From October 1, 2020, the operation of so-called “reach sites,” which are websites that aggregate information on links to infringing content, etc., and from January 1, 2021, downloading infringing content, such as manga and books, knowing that the content has been illegally uploaded, will both be subject to criminal penalties. The new law will apply to all users of the Internet.
