consensus was that it was unwise for AnimeSuki to allow or support
Anime OST trading (which is a bit to bad, I've got a huge collection
I could share, but alas).

Now to help you out a bit, Anime OST links are frequently posted
to that "other great Anime BitTorrent site" -> I'll let you figure that
one out yourself.

Second, if you can get access to Usenet binary groups, there
is also a lot of Anime OSTs being posted to:
alt.binaries.sounds.anime
But isn't everything you list here licensed to beging with? Maybe not in the US but in some country it is,such as,Japan You also listed the Sailor Moon S video a little while back.

This is already explained on the Licensed Anime page.

Yes, but AnimeSuki is run by Americans.

Well, the central server resides in Germany.
Of course, the admin could be running the site offshore...I don't know.

Actually it wouldn't be considered licensed. Licensing means that someone has bought the rights. The japanese company already owns the rights so why would they have to license it out to themselves?

Correct... Forum Staff (Some double as site staff members... sadly there is no actual list of the site staff or share team members up at the moment though due to the forum being on a different server to the main site...)

No the U.S is not the only country, the reason I believe people make U.S licensing the standard is because no Asian, European, South American, Australian, African based company has ever shutdown or threatened to sue english fansubbers for distributing licensed anime. At least not that I've ever heard of.

Er, I don't want to dig up that discussion again.

But anyway, AnimeSuki isn't run (mainly) by Americans. I'm Dutch
(but currently living in Ireland) and part of the staff is from the UK.
Of course some are from the USA though (such as NoSanninWa).

However, since we list English fansubs, most of our visitors are American:
more than 50% in fact (plus a lot of Canadians). And mainly because the
fansubs are in English, we don't want to hurt the biggest market for
English anime: the USA.

Although on a tangent to the main thread, I'd like to point out that this is a false myth. Copyright infringement can be a criminal offence. This is even mandated by the WIPO treaty, so criminal charges for copyright offences must be in place in any country who has signed this agreement.

For US residents, the appropriate code is at http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/17/506.html

Can be. But not in the sort of cases we're talking about.

I was almost going to start a new thread, but figured maybe it would be more appropriate to just post in here and hope a mod will see it.

What if people posted links to sites or torrents that had Japanese music videos for download? I understand the risk and downside to posting mp3's since companies want you to buy the cd to listen to the song, and therefore could conceivably go after a site providing info on where to get such mp3's. But the whole purpose of music companies making music video's is to promote album sales for their artist by getting people to see them on TV (for free) which in turn will get people into the music stores to by the album.

Although I wonder if very many music video's are availible to begin with.

The list of Site Staff used to be on the contact page. The site got majorly changed when we moved to a mirror system following a hack that took us down for a whole week and the Staff list was never seen again. GHDPro, is there any chance that you might put it up again?

As for the Share Team... I don't think that they really exist anymore. The sharing purpose of AnimeSuki just isn't as important as it was a year ago. Today there are a lot of groups batching up and sharing their older releases. When AnimeSuki started doing it, they were the only ones. Now it would just be redundant for AnimeSuki. I saw old projects come out in batch just as AnimeSuki was considering them.

There are plenty of Japanese music videos around. I know they make their way through IRC and usenet.

A few groups are fansubbing music videos. Live-eviL did a couple, they have torrents on their torrent page at scarywater. There are some others too.

If you are talking about just giving the links, I'll boost that. Maybe just one thread in music forum for links is enough; having one thread for every PV that comes out is kind of a lot. I rather not see torrents listed on AnimeSuki torrent site though. Anyway that's my 2 cents.
