Although anime industry is considered to be very liberal, piracy issues and mass lawsuits did manage to make their way into it, too. A week ago, the producers of anime series called Fractale ordered distributor Funimation to cease the online broadcast of the show in the US. The reason announced was “piracy concerns”, and a couple days later the distributor launched a lawsuit against 1337 suspected BitTorrent infringers.

Although piracy is an issue troubling nearly all content publishers throughout the world, the responses to piracy differ from publisher to publisher. Meanwhile, now the industry has a perfect example of how not to deal with piracy. The example was recently made by the producers of Fractale series.

A US anime distributor made an attempt to fight the unauthorized distribution of its new series, being ordered by production company to cease the online broadcast on Hulu. The producers required Funimation to remove all pirated copies on the Internet so that the broadcast continued.

In short words, it was a wrong decision – as the broadcast ban was only applied to the United States but not Europe, the order only triggered an increased demand for illegal copies. Meanwhile, the company did nothing to prevent unauthorized copies from showing up on the Internet.

It seems that TV-distributors are still unaware of the fact that making shows unavailable to a certain country will only drive the demand for illegal copies. The day before the 2nd episode of the series was scheduled to be released, its producers finally allowed the online broadcast to continue in the US. Perhaps, they realized a mistake they made, as illegal copies were still very easy to find. Both anime episodes are currently available to American viewers on Hulu.

Although it had seemed that the storm was over, Funimation belied this by announcing lawsuits against 1337 BitTorrent users. This number can make someone laugh, but the lawsuits are a serious issue and should be treated respectively.

Funimation filed lawsuits against over 1,300 suspected BitTorrent users. The individuals are alleged of downloading episode 481 of One Piece, and the distributor seems to expect them to settle after they are named. This is not a surprise, considering that the company is represented by attorney Evan Stone, known for filing lawsuits for adult entertainment companies in 2010.
