Over 200 files... No wonder people started to notice. I wonder if it was only domestic P2P or international?

I'm interesting in knowing how this happened.
Giving unlicensed material to fans isn't illegal, especially if a series would never come to the states.
Does anyone know the particulars?

I hope this guy can come out on top.

Japan was the first country to make file sharing illegal.
Did no one know this? >__<;

so no one can share files at all.
how do they run businesses? you have to share with your co-worker.
Or is it just tv shows?

Wow that should just make us all more appreciative for the fan subbers.

Why??? :scratch:

File sharing and fansubbing are two different issues.

As it is currently written, Japan's Copyright Law only prohibits unauthorized uploaders. It expressly allows people to download for private use, which is why prosecutions in Japan have almost exclusively targeted unauthorized uploaders. The Japanese government is pushing a ban on unauthorized downloads as well, despite receiving thousands of messages from citizens opposing the ban.
