Man Arrested for Uploading "Minami-ke Tadaima" Anime Episode

The endless war against anime piracy still continues

On October 25, Kanagawa Prefectural Police's Cyber Crime Control Office and Kamakura Station referred a 32-year-old male office worker who lived in Kamakura-city, Kanagawa Prefecture, to the Yokohama district public prosecutor's office on suspicion of copyright infringement (infringement of public transmission rights). The suspect is accused of using the file-sharing software Share to upload the 10th episode of the Minami-ke Tadaima TV anime to the internet without the copyright holder's permission. A police investigator in Kanagawa Prefectural Police found the crime during the cyber patrol and reported it to the copyright holder through The Association of Copyright for Computer Software (ACCS). The suspect has already confessed to his crime. As we have reported, uploading and downloading copyrighted materials without permission are illegal, and we have seen so many arrest cases in Japan (check the list below).
