One of the malls that is famous for selling bootlegs has been getting a fair amount of press for all the busts that have been happening there.
How is it different? Aren't other sellers selling HKs too? They should be busted instead of JJ...since JJ is seriously one of the nicest sellers I've ever encountered.

Havn't you heard? Canada loves wasting taxpayer money 10x more than America does... and that's pretty damn bad.

Re: JJ arrested.

I don't know any other online HK retailers from Canada other than JJ. There have been big moves to crack down on the sale of bootlegs in the land of the maple leaf.

Re: JJ arrested.

Ok sorry for not too many updates. I was on vacation at my parents so attempted to stay off the inet as much as possible. I will see if i can find out more info about how JJ is doing and future of things here sans the store.

Re: JJ arrested.

Shit, this sucks. I never post on the forum but I still visit this site frequently to buy anime from time to time. This and the Gamestop I work at are the only places where I could get the best priced anime and it would be a shame if this site goes down like CJV. I just don't trust other sites. I always believed nothing truly illegal was going on here. I thought there was like a loophole with selling HKDVD's.

Re: JJ arrested.

Think loopholes are more for Ebay sellers like sundevil and that sphiatt etc. They don't seem to be getting busted any time soon.

Re: JJ arrested.

Another thing we don't know fully what JJ is being charged with or even if an american company is behind it or if its the Candadian police that are behind it. Hopefully we will find out all this info out before JJ goes to trial.

Re: JJ arrested.

Wow, canada must really be different than america then. There's no way they can hold you this long and not even tell you what the charge is...

Re: JJ arrested.

I think that it's basically a bunch of bs, although I've also gotta admit that I rarely if ever buy hkdvds anymore-for me it's either the netflix burn and return program-or fansubs-or cheap R1's.

Re: JJ arrested.

JJ isn't being held... he's out on bail and one of his conditions is to stay away from the internet (this site in particular).

The Canadian laws on pirated materials are pretty straightforward. If you are distributing bootlegged material then you are breaking the law (you don't even have to be getting paid for it... just distributing).

Schultz posted the biggest question that still hasn't been answered so far, who is prosecuting JJ? Chances are good that it's the Canadian government as there has been a lot of pressure on the government to cut down on piracy activity up here. I'm not sure what that means for JJ in the long run but I'm hoping that he gets away with a slap on the wrist rather than having them make an example of him.

Chinese saying, Kill one to warn hundreds!
JJ's unlucky. I'm sure there are still many other Canadian bootleg sellers too.

Re: JJ arrested.

That's messed up. People wouldn't bootleg anime in the first place if they made it affordable. I mean who wants to pay 199.99 for a whole 24-26 episode series? that's ridiculous. i hope he isn't fined too much. he was really doing a great service to people who don't want to fish 200 bucks out of their pocket for one anime series. not to mention he was an honest seller and i always got my dvds quick and on time too.
