Sounds more like the anime industry and Haim Saban are trying to crack down on fansubbing. I'm sorta dreading the effect it'll have on the anime DVD industry, though, because we're not likely to get decent shows over here anymore without fansubbers keeping various interest groups active. And then there's the probability that what does come over will be horribly chopped up to meet US network censorship requirements, which are stupidly high compared to anywhere else in the world.

That explains why various groups keep talking about the government building concentration camp- style facilities. Does anyone else remember the bill that would've made it a felony to violate any website's terms of use? It was rejected out of concerns that it would've opened the door for businesses to privatize the writing of laws without the need to go through the motions required by the Constitution.

An ancient Chinese curse says, "May you live in interesting times." Methinks our times fit that description very well.
