Man accused of posting 14,000 porn clips online

Oct 17,2006
Busan police said yesterday they had arrested and briefly detained a 29-year-old who they said distributed 14,000 Japanese pornographic video clips on the Internet, which police estimated was 70 percent of all such online clips posted in Korea.
The suspect, who was not identified, was charged with distributing pornography at his arrest on Tuesday, and released on his own recognizance pending further investigation. Police said they had been tracking him through the Internet since January.
The suspect, a resident of Incheon, earned a total of 50 million won ($52,383), police said.
He started posting Japanese pornographic video clips in April 2004 on a Web site where people can download videos through a peer-to-peer network. The suspect built a following by posting the clips the day after the films were released in Japan, along with detailed descriptions and his own reviews.
As online users grew, the suspect quit his job as an employee at an IT company later that year.
He began downloading 20 to 30 Japanese pornographic films per day from Japanese peer-to-peer Web sites and posting the clips on a Korean Web site. He received a commission from that site when an online user downloaded his clip. His family thought he was running an online shopping mall, police said.
The suspect told police, “I have not been able to take a rest for the last two years because online users have been nagging me to post the latest clips everyday.”
