The cyber crime unit of the Hyōgo Prefectural Police arrested Kōhei Miyagishi, a 32-year-old elementary school teacher from Kanazawa City, on Wednesday on suspicion of using the Share file-sharing software to upload anime online without the copyright holders' permission.

The suspect allegedly had over a thousand television anime episodes, each about 30 minutes long. The police are investigating how the suspect acquired the anime by analyzing the suspect's confiscated computer.
