30-year-old Unemployed Man Arrested for Uploading "Kingdom" Manga

Another man was arrested for shoplifting of 41 volumes of the manga

Osaka Prefectural Police's Anti Cybercrime Division and Kita-Higashi Station had arrested a 30-year-old unemployed man from Higashi Osaka-city on suspicion of copyright infringement (infringement of public transmission rights), then sent the case to the public prosecutor's office on February 19.

 

The suspect used the file-sharing software Share to upload the 38th volume of Yasuhisa Hara's Kingdom manga onto the internet from his house without the permission of the copyright holder on January 7. He has admitted his charge and said that he started using the software when he was a third grade high school student.

 

Meanwhile, Sapporo-Higashi station in Hokkaido also arrested a 23-year-old male construction worker for shoplifting on February 6. According to the police, the suspect stole the 1st to 41st volumes of the Kingdom manga all at once at a bookstore in Sapporo-city around at 13:50 on February 6. He put all the

tankobons into his shopping bag, but was captured by a clerk after stepping out of the store, then was

handed over to the police. Because so many books had been stolen, the store had kept their eyes on the

man as a suspect using security cameras.
