Call me shocked! China actually arrested someone for stealing copyrighted stuff from people outside China? I really don't believe it. The jail times don't seem unreasonable either - another shock.

China allow foreign agent to operate in their land successfully?

They do care about copyright when a Chinese company holds a license for the media that is pirated. Which I guess they do for many of the titles on the site. In case there is no money lost for China they wouldn't care.

Japanese anime”? Anime means Japaneseanimation—you can call it Japanese animationor just anime.

In Japanese anime just means cartoons without distinction of where it's from. So to Japanese people Tom and Jerry is anime, for example.

Therefore Japanese newspapers would make a distinction of where the anime comes from. Although, in English version, the term anime was probably used for SEO and headlining purposes.

Well said tora. It is not as if other countries haven't been streaming Japanese content.

I guess that is because you get most of your news from the legacy western media.
