Three Manga Pirates Sentenced to Prison in Japan

Story :

Three men who operated a popular site indexing pirated copies of manga publications have been jailed in Japan. The sentences range from two years and four months to three years and six months. The men are former student graduates in their 20s.

With the support of the Japanese government, content creators in Japan are attempting to crack down on the unauthorized reproduction and sharing of copyrighted content.

Due to their effect on local markets, those who offer copyrighted manga and anime works appear to be a priority.

The latest to fall foul of the authorities are three men said to be the operators of once-popular site ‘Haruka Yume no Ato’, a platform that indexed links to manga content without permission from rights holders.
