they're not out to screw people over. licensing laws do exist for a reason and Gaia is doing the best they can with this.

it's not Gaia's fault since FUNimation is the sponsor and they've only got limited regional rights to it.

it's not FUNimation's fault because they're not the copyright holder, they're only the US based company that licensed FMA:B.

it's not the US's fault because they didn't make all the international copyright and licensing laws that require Gaia to limit who can buy it directly.


:I then whos fault is it your just confusing me. pff kill em all i say xD
it's the "fault" of the people from multiple nations that helped create the current set of laws regarding how copyrights and licenses are handled right now. but those laws WERE created for a reason and do serve a valid purpose. but they do need to be reevaluated a bit thanks to how things are with the internet.

but there's really no reason to rage. you CAN buy it in the marketplace and there WILL be people in the US buying extra to sell to those outside the US so the prices won't get too high. and you have to spend money to get them anyway, so you may be able to work out a deal with someone if you can buy Gaia Cash yourself, such as you buy them an item from the Cash Store that costs about the same as the FMA:B RIG and send it to them and they buy the RIG and send it to you.


but the thing is i seem to not get how only america can have these shows and yet because of licensing we cant have it? we have to buy it (expensively might i add) to even get the right to watch it when it should be accessible to everyone who wants to watch, and have the option to buy only when they have seen it which i do if i watch an anime on the net i like i will buy it to support the anime. :I but i just hate these laws that they have at the moment.
America isn't the only place that has licensed FMA;B. it's just only licensed by FUNimation in the US. in order for an anime to be released outside of Japan another company has to buy the license from the Japanese copyright holder so they can translate and distribute it. they may also get digital rights with that license or even some merchandising rights as well. a company that licensensed it will only have the rights to either their country or general region depending on the exact agreement they made with the copyright holder.

this system exists because before international copyrights existed someone from country A could come up with, say, a bestselling book that gets them a lot of fame and money and yet someone from country B could start repriting it, selling it, and make a lot of money off it themselves without the person who wrote it in country A getting any money from the sales in country B. essentially this allowed people to unfairly make profits off the works of others provided they were from a different country. so international copyright agreements, and licensing laws, came to be.


well i can get that since my friend does not buy from a legit source and she bought china remakes and they sucked so bad the quality was terrible and the figurines did not even fit on their stands =w= so shes loosing money not gaining by buying cheep crap from china

This is the shop keeper, she has another look, but I've only managed to see it once. Apparently she's a reverse tsundere.

And here's the shop. So there you go, and sorry you can't see it for yourself.

and the Chinese companies that sell those cheap bootlegged goods made money, none of which goes back to the people who own the copyright to the franchise.

So since you can't get you're VIRTUAL ITEMS, you want to act violently towards the owners of a site that tried to please you and a fan-base?

Where are your parents? Now those are the people that need to be slapped.

Gaia doesn't care.

The only thing they're interested in is getting money for promoting FMA.

i know and even i coulda made a better job of the figurine then what they did! one of the figurines wasnt even painted! wtf! =w= we should be blaming the people who do copyright to make profit and to shut them down rather then the customers suffering and resorting to buy those bootlegged items just to have what americans have!

One, it's because of licensing in the US.
Two, just buy it in the marketplace.
Three, the store only has one item in it.
Four, she has no backstory yet.

dont worry im with ya, ive been here since 07 and ive seen gaia go downhill, they need to give more back to the community id like to see admins and normal gaians (not the noobs,trolls,etc) actually interact and give us what we want~

There are alternatives to this item. I don't even think the backstory is up yet anyway but bet it will show up in forums and you can check it out. I've seen people dress up nicely as characters of FMA without this item. I know it sucks but you'll have to find other ways and it JUST started so who knows. The price will probably go down. It costs gaia cash to buy them though that's why they are so expensive also for the fact that they are new. Seems your venting though so not sure how you will react to anyone trying to explain or give you advice since all you want to do is get violent xD
