This reminds me of the situation with PPN a few years ago, except there [i]is[/i] illegal content.
While yes, I do feel that WPM was out of his mind for bringing a camera into a Japanese theater, I also hope that he will be okay. I know that he should not have done what he did, but he is still a Pokémon fan who spent money to travel to Japan for the sake of the fans. Now, whether those fans now despise him for doing so, he had good intentions at heart.
Since I didn't want to get the thread closed I thought I would just post what I think in my blog, that's what it is here for right?
I am not really sure how I feel about it, but I do know what the other members mean taking a camera into the movies and recording it is illegal, there's signs and I think an ad here in Australia when you go to the movies as well (What's the point of that though, half of the time the rest of the world has already seen the movie).
Yeah I know, I'm a stalker.
If you're interested in following me, here's my profile. If you're not interested in following me but do want me to follow you, just post a link to your twitter in the comments section.
The site doesn't allow me to check my contact list for people who also have twitter by the way, which is annoying.

I'm Missingno. Master. But for once in my life, that's not important right now.
As many, if not all of you know, by now, Water Pokemon Master, webmaster of Pokebeach.com, is under legal fire for taking pictures of two new Pokemon within a movie theater. Now, Bulbapedia's staff condemns his actions, as though WPM was a common criminal.
I disagree. I strongly disagree. WPM is to be commended for his dedication to the Pokemon fandom. And this is how we thank him?
I have so much going on over the next couple of weeks, I have no time for BMGf.
So I'll seeya all when everything clears up.
Sorry, but I will be unable to fulfil anything (I.E. reviewing the fic I was meant to review).
the only thing I can keep up with is the RPG Dawn of an Era. That is really all I have time for.
Anyway, to all except those of the RPG mentioned above
If anyone needs me, I'll respond to PMs only.
I'm going away
