Missed It: Ruling Vs. Japanese BBS

I totally missed this story, which just now scrolled up on the Manga News Service site as the 03-04-05 entry. According to posting, a court ruled that the manager of the BBS was ordered to pay 1.2 million yen for a copyrighted manga reprinted on-line. This was a reversal of a previous ruling that said the manager was not responsible for violation but rather the person who posted the material was. One and half million yet is approximately $11,500 in U.S. currency.
