Fukuoka Police arrested three individuals on Tuesday on suspicion of uploading game software illegally onto the peer-to-peer file sharing program WinMX.

Those arrested include 41-year-old office worker Takao Ishii of Ebisu, Shibuya; 32-year-old part-time worker Yūsuke Suzuki of Iwata, Shizuoka; and 25-year-old Hijiyama, Hiroshima resident Nozomi Hattori.

Each suspect allegedly used personal computers to share 19 to 22 copyrighted games (including WarioWare: Touched!, Another Code: Two Memories, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Mega Man Battle Network, and Mr. Driller 2) from July to August. According to the authorities, all three admitted to the charges and had been distributing games on WinMX for the past seven to 10 years.

The Japanese authorities are simply grabbing a few folks from each network (maybe even the same folks using multiple networks ) and making an example of them as they have done before.

The network receiving the most attention is the Share network that was the successor to Winny, a program that was inspired by WinMX , the other network they have looked over was Cabos,  but like WinMx its not the focus of their attention atm, Share is their true target due to its usage pattern by Japaneses folks.
