Japanese police arrested a 52-year-old resident of Nagoya, who posted gameplay videos on YouTube. He was detained on charges of copyright infringement and publication of spoilers.
The YouTuber posted videos on his channel with the passage of the visual novel STEINS;GATE: My Darling’s Embrace, in which you can see, among other things, the ending of the game. This did not suit the Kadokawa company that owns the rights to the game. The company also did not like that the YouTuber monetized the videos by placing ads in them.
The arrested man has already admitted his guilt. He told police he knew he was breaking the law when he posted the video. What punishment he faces now is not reported.
