Moral and Ethical Notes

Well if you've made it to this page, then you're concerned about some of the suggestions mentioned in my little Anime Survival Guide.

Let's be frank. Some of my suggestions involve a certain skirting of copyright laws. I'm not saying that I do this, nor that you should either. I'm merely pointing out that copyright violations are a serious matter and should be treated as such. Any unauthorized copying of works not belonging to you may result in all sorts of nasty legal actions.

Keep the right perspective in this please. If you copy a tape rented elsewhere, like many folks do, this does not mean you own the contents of said tape. Never sell or rent an unaurthorized copy for profit.

This goes for copying music, art and other materials.

Flagrant abuse of copyright laws will kill the anime industry in this country.

Please be smart, and don't ruin it for the rest of us.
