Japanese Web site operators arrested for posting manga scans

Japanese Web site operators arrested for posting manga scans

[Ad box removed; this image serves to flag pages that need to be updated in my log file.]

The operators of a Web site in Japan have been arrested for posting manga scans.  (The charge being copyright infringement.) This case doesn't actually seem all that interesting to me - it's open-and-shut copyright infringement, it sounds like it may have been triggered partly by plans to make the enterprise commercial, and it doesn't seem to involve doujinshi or fan translations, either of which would implicate more aspects of collaborative culture and would be much more interesting from the point of view of North American anime fans.  Nonetheless, it's being claimed to be the first arrest in Japan for online posting of manga scans, and that may be of some interest.
