      Because that's a really good way to lose the license?

      IIRC, Viz's release of the X manga was put on hold because they used
      anime artwork on one of the covers back in the days of $16 flipped
      graphic novels. Going against the licensor's translation notes is a
      little more serious.

      Doing things without permission is why Four Shoujo Stories went out of print.

      In the case of Godzilla's roar and the Simpsons, Fox being bigger than
      Toho just might have something to do with it.
