Man Arrested for Posting "Crayon Shin-chan" and "Black Jack" Anime on Video Sharing Site FC2

"I uploaded them to make some extra spending money."

ACCS (The Association of Copyright for Computer Software) reported today on June 24 that Okinawa Prefectural Police's Living and Safety Division and its Naha Station arrested a 48-year-old male contracted worker from Sapporo-city, Hokkaido, on suspicion of copyright infringement (infringement of public transmission rights), then referred the case to the Naha District Public Prosecutors Office on June 19. Prior to this, the man was already arrested for another illegal uploading of anime and films on May 28.

 

The suspect is accused of posting the 2013 anime film Crayon Shin-chan: Very Tasty! B-class Gourmet Survival!! onto video-sharing website FC2 without the copyright holder Shin-Ei Animation's permission on January 3, 2014, then also posting the 2011 OVA Black Jack Final Karte 11 owned by Tezuka Productions onto the site on January 29. He has already admitted his charge and said, "I uploaded

them to make some extra spending money."

 

No matter whether it is for profit or non-profit purposes, posting copyrighted materials onto the video sharing

sites without the right holders' permission is illegal in Japan.
