Aion: The Tower of Eternity, otherwise known as The Tower of Aion in Japan, got into the news recently as police made its first arrest for operating a private MMORPG server. Police is intending to prosecute this Free-to-Play illegal server's owner, an Osaka man in his twenties, for criminal copyright infringement. NCsoft and the police also intend to prosecute anyone who played on the server. Both prosecuting an unauthorised server and going so far as to charge its users are firsts for Japan.
