Tokyo police arrested a 21 year-old Chinese man for violating Japanese copyright law. The man, a student at a Japanese vocational school, was taken into custody for selling phony One Piece figurines.
Since February 2011, the man allegedly sold approximately 1,300 fake One Piece figures via online auctions, earning ¥5 million (US$63,000). The man got the figures from China for the equivalent of a few bucks, and then turned around and sold them online in Japan—sometimes for a couple hundred bucks a pop.
Authorities apparently found 85 knock off One Piece figures in the man's residence, located outside Tokyo.
