    I really hope this doesn't turn into a flamewar like with victinigate...
    Back on topic, In japan, there is no fair use law. So they can bust people for things like this.

    And the leaker probably knew of the risks. If he didn't, well now he knows. And this will probably discourage other early leakers. Cellphones can embed tracking info in pictures, so the police can use the geotracking to find out where it was taken.

    I guess I can see why TCPi would want this guy put away...I know if I was trying to release a new series in controlled stages, and someone kept screwing it up, Id want it stopped.

    As a fan, though, Im annoyed. I looked forward to the CoroCoro leaks before BW were released. Now its highly unlikely we will get more, both for the Gen V Pokemon yet to be revealed, and the inevitable Gen VI.

    Companies hate leaks, and not just in Japan.

    I still remember some sites were banning posting of Halo Reach Magazine scans to avoid takedown notices.

    Also, activision is taking down early gameplay videos of CoD Black ops. MS did the same with reach.

    Or you know, someone could buy the magazine and scan it and put it on the net. That usually works.

    lol too funny. It happened with the Napster guy. Arrested and sued and so were many of the illegal followers.

    O_o The guy probably thought he was bringing a service to the people.

    How odd. Oh well. He's an Internet SuperHero to me for doing that.

    I just hope it doesn't totally screw up any possible future leaks...

    How dare he leak scans via his mobile phone? This man is obviously Satan incarnate. I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you.
    "95% of the people who are able to read kana think that this automatically makes them know the entire Japanese language, as opposed to actually knowing little more than a first-year student of the language. If you are one of the 5% of that population who believes that being able to read kana is not impressive at all, copy and paste this into your sig."

    So, the guy that leaked the real scans that no one believed because they contained Chaoboo?
    Ha. But seriously, I think Japan's copyright policy is a bit extreme, worse than that of the US. But, eh. I can't do anything about it.

    To be fair, since there are ALOT more fans for this sort of thing (anime, manga and video games) in Japan, it has to be taken very seriously. Otherwise everyone would do it and ultimately it would hurt the industry.

    I assume that you're assuming people knowing whats in the magazine before they buy it will discourage them to buy it, which still applies after the magazine is released (as scans will be posted post-release). The only way they could prevent people from "hurting the industry" is to stop people sharing any content of the magazine with anyone else in any form, so that people HAVE to buy it themselves, which is obviously madness.

    But still, despite the ethics of the law he knew it was in place when he leaked those scans. I feel sad that he got arrested but it is his own fault.

    How is my post 'lol too funny'-worthy? Perhaps I'm misreading your intent as text is a rather poor medium for conveying tone at times, but that came off as somewhat snobby. I asked a legitimate question, as I obviously knew of no other times this had happened. It's not like I scour the news looking for stories of people getting arrested for leaking video game images.

    So, tell me about this 'Napster guy'. I know nothing of it.
