At least, if you’re living in Japan. A 14-year-old was arrested this past Monday for allegedly distributing One Piece, Naruto, Major and Gintama on YouTube before they were officially released. It is unknown as to how the male middle school student was able to attain these manga’s before their release date but he’s been doing it for quite some time; December 22, 2009 to February 9, 2010. The suspect reportedly admitted to photographing the manga, page by page, and uploading the images as videos without authorization and is against YouTube’s terms and conditions.
