RDG11: Shit is hitting the fan
and Izumiko is pouting. *must hug till she squeals, she's too cute to fight the urge*
One more ep. I don't want it to end.
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 ^^

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.
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. 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. "
My dad's willing to give code geass a try after watching the first episode (english of course...)
I just found out that Guilty Crown will be on german TV this monday. An anime that is not at least 5 years old on free TV. Whats the world coming to?
What's next? They stop this reality TV bullshit?
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
