Rule #3: Fansubs, bittorrent, YouTube, etc.
« on: November 18, 2012, 07:23:24 pm »
Everyone has an opinion on the topic of streams and downloads of material on the internet. However, I'm the sheriff in this frontier, and my word is law. My word on the topic is this:

  • Links to fair use works are permitted. Fair use includes fan-made music videos, mash-ups, etc.
  • Links to the latest TV broadcast or its fansub are permitted until an official release -- DVD, Blu-ray, streaming site, etc. -- in any country is available.
  • Links to fansub scripts are permitted.
  • Links to anything that has an official release -- DVD, Blu-ray, streaming site, etc. -- in any country are not permitted.

There is no "But it's only out in Japan" or "It's too expensive" loophole here. I will delete threads/posts that violate this rule and ban repeat offenders.
