Kazue Orita, a tutoring school manager in Eniwa City in the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, was arrested this week on suspicion of selling pirated anime DVDs. The man allegedly sold unauthorized DVD copies of My Neighbor Totoro, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and other Studio Ghibli movies through Internet auctions and other means. Officials said he sold a six-disc package of pirated DVDs, smuggled from China, for 7,500 yen (about US$65). He allegedly sold over 400 DVDs for 530,000 yen (US$4,600). Police are investigating the details of the smuggling methods used. Source: STV (The Sapporo Television Broadcasting), with video
