    The Association of Copyright for Computer Software (ACCS) announced on September 25 that the Gifu prefectural police's cybercrime division arrested and charged a man on September 19 for allegedly using the file sharing software Perfect Dark to illegally upload and distribute manga.

    According to authorities, the suspect is a 54-year-old unemployed male from Kyoto, and he had been distributing a color version of volumes 79 and 80 of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga since at least January 31. The suspect admitted in his affidavit that he uploaded the manga because he "wanted other people to know about it."

    Many arrests for similar copyright violations using Share and other file-sharing software have been made in Japan in recent years. However, Perfect Dark has more robust anonymity features compared to earlier programs, and arrests of people allegedly using the software have been somewhat less common.

    I read this the other day! I feel bad for him in a way, he was trying to spread the love of one piece, I mean there are a lot of people who rely on people like him to get one piece where they live, but....police are starting to crackdown hard on the ones who do it. All mangas and anime need to be more readily available to everyone, that way no one has to go to jail trying to share it.

    Would be a start if Viz just opened the website for every country.

    Same in Germany. But maybe open the site for countries that don't have OP yet. This way everyone could enjoy it :).

    I think it would be great if Viz would offer subscriptions to as many countries as possible. I have a subscription to jump and to the Crunchy roll Manga (it comes with a subscription to Crunchy roll). The only time I use other sites is when I don't have another choice (looking at you Viz for dropping Gintama....:rage::shifty::finger: ) , so I am thankful for those who post!

    Yeah I feel bad for this one. It's one thing making a profit out of it, but outside of Japan those color mangas don't exist. We can't even get to them.

    Use VPNs guys.
