Fan-made subtitles for TV shows and movies are illegal, court rules

Fansubbers, of course, maintain that they are doing a Good Thing by allowing millions more people to enjoy films and TV shows that they might not otherwise be able to understand. BREIN, however, asserts that subtitles are mostly used by people who download pirated media, and thus fansubbers are not only violating copyright themselves but also inciting piracy and damaging the market. – Sebastian Anthony, Ars Technica http://ift.tt/2pKInWX
