Are we at any risk taking already downloaded Media files on a Laptop or Harddrive to Japan with the new Downlaoding laws?
I am leaving on a 5 month trip to Japan in 3 weeks and have recently heard rumours about the new Downlaoding law in Japan. I was planning on bringing my hard drive which is full of music, movies and TV shows that i have accquired off friends and have no idea which have been downloaded and which have been bought. Am worried because ive read that if you get caught with a downloaded file you face 2 years jail time and have been told that your computer could get checked at the airport (this was word of mouth and could be untrue). Am i at risk or is the law focused more on catching people that are downloading Media whilst in Japan?
