Man Arrested for Uploading "Bakuman." Anime to Share

23-year-old man arrested for violating copyright laws by sharing anime on P2P software Share.


According to the Association of Copyright for Computer Software (ACCS), the Yamagata Prefectural Police arrested a salaryman, aged 23, under the suspicion of using P2P file sharing software "Share" to upload anime for free, thus violating copyright laws.

The investigation revealed that on the 26th of April, the man uploaded the 25th episode of the anime "Bakuman." onto Share, where the file could be downloaded by any amount of people.

An investigator had discovered the man's actions while on cyber patrol, and informed the copyright holders via ACCS.

"Manga" ★ Get Now Accessible via Smartphones, Tablets and PCs

Over 27,000 manga available for free via "Manga ★ Get" manga sharing service.


Spicy Soft's manga submission and sharing service "Manga ★ Get" has undergone a makeover. In addition to being able to be read on cellphones as before, the manga can now also be read from PCs, smartphones and tablets.

Manga ★ Get allows users to read the approximately 27,000 manga that have been uploaded, all for free. There have also been cases where the submitted manga has been published into physical volumes.

The makeover this time made for the manga to be readable on PCs, iPhones, iPads, Androids and other smartphones and tablets. Logging in is not even required to read the manga on PCs, smartphones or tablets.

Logged-in users will be able to view their reading history and get the latest updates on manga they had read before and know when new chapters are out, via a bookshelf function. One can even log-in using Twitter, Facebook or Mixi, so the latest updates from the bookshelf can be accessed via PC, cellphone, smartphone or tablet.

In addition, there is a special application made just for the Android platform. It can be downloaded for free from Android Market or au one.

When are people going to learn not to use p2p that uses IP addresses, including torrents. People use IRC (with masking from server), usenet (if you have one), or ssh transfers to others.
