Japan Broadcasting "Stop Downloading from Internet" Messages

I've noticed recently that certain Anime stations are airing a message with some of their programs that pretty much says:

Quote:
Recently TV programs have been being distributed on the internet. We are warning people that this is illegal.
something like that anyway...

Has anything like this happened before?

I'm just wondering if the Anime Licensors/Distributors are going to be stepping up their efforts in an attempt to "regulate" this more, and/or if there is new legislation that has come out concerning the downloading of illegally uploaded material.

If you want to know where I'm coming from, check out the next release of Spice and Wolf II or Princess Lover. It's been broadcasted on those programs for a bit now. (usually in the very beginning of the episode. Can be before/after the OP song.)

It just an effort to send the word out to whoever that caught the boardcast online in one way or the other that they are technically doing something illegal.

Been happening for about the past decade or so since the Studios and Boardcasters in Japan caught wind of Winny. So much so the message becomes the standard.

Anyway, it's interesting to note that most of the fansubs refuse to translate that line, heh.

Its also almost completely targeted at Japanese domestic viewers (i.e. ones who don't subscribe to the cable channels but lift their episodes off of the Internet).

Its pretty much meaningless for the rest of the world who can't get access to those channels anyway (though *technically* a copyright violation by the current meaning of the term).

Why not, they already do that in the UK.
Got tracking vans and everything to see if there's a TV signal emitting from a home then check to see if a licence has been paid.
Could try to track down some of the 'intense' TV ads that 'force' us to pay our licences (or else)
BBC have to make a living somehow raising them every bloody year -.-

You mean IT'S NOT WORTH IT???!!! GASP!!!

HAHA seriously, I find that amusing. An American would literally GO TO WAR with a broadcaster for doing that, but then again our tv was in the grubby mitts of ad/commerical companies from day one so...

I wouldn't be surprised if they started adding it to American television programming. They already spam it in theaters and movie rentals.

yep but thank God some DVD's messed up the menu options so you can skip all the license messages by simply pressing next lol
Dutch cinema's now started with the warning that videotaping a movie is not allowed, something I saw in a UK cinema the week before when on holiday, I lol'ed though

The Japanese themselves are known to download popular American TV shows like 24 and CSI, very much like what we did to anime. I think that message also aimed for them too and not just for us.

If it ever becomes possible, it'd be like 9032848392348 TB and most likely break in a day.

*Remebers the "Download is stealing" ads on DVDs and in theaters*

In America hollywood movies are more likely to be copied and distributed, and cost the industry a lot more money. (One that lives on opening weekends anyways)

Downloading a car FTW

Not only that, Most DVDs have these warning messages not to download movies off the internet illegally... and it gets very annoying and you can not skip it...

It's pretty much common sense, but is it really necessary to drill it into the viewer's head?

I've been seeing a lot of those warnings lately. Kinda annoying imo. I guess they have to attempt to protect their productions though. Like you guys were saying, we have all of those piracy warnings and stuff on our DVDs and stuff as well.

I like the 'You wouldn't insert crime' adds, because I've done some of the things they say I wouldn't do. Also, do these adds actually make anyone stop downloading music or videos?
