North American anime distributor Funimation provided ANN with a statement on Tuesday regarding an update ANN posted on Monday about Funimation's lawsuit against A.D. Vision.
While ADV has a point regarding FUNimation coming close to a monopoly, in this type of niche market, that's what we need...and it's not like FUNimation is abusing any potential power they have. DVD and Blu-ray prices are incredible competitive lately. Also, their Elite service, while still painfully slow in expanding to other devices, is also great for the market. Aside from them, Crunchyroll is the only other (large) streaming service, and they don't offer dubbing. So I say all the more power to FUNimation.
