Japan Police Arrested 19 for Anime/Movie Piracy

Japan Police Arrested 19 for Anime/Movie Piracy

Japanese police have recently arrested 19 people accused of illegally sharing popular anime shows and films without permission from copyright owners. Under pressure from rightsowners, the country enforced new law two years ago which would consider the downloading of unauthorized material as a serious criminal offense. People accused of copyright infringement, even on a small scale, can face up to 2 years prison time.

The first big crackdown was carried out a year ago, when Japanese police carried out searches on more than a hundred locations and arrested 27 individuals suspected of sharing songs, films, TV shows, games and software without permission of copyright owners.
A year passed, and local authorities seem to be flexing their muscles again, now in pursuit of Internet users sharing videos. Anime News Network revealed that between February 25-27 Japanese police raided over a hundred locations across the country again, searching for 24 anime pirates who were alleged to use sharing software like Cabos, Share, Perfect Dark and the infamous Winny.
Thus far, police had arrested 19 suspects, including a 51-year-old man who is alleged to have uploaded a few anime videos illegally as well.
Despite the statistics saying that peer-to-peer file-sharing use is on a downward trend, the Recording Industry Association of Japan claims that the Japanese tough copyright legislation has so far done nothing to boost music sales. However, it is unclear how arrests can help boost those sales either.

boston617 avatarRetarded! Wasting thousands of tax dollors and man hours to raid hundreds of defferent locations across the country again only to get a small number of pirates that could potentially only do UP to 2 years in jail. Im not from there and dont know how things are done there but it just seems like a waste of time to me. The police must be bored in Japan.

ZerlindaX avatar@boston617, it's the pressure they're getting from the
Japan music and movie media. Also realize that Japan have
one of the lowest crime rates in the world, so a hand
full of arrest is headline news there. Probably only
whine up receiving a fine. You're right, it gives the
law enforcement there something to do. The Recording
Industry Association of Japan claims they're losing
sales and money. Why? because music everywhere sucks
these days, plus you could just about find all types
of music on YouTube alone.

Crash1 avatarI wonder what they do about the Anime pirates from OVERSEAS who use a Japanese VPN site, like I do. The site only keeps records for a few days, so they'd be chasing ghosts and waste even MORE money if they were looking for them/me.

BTW, what does the RIAJ have to do with ANIME pirates?? That's a MUSIC organisation, and has little (aside from music videos) to do with Movies/Anime. If the police had arrested some MUSIC pirates it might be valid, and MAYBE make a difference ... but they didn't!
