Random Topics - Fansubbing

Fansubbing is the act of taking a foreign movie, show, or cartoon and translating it to a language other than the original. Fansubbing is often done because a dubbing company heavily edits a film or show without releasing an uncut version (for example, 4Kids dubbed, edited, and censored the Japanese cartoon One Piece without making or releasing an uncut version). However, because it violates copyright laws, fansubbing is controversial.

3 I do QC for a fansubbing group. One of the titles we do is indeed one that the US distributors butchered. All the others we do are old shows that will never, ever get licensed here. Basically, if an anime was made in the 20th century and it hasn't come over yet, it won't ever get released legally. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on March 29, 2011, 1:51 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 If a dubbing company acquires the rights to an anime and refuses to release it in its uncut, unedited, "non-dumbed down" glory (4Kids, I'm giving you a dirty look right now!!), fansubbing may be the glimmer of hope you're looking for. Now, the only problem left is to overcome that hurdle of copyright violation... -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 15, 2009, 6:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
