    So are they going to arrest people who saw Lolita in theaters next? Or own it on DVD? VHS? The novel?

    Oh wait, grabby-hands Charles Brownstein weighs in on the situation? Well I pretty much morally have to say let the guy rot in jail for his babyporno collection then, sorry Chuck.

    I better make sure next time I watch Bible Black to watch the English dub since that'll make them all "at university" instead of "in high school." ;)

    hah.

    wouldn't this make all anime conventions targets of such things?

    I remember my friends from that Animenorth-they were girls- Bougth a shitload of hentai...because they didnt know it was hentai,they only cared the covers were pretty when we opened it to see what we had bougth at the end before we went to the concerts they realized it was hentai....

    they ll never live that one down

    Absolutely not. It was a perfect example of the hypocrisy of law enforcement in this case.

    EDIT: Bottom line, I don't think it's any different at all. Art is in the eye of the beholder, and as long as there's no actual crime being committed in order to create said art (as in actual child pornography), how can it be treated as a crime?
