Comment: Missed Opportunity (Score 1) 265

Yet another faceless organization misses the boat. They see there is a desire for their content but instead of trying to find a way to earn money they decide to restrict access to their content as much as possible. This only leads to people finding alternate ways to get it.

What should they be doing right now? Setting up a web site that for a small monthly fee ($5) will allow you to watch, not download, all the japanese tv shows you want. Most people who care about Anime don't like the dubs so all they would have to do is subtitle them. The game shows are funnier with the bad voice overs, so get some college exchange students and allow them to do the bad voice overs for college credit.

Everybody wins.
