR is not going to die anytime soon. They have been doing really well.

Hopefully CR is embedding more than the "Exclusive stream for username" that appears at the beginning of each video. A single frame at a specific known time code encoding with information identifying the user would likely be sufficient for cutting off the accounts of anyone pirating CR videos.

An easy procedure for reporting URL's of known pages displaying pirated CR videos would help, as well.

Now I'm not saying the sites you are refering to haven't ripped the video's from CR.

through CR's affiliate program (same with Hulu) it is possible to legitimately stream the the CR shows on other websites. still requires you to be logged in to CR and any content you aren't eligible for won't play.

How do you know they stole videos from here? Do the videos on the anime site(s) have CR's logo on it (when the video first loads) or anything of their autoplay icon?

shinji will have to take legal action if they are stealing videos from here.

The way that the videos are ripped, it would never show the Exclusive Stream text. In order for that to be there, they would have had recorded the video itself. More than likely, they are ripping the stream directly, which wouldn't directly have that text embedded into the video. Technically, the only way to tell it's a CR rip is if the subtitles are the exact same, and even that's not a guarantee. Although, I have seen websites that specifically said they ripped it from CR.

Do you ever wonder on the illegal anime sites how naruto shippuden comes out without no raw and bleach? Because they are ripping from crunchyroll. Most animes come out raw version before subbed, but the animes that are on a legal site don't because they rip them.

Also no it doesn't have the logo they use the video capturing thing then edit the logo out. like scum bags

You can tell which videos have been ripped from crunchyroll as at the start of the video and at any point where there might be any identifying text/logo's they lower down a text window over them with a website name in like this:
