Three men in Japan were arrested for uploading anime episodes and images. Two of them were caught uploading episode 23 of Idolmaster Xenoglossia and episode 2 of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 to the Winny network (Japanese file sharing network). The third man was charged for uploading a virus with images from Clannad.

That is just evil , for uploading Clannad virus.
and for other 2 guys , i wonder if ppl who put up the Raw anime on the internet, will stop do that.


I hope they don't stop because as someone said above (I forget who, sorry) that means no subs.
As for the guy who put the virus with the Clannad pic., well, he deserved to get caught. But it is a funny story.

But where were they? i don't get how they were caught

They probably got caught the same way that Singaporeans got caught by Odex (their ISPs matched up their names with the IP adresses that were being tracked)

On another note, I just hope that this doesn't mean that raw uploaders are going to get scared off. No raws = no subs >.<


QFT. Even though most the shows I watch have already been licensed XD As long as we don't get our fool selves caught.

That's be a suprise for Clannad fans.
