How anime licensing works.
Nearly all Japanese anime contents is created in Japan by Japanese companies. Some anime is created by foreign companies, particularly Chinese companies. The anime creation process typically includes funding that is provided by the original content service – usually a TV Network in Japan or another country. These TV companies invest large amounts of funds into the anime content creation studio, and then they receive a share of the ownership of the final production.
In such cases, these companies also typically own all the licensing rights for their country – such as Japan. The rest of the content rights are controlled by a committee of all the investors in that particular anime. There may be as many as 30 investors. Whenever another country would like to show an anime show, they must contact this committee (usually by contacting the largest investor, often a TV station), and make an offer.
Typically anime is licensed by distributors who then sell the anime in DVDs and elsewhere. Many companies have local licensing companies. Our website then works with these local distributing companies to stream anime, with the permission of the local licensee.
