I see the point, but--for example--this list has regularly featured
translations of Sadamoto's EVA manga, even though the exclusive
rights to publish it in English within various territories (including
North America, where many of the readers of this list live) have been
held under license by Viz and regularly renewed since 1997. I want to
emphasize that I'm not pointing this out now because I believe an
issue should necessarily be made of it, only that it represents an
arguable violation as well, even if, like video, it is not mentioned
in the mailing list rules.
