A 39-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of violating copyright law by selling software that deactivates a DVD recorder function that prevents unlimited copying of digital broadcast TV programs, police said.

The arrest of Tetsuya Masumura is the first for illegal sales of the software, which deactivates the Dubbing 10 function on DVD recorders, making it possible to produce unlimited DVD copies of the broadcasts, police said.
