actually i've heard and i think it might have been from this ML that
Fansubs (in the US at least) aren't illegal untill and unless the anime
in question is distributed commercially in a subbed/dubbed format by a
domestic distribution company that has aquired the liscense to the
property, untill they do fansubs are stil fair use, so by this argumetn
you can have all the fun you want fan-subbing stuff like Gundam F91,
Char's counterattack, or Gundm X but you'd be in hot water up to your
neck if you tried that with 0083, Gundam Wing, or the UC 0079 movies
