Don't Fansub That Show, My Friend

Tokyo Anime Center Posts "Stop! Fan-Subtitle" Notice (Updated) - Anime News Network

For those who think the Japanese animation industry is ambivalent about Americans pirating and fan-subtitling their videos:  The Tokyo Anime Center (which we visited when we were in Tokyo last year) has posted a sign in multiple languages -- including English -- warning fans not to make, watch, or download fansubs.

When this story was posted on Anime News Network, one witty reader commented that if the sign had been translated by fans, the translation would have been more accurate and the sign would have been released sooner.
