fansubbers don't own the rights to anything, distributing the original video (from japan) is already a copyright infringement
but now we are in a way helping (by letting users know via linking) in distributing the files
if you really think you are in the right, then go start your own shit and have funimation go after you and just dispute their claims in court.

Then I'd go download my anime on irc/ddl/usenet/ftp/etc while the rest of the loudmouthed cancer that has been filling up the internet as of late whines to their online friends, or throws around empty threats and meaningless resolutions "never to buy anime from them ever" or something equally inane.
Basically it boils down to this: they're right and we're wrong, dont even try to loophole out of it. Now, how much you care about this fact is up to you. Personally, I'm perfectly fine in my moral vacancy and I could give a shit if those I should be paying tribute to toil in hunger.

They did this because they were launching their special one piece "simulcast" and they wanted all the attention to go to them. After putting out a low video quality version with an obnoxious watermark, they've decided they don't want to do it anymore because someone accessed their site early and put their sub of it on the net before the actual japanese version aired. Funimation is an absolute disgrace to the anime industry
Funimation wrote:As anime fans know, FUNimation Entertainment and Toei Animation had planned for the first ever online simulcast of the series ‘One Piece’ tonight at 9:00 pm CDT., just one hour after its premiere on Japan’s Fuji Television. Unfortunately, in the last 24 hours we have determined that the FUNimation servers were compromised, even though we employ strict security standards. An unknown individual accessed and posted episode 403 online and as a direct result of this illegal act, all U.S. and Canadian fans will be deprived of access to this great anime series for the immediate future. We will make every effort to locate and prosecute the perpetrator(s) to the fullest extent of the law and will provide updates regarding this most serious matter.
