On the topic of bootlegs Please note that some Anime companies are going out of business do to influx of people getting bootlegs(an fansubs TT_TT ) Last i heard Funimation is close to declaring bankrupt

Heard from where? Funimation is at ACEN right now talking about how they're in negotiations for licensing more One Piece episodes/movies as well as a number of other licensing announcements.

It's true that bootlegs hurt the industry. That's a given. That's why you want to make sure you're on guard so that you don't buy a fake product and not only get an inferior product, but basically support the robbers. :)

How to protect yourself while buying at fanime
Avoid buying Grab Bags.  http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,16052.0.html  Unless you buy them with a few other people and split but the loot to who wants what.
