The Recording Industry Association of Japan—the RIAJ—has come up with a literal bandaid solution to illegal downloading of music and media. Check out the following RIAJ press release (goofy Google Translate).
STOP! Illegal downloads campaign
RIAJ / 2013 July 24 (Google Translate)
…with the revised copyright law that came into force in October 2012 for the purpose authorizing (prison) penalties for private illegal downloading, the RIAJ will continue to implement educational activities with this campaign this fiscal year… as educational tools to distribute at summer concert festivals such as Fuji Rock Festival ’13 and SUMMER SONIC 2013, the RIAJ will offer free novelty bandages (shown below) with Japan’s new legal download “El mark” → .
