Anime Expo� continues to keep its pledge of having a Exhibit Hall that
sells
non bootleg or �grey market goods� to its attendees. �We strive to
keep a
good environment for both our attendees and the creators of both anime
and
manga. We do not allow these items to be sold within the Exhibit Hall
as it
is unfair to both the artists, who do not get paid for their hard work,
and
the fans who end up paying more for non-bootleg items,� states Lynn
Kurtz
Anime Expo� Exhibit Hall Manager. Any vendor caught offering bootleg
items
for sale will be closed immediately and ordered to leave the hall.
They
will not be permitted back for a period of at least five (5) years.

With strict rules and codes of conduct, Anime Expo� also strives to
protect
its vendors as well from those who shoplift. Any attendee caught
stealing in
the Exhibit Hall will be banned permanently. �We feel that anyone who
would
stoop low enough to steal from a vendor who is trying to make their
living
is not the kind of element we wish to have at the Anime Expo�,� states
Ms.
Kurtz.
