THEN HOW THE FUCK ARE WE TO GET OUR ANIME FOOTAGE TO MAKE AMVS? I really don't know of any other LEGITIMATE method...
Well first off, worrying about legitimate source material is dumb. Yes I said DUMB. We don't have real genuine legal permission to use the stuff the way it is being used for AMVs nor is their genuine legal permission to use the music. So fretting over using a downloaded dvd is really at the end of the day, kinda stupid.
It's always good when you guys make the attempt, but lets get serious, it doesn't really matter in a courtroom, and that in the end is all that counts.
Digital download methods are an option, but it only needs to be an option. They like dumping all sorts of clutter on discs because we all know, they don't really need the full disc, they just have no reason to not use it. And now that we have started moving to blueray well hell that is considerable sums of gigs of data space.
I see no reason though why they can make it open to purchase downloads of all the bonus stuff as well.
Or just make the bonus stuff freely downloadable as good PR and effectivel advertising, Because conventional advertising is horrendously expensive.
The future is already here, and it just remains to see if various portions of the media based industries out there have the wisdom to embrace it.
Everyone is enjoying the ability to move massive sums of data on high performance internet services, it's about time the proper businesses at least started to make use of the same technology that the pirates are enjoying. If the p2p services can figure it out, isn't it about time the source companies started to learn?
Brick and mortar is ok, but in 2011, we no longer really need them as the only option.
I buy plenty of media still, I just don't need to buy it in a box any more. Or at the very least, I don't need to leave my home to shop for it.
The only stuff I still buy mainly off of a shelf is plastic models. And you know, even that is increasingly not necessary. Although I prefer to buy paint and glue in person. I think they dislike sending paint and glue in the mail due to the fact it is hazardous materials.
Anime, one of the few things about the internet that doesn't make me hate the internet.
