They’re taking a stance against the streamers, but the one that has already profited most, evaded. Rode to a pretty position atop the work of subbers, who did not condole it. Two years too late; a lesson.

Fansubbers, crack the whip.

Personally, I avoid streaming sites because it’s not fair to subbers, but more for the fact that it’s a stream, and that spells QUALITY. Give me a 1Mbps non-proprietary stream and I might bite, otherwise all I can see are gimmicks and second-hand theives (who aren’t adding value, doing the opposite in fact). /mini rant off

  1. It seems like the pot’s calling the kettle black. Those other sites could easily turn around and point to the illegality of fansubbing and both of them could go down. I’m not sure why they decided to go public like this, rather than post their campaign in a password-protected area for their fans.

  2. Well, I think it has something to do with their stance on fansubbing and distributors, which they say can co-exist with some bounds… naturally, that’s true because it’s been going on for a long time now.

    The issue is that fansubbers aren’t trying to flip a giant profit, while a lot of these sites use fansubbed works to drive traffic for advertising; and it works… Crunchy Rolls is the perfect example, and they got away with it by ditching the subbed material and getting buddy-buddy with licenses… the ones who did all the work to make CR big, got zero.

    Fansubbing is a threat, but they aren’t cashing in on the job they do. Streamers provide a much easier distribution method than IRC/BT and are making money.
