Japan: Police arrest "anti DRM" journalists...

DRM 0

Modellismo (1676052) writes "Last week 4 journalists from SANSAI BOOKS have been arrested for selling, through the company website, a copy of a magazine published last year (with a free cover mounted disc) focused on how to backup/rip DVDs. They violated Japan's Unfair Competition Prevention Law that recently has been revised to make illegal the sale of any DRM circumvention device or software.

It's interesting to note that Japanese cyber Police could arrest the Amazon Japan CEO too as the online giant is selling a lot of magazines, books and software packages for DVD copy and ripping: exactly what put in trouble Sansai Books staff.

Will Japanese Cyber Police raid Amazon Japan offices like they have done with Sansai Books?!"
