Linking to licensed streams

I just posted a comment over in the Suggestions thread that references Ristorante Paradiso and includes a link to its page on Crunchyroll. I thought I'd better raise the question of whether such links are forbidden by the general rule of not linking to licensed materials.

In this case I'd argue that links to Crunchy shouldn't be banned since the material is legal to view (at least in R1 which is all that matters under the general licensing rule). Similarly is there any reason not to allow links to freely-available shows on sites like Funimation? While the rule makes sense for linking to material licensed for R1 DVD distribution, I don't think it should apply to material freely offered for view under license on streaming sites.

Currently, the intent of our rules are such that linking to legal streams are allowed. There is no issue with you posting a Crunchyroll link to a licensed show such as the one you mention, Ristorante Paradiso. There would be no issue with similar links to the legal Funimation streams as well.

Thanks, xris. I didn't think it would be an issue, but I thought it was better to get a clear ruling from the "powers-that-be."
