News ADV Head Says UK Issues May Be Due to Illegal Releases

This month's issue of the British anime and manga magazine NEO reports on ADV Films' recent closure of its London branch and its new partnership with Lace Digital Media Sales, a local distributor. The magazine contacted ADV Films CEO John Ledford, and quoted Ledford on the following statements:
Perhaps if so many fans weren't getting their anime from illegal file sharing sites or unlicensed streaming sites, we might have expanded our UK catalogue more quickly. As it stands now, however, we have a better shot at growing our business with Lace than maintaining an overseas branch.
Thank you to Ed L'Ecuyer for the news tip.
