It seems that I have been getting more and more information from other blogs in Japan recently because they seem to have much better information than anything in the press. The author of the blog Shisaku has a post on something that I completely missed. Naturally, the Japanese and Western MSM completely missed it. This would be understandable on the part of Japan's media as it is part of the problem in this post. And there ain't nobody gonna in that group gonna take any big risks exposing the governments little plots.

Anyway, on the news over the last few days, there have been reports about how the police made their very first arrest in Japan for writing a computer virus. Since making a virus is not illegal here, they instead charged him with violations of the copyright law since he used copyrighted animations to spread the virus. (Yes, it is quite hilarious that the copyright law is being enforced. Maybe I should tell about my experience with the flagrant violation of copyright law by a company I once worked for and how the Japanese government did nothing once they learned of it.)

I won't go into detail about the post on Shisaku as you can read it in it's entirety . He connects a just began ad campaign about checking computers for anti-virus with the creative arrest. See Shisaku here.
