Licenses do expire here, yes. Sometimes they tell you a little before it runs out. Watch the /site-news for these kinds of announcements:

/forumtopic-900409/marathon-time-anohana-wagnaria-viewtiful-joe

other times they don't actually announce a departure, and you find out because Funimation announces an acquisition:

/anime-news/2014/08/09/funimation-announces-steinsgate-movie-cowboy-bebop-plans-haruhi-rescue-license-and-more-at-otakon

(Haruhi and Lucky Star were both here before that).

And sometimes they just disappear (probably can't tell us due to non-disclosure clauses) examples only, not a full list:

/moribito
/catblue-dynamite
/wonder-beat-scramble
/dark-side-cat
/gaiking-legend-of-daiku-maryu
/kigurumikku

Others have answered the question about whether or not CR drops shows.

Another thing you may be encountering is that CR has region restrictions on some shows. If you're in the US or Canada it would be pretty rare to find Google results suggesting a show is on CR that isn't available to you due to region restrictions, but if you're in another country I'd think you might find info via Google indicating a show is on CR -- and it is -- just not available in your region.
