Japan download laws


Recommended Posts

On October 1, the Japanese government began to enforce their new draconian download laws (yes, download, not only upload), two years in prison, $25,000 fine per instance of downloading a copyrighted file. I live in Tokyo, so its enough to scare me off of downloads. They say they will enforce it by making ISPs install tracking software directly in their own servers. If this is the case, I wonder if the standard tactics like VPN will be effective. Does anyone have specialist knowledge of this?
