You'd think with DBKai's One Piece beating ratings you would think FUNimation would have picked the show up atleast to stream it. If for the only fact that it is the title that made the company.

If the DBKai people are smart, they'll make it a bidding war to get the licensing.

Really only Viz and Funimation would pick this series up so your not going to get those huge bidding wars you got when Geneon and ADV where major players.

You'd still wait to see who came up with the better offer. And since American companies are cash-strapped right now, who knows if they could afford it? Honestly, I don't think the DB fanbase is anywhere as big now as it used to be; the kidlets are all into Naruto and Bleach now.
