As you know, the Japanese anime industry and police are taking serious means against copyright infringement, and raw providers are drying up. Now, as this pic shows, fansubbers who used to get raws via p2p are recruiting cappers in Japan to obtain new material directly through FTP or other means; they're assuming Japanese police can't arrest foreigners living abroad.

Probably this will work for a while. But I'm afraid Japanese companies may sue/warn fansubbers if piracy remains rampant. They have right to sue subbers because most countries, including US, are parties to the Berne Convention. They have reason to do so because their domestic sales are dropping and struggling because of the infringement via p2p; at least they are claiming so. Subs may help overseas sales, but it's not their main revenue source in the first place.

What do you think, /a/?
