(This is actually from an arrest from pirating on Share as I could not find any picture for this incident.. but I am sure if I did it would like just like this....)The very first arrest has been made on a 46 year old guy in Hokkaido for uploading copyrighted music to a file hosting provider and making the links public.
This is noteworthy because until now the only arrests for illegally pirating has been for uploading to Japanese P2P networks or servers in Japan, but this time the server was located outside the country. (Mediafire)
There are some fuzzy things regarding this case as it he was arrested for 1) Uploading the files and 2) Publishing the links to a public forum.
So people are now asking questions like... what would happen if he just uploaded the files? or if someone else posted the links?.. or if he just posted them on a private mailing list and not to the public?
