Cops in Yokohama Japan have collared an alledged arch-criminal mastermind! Twenty-seven-year-old Makoto Sekiguchi was recently arrested for uploading unreleased Pokémon characters from Pocket Monsters: Black & White to the internet. The horror!
Sekiguchi reportedly uploaded six images of Pokémans like Chaoboo on September 1, a full 17 days before the official release of the game in Japan. Sekiguchi is charged with violating copyright infringement.
In a deposition, Sekiguchi said, "Thought I would show everyone the characters that haven't been made public yet."
I, for one, feel much safer now that Sekiguchi is off the streets.
