Fansubs: now it’s Funi

September 30th, 2007 by Author

I was reading at Suguru’s about Funimation following the lead of much-hated Media Factory, and a thought occured to me: why is it that ADV, Funi, et al. do exactly jack about stores which sell bootlegs in the broad daylight? It’s clear that they decided to make fansubs a scapegoat for their poor business practices (such as atrocious selection of titles to license, which Ledford infamously calls “sniping”), but honest to goodness pirates get a pass.
