And, of course, it never works out, because it turns out that the western company mistook a vocal minorty for a majority, so the sales figures don't get near to the projections. Result = western audience inevitably loses out.

Don't let facts get in the way of anything, like.
IIRC the ones GamingCX uploaded were "unlisted" so it's not something Fuji could have just easily scanned YouTube for, I think.

Anyway, all the subbed epsiodes have vanished from YouTube now. Personally, I think it stinks. Preventing any future unofficial subs, fine. I'm not the sort of person who usually complains about freebies vanishing - I buy official anime DVD releases, for example, rather than downloading fansubs, because I'd like to ensure that we continue to get official releases - but this is a different matter. Without all those fansubs, there wouldn't even be an English-speaking audience for this show. The whole reason why it's now a financially viable option is entirely because of the work of the people who've put all the work to date.

Because waiting a couple of days for the dust to settle before flying in waving pitchforks isn't possible. I forget this.
YouTube is YouTube, relying on them to eternally host illegal content is foolish. This content is available elsewhere (the SA torrent tracker is one of the cleanest, fastest and well supported torrent network I've ever used) and SA GCCX will continue to sub the episodes until they are either C&D'd or officially licensed elsewhere (they're releasing 2 episodes next week according to the SA thread), just like the vast majority of fansubbers and their own personal ethics.
SA GCCX don't even support GamingCX's YouTube efforts BECAUSE THEY STEAL THEIR SUBS WITHOUT CREDITING THEM
The thing you should actually be worrying about is that the VOD deal is US only. When you can't get the content anywhere and not even be able to pay for it, that's a problem.
