He/She had it coming. He/She Knew they were the one uploading all that stuff. I wonder what kind of person that did that like occupation, background, any previous criminal acts and such.

Wow. Just wow. They're people with red blood just like you, don't worry.

Maybe it might be easier to narrow down those kindof people in the future that are most likely to upload files like that.

Then perhaps we can trace their DNA and create an anti-crack vaccine in the near future.

This is why this kind of stuff was made a criminal rather than civil offense in Japan


That's where I'm confused as well. Under the NET Act in the US, this is a criminal offense.

Problem is whether you want to burn PR going after someone civilly (and to be fair, the costs Funi were asking to settle were pretty fair, IIRC) or burn the PR should someone be facing jail time.

OTOH, I think a lot of that flak would be taken by the govt, since it'd be a criminal matter at the Federal level, opposed to a civil trial.
