Woah. Never seen something like this coming. Maybe others will learn something out of this?

Arresting? Are people out of their minds?

according to this article, he put this stuff up in the future? that's impressive, seeing as december of 2010 is still 6 months off.

Dang, you beat me to it... But the question still applies.

Is this a typo, or a fabrication?

Can we get some clarification on this? It's extremely confusing and makes little to no sense.

Makes sense. Scanlations for One Piece here are already four days in advance of when the actual chapter is released in Japan.

That very fact actually makes me very unhappy. =/

Nothing else has worked so far. Arresting may seem a little extreme, but "don't do the crime, if you can't do the time" (although I doubt anyone did any "time.")

It's copyright infringement, not stealing. This whole thing is absurd.

I never understood why people post manga scans on Youtube.

this is too extreme. japan has a very high conviction rate. and the law won't just let the kid go with a slap on the wrist. his entire future is kinda ruined: http://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Criminal_justice_sys​tem_of_Japan Remember that JAXA train groping accused guy who committed suicide?

copyright infringement is serious but when you compare it to crimes like murder, rape, terrorism or drug possesion/distribution - it is not that serious.
