I think that uploading illegally should stop and that this man was obviously breaking the law. But anime companies should really work on making their DVDs more affordable and getting them to audiences outside of Japan faster... So I see it on both sides, I guess... But it's good that the police are taking catching uploaders of anime more seriously.

Wait a second. I'm not too clear on the laws of Japan on uploading, but was the upload he did from a TV broadcast recording or a company manufactured DVD? If its a DVD upload I can understand, but if its a TV recording then its a load of BS for them to even try to penalize him.

Technically it's illegal to upload copyrighted materials such as anime so that dude was just found guilty and was sent to jail. Though in Japan it is legal to download illegal stuff. And the anime industry isn't really profiting since no ones buying the DVD's since it's too expensive and many would just choose to download illegally through the internet. So the japanese goverment are banning illegal uploads of anime to help make the anime industry thrive more and it is against copyright laws to upload anime anyways.

Of course, because if there's no upload no one could download which means that no one could download illegal TV ripped anime so people will have to buy the anime DVD's and anime sale will rise. And that's the whole point why the japanese goverment is only banning uploaders and not downloaders.
