Now that I think about it, I'm not sure how I spotted it. It's probably because when I read things I tend to highlight them as I go (especially when it's a longer paragraph.) I probably ended up dragging too far and saw it. lol
I believe that it technically falls in to a gray-area. Many fansubbed shows are produced in counties that have different or nonexistent copyright laws. It generally goes that as long as the show isn't licensed in the US, it's de facto kosher. IF this article would have been true, then it would have only been due to a company using the police to bully and scare the community because they can't really press charges.since it's technically illegal
This is my understanding of it at least. Even if it's not the case, morally I don't have a problem with it. It's accessible elsewhere only due to geographical restrictions which no longer really NEED to be restrictive. The creators of the show lose nothing; in fact they gain. If I find a show I want to watch that hasn't been here released/licensed here in the US, I suddenly have a prerogative to see it proliferate in to my markets of access.
