FUKUOKA (Kyodo) An Internet cafe owner in Tokyo and two other people were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of violating the Copyright Law by posting comics on a Web site without the consent of the authors and publishers, police said.

The arrests, the first in Japan related to the online distribution of “manga,” came after the “cyberpatrol” unit of Fukuoka Prefectural Police examined the Web site dubbed 464.jp in October.
