This is just a simple problem which i find annoying though minor. Im starting to get alot of mails from crunchy which i like (even though i get some mails 3 days after an episode is released for ex which im queued for) , but getting mails on anime i've followed through the years (torrent) and i love like for ex today about one piece getting released on crunchy and im all happy for it. Press the link in the mail and it says its licensed in my country and thats whats annoying. How and why is it even licensed in my country.. Can't find it on dvd or in the movies (this aint crunchys problem) but still not comprehenceable.

Not mad or anything.. Just a why and wth is it licenced in my country even though i cant find it anywhere (sweden).

Much love my anime otakus. Dai suki

Something being unavailable for your region doesn't necessarily mean it is licensed, nor does it not being available in some form mean it is not.

In some cases, the publisher simply doesn't offer the license (at least on terms that make economic sense). That results in the title not being licensed for your region, but still unavailable.

In other cases, a title may be licensed by a company that simply doesn't utilize those rights for your country. For an example of this, take a look at some of the Funimation titles brought over to CR that include rights for Nordic countries and/or South Africa. Except for the times Funimation may have put one of those series on YouTube, those rights were never utilized until now.

Licenses rarely seem to be for single countries. They are usually for a region or language, but that doesn't mean the company that obtains the license is interested in utilizing all of what they have or are interested in sub-licensing what they don't use.
