^true true..

but then he has to raise the "donations"
Posted 11/24/06
he sells downloads, that are downloaded illegally, making a personal profit (even if it goes straight back into the site, its money he COULD just keep, if he chose to.) off of licensed material (the animes may not be licensed in america, but they are copywritten to their creators, and are still owned to some degree. the second something is created, it is copywritten and cannot be sold, without agreement of the creator, unless the profits go to the creator. thats why people can get in soooo much shit for having illegally downloaded, music, movies, shows, games etc)

NOOOOOO dont advertise this around, i dont wanna go back to Youtube where i can find almost every other comment about an anime something like :" Huh*burp* Id Hit That", we dont need that here!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, THOSE WHO DONT WANNA GO BACK TO YOUTUBE PLEASE DONT ADVERTISE THIS, and those who o wanan go there, pls do so and dont screw it up for the rest of us.
Plus Hadon is right, if you read the "This is a free fan sub/dub" part of the anime it clearly states that it supposed to be free so it should not be SOLD, also such animes as FLCL or Kare Kano were removed from Youtube since the owners were pissed that their product was shown there.

I would hafta agree to the mass populous. It is already quite popular because of people like me who stumble on it, but once we spread the word massively, it will get harder and harder to watch these for free. I say keep it to finders keepers more or less, and only let a friend or two know who can a)donate to the site or b) add anime to it

cr is already popular. The reason for this is allowing uploads. The more anime uploaded to this site the more it shows up in searches because the anime your searching for is connected to this site. so Id say for each new anime you have about 12 new users.

don't advertise it... CR is pretty popular already, and I would hate to see it attract unwanted attention, so a big NO to this.

yes, but think of it this way
sites like myspace gets government funding becauseof mass popularity, not to mention hundreds of millions in donations

if CR made money like that [and it is possible], then shinji could buy the rights to anime easily
and if that happens, then comp[anies will be begging shinji to buy their anime
its that simple

Ahhh, I guess you can translate it that way. It will take a while for that to happen though.

Mass popularity is not not always good. Some things will not be the same. If that happens we might as well call CR Youtube. Companies saw their material on Youtube. Those companies could have proposed a deal with Youtube. Yet they did not. Instead they got pissed off and demanded that they take their material off immediately. What makes you think CR will be any different? If CR becomes popular among the masses what will most likely happen is all of the licensed anime will be taken off. We will all be left with a few series to watch, which will most likely be horrible anime. With no deal proposed by any company. That is why it might be best to leave it up for people to stumble upon it.
