The serious kind that can land you into jail!
Take this current news of a Japanese student getting busted, having all his equipment confiscated, and his money being picked through with a fine tooth comb.
His problem? Only uploading 3,800 volumes, earning 27,000 Yen (about $3,300 USD), and leaving trails all over the place in his blog, Megaupload, and lots of hits and comments from visitors.
There are no news yet of jail time or fines but all in all, it seems like the Japanese manga publishers are glaringly mad and they’re not going to put up with it anymore. ..OK, it’s mainly the police who did the busting and tracking but we know ho really had a hand in it don’t we?
Lesson: Be careful of what you upload. You may end up in a cell with bars.
