Fansubs for TV shows and movies are illegal, court rules 

Fansubbing—the unofficial creation of fan-made subtitles for TV shows and movies—is illegal, a Dutch court ruled this week.The Free Subtitles Foundation, after coming under fire from the Netherlands’ anti-piracy association BREIN, decided to raise some money and take BREIN to court. The Foundation’s lawyer told TorrentFreak that the lawsuit sought to clarify whether the creators of a TV show or movie can reserve the right to create and distribute subtitles.
