Quote from: "Tsubasa"Lets get one thing straight: by law, fansubs, in any form, are illegal. The argument that they are OK because the title is unlicensed in the region is completely fallicious for most countries because of the Berne Convention, which upholds internal copyrights for literary and artistic works.On the subject of HK subs, I am under the impression that they are very much illegal, regardless of the region and whether they are downloaded or not, as they have been reabsorbed by China. Originally, Hong Kong did not sign the Berne Convention, which means that bootleg literary and artistic works were legal, but only within the confines of the country. As a bit of information for you, the other countries that did not sign the Berne Convention include Singapore, Taiwan, and South Africa.
