An evil company that brought the rights to distribute the Death Note anime
series in the west, and demanded that fansub
groups stop distributing it (threatening legal action) just two episodes before the end of the series.
It's legal, but nobody likes it. Kinda like taxes.
Chances are, another rouge group will pop up, but it's still not exactly nice.
Not to mention that Death Note probably won't reach the UK for a few more years.
Person 1: Did you hear about VIZ Media stopping the fansub groups distributing Death Note?
Person 2: Yeah, wanna join me in an anti- VIZ campaign?
Person 1: Sure!
