I agree that fansubbing and scanilating is rather offensive. Although, in my opinion, an easier way to deal with these groups would be to help support the legal streaming sites such as Animenewsnetwork, CR, Hulu and the animation studio's website.

You guys, and Funimation, and others, put a lot of effort into licensing and translating and subbing a series, and not only do these morons go and claim that work as their own, but they also have the gall to ask for "donations" to aid their "subbing".

Is there nothing CR can do about these kinds of people? Can they not get their site shut down, or the people responsible arrested? Profiting off piracy is even worse than the actual piracy. And surely even more illegal.


Didn't Crunchyroll start out as a group of fansubbers?
