Am curious about how this will come out
I live in europe, and some shows here on cr are restricted to due (in customers eyes) stupid licensing that is so outdated its a horrific business model in a modern connected world

in my eyes it it looks like this
Customer:hello i want to watch your show
Business: no you cant its restricted due to licensing
Customer: why? i want to give you money
Business: nope we do NOT want your money

do someone see the logic of all this? (i dont, and most of the internet does not either)

atm i pay premium to watch some shows
only those should get my premium money, and crunchyroll of of course, those companies that gives me restricted content should NOT get my money

btw i also get less content for the same amount other uses in us do, anyway, i dont mind paying more for less if its good

i hope this will lighten up some discussion about this horrific topic

a good example of something incredible stupid is
"Availability Notes: This title will be available in the UK and Ireland for premium members untilJuly 15, 2011."
on http://www.crunchyroll.com/gosick

whats up to until?, are they nuts? what do they think they get money for removing a show after a short period?
any noob starting a store will make it available forever or they dont get any money

oh well, i hope this wont block my watching, if it does, me and many other fans will just do the naughty or just stop watching the a good series why? what else is there?


what about doing this
make it only for premium members forever

the industry needs to do this
1. Open up (as in make it available for crunchyroll, netflix, voddler and everyone else)
2. Yes open up?, why any noob will tell you that a bigger market = more money so more profit
3. if the licensors dont do this they are doomed on the internet, the licensors can also functions as subbers/translators/merchandise for the region etc

its nice that some get this, like NRK in norway and some publishers here on CR
