    Anyways, anyone know what the best fansub group for Infinite Stratos is? On MAL it looks like all the groups had problems, I have no idea what one to download from.
    I just went with Coalgirls and was fine with it, not sure which group they used though.

    When I'm not sure what group should I pick I get whatever's at BakaBT. They tend to pick the best version for their torrents.

    Actually the original point was torrenting it isn't going to disqualify you from applying as a student intern for some low level government job.

    how is torrenting even a white crime? the p2p script is totally legal as long as u dont load illegal files. animes that arent licensed are legal so its 100% legal its not like a grey crime like using irc for games music etc. in germany where only the uploading part is a crime ;X no idea how its in different countrys though but as far as i know in most only the *selling uploading* etc. is illegal ^^

    I doubt they'll go through the trouble of asking the NSA for the guy's hard drive just to see what he's torrented.

    In countries subscribing to the Berne Convention, fansubbing is illegal as it constitutes copyright infringement. However, fansubbers have traditionally held themselves to a common code of ethics and do not commonly see themselves as pirates.

    Countries Part of Berne Convention.
    If it interests anyone. Not like anything is going to change though because of it. As said before it's a white crime at most.


    Also..

    There is a belief among some[who?] fans that an "unspoken agreement" exists between the fansubbers and Japanese copyright holders that fansubs help promote a product[citation needed]. Steve Kleckner of Tokyopop noted:
    Frankly, I find it kind of flattering, not threatening[...] To be honest, I believe that if the music industry had used downloading and file sharing properly, it would have increased their business, not eaten into it. And, hey, if you get 2,000 fans saying they want a book you've never heard of, well, you gotta go out and get it. "[14]

    Not sure if it's dubbed, it's not on a mainstream channel and might just be subbed instead. We'll see.

    Channel is Tele5, two episodes will be broadacted on Monday the 17th, starting at 22:10

    I'll watch it. I'm no fan of the series, but watching a new~ish anime on german TV is such a novel idea, I'll just watch it for shit and giggles

    I really should watch tele5 more often. Although there is a limit to how much Star Trek TNG/Voyager one can stand w/o going postal, but that limit is much higher than for DSDS (germany's "American Idol") or other Reality TV shows. Or those nice "you biatch fooked mah boyfriend imma gonna smack you" Talkshows.

    That's the reason why HDMI1 (=connection to my PC) is the best channel there is on my TV. freshly fansubbed anime (or other shows you get off the internet) is much better than 99.9% of the stuff you get to see on TV. Honestly, I'd rather watch the Testbild for hours on end than this shit
