■ Overview of the movie “Winny”
Will the craftsman who made the knife used in the murder be arrested? To protect the future and rights of engineers,
A true story of men who fought against power and the media.
In 2002, the developer Isamu Kaneko (Masahiro Higashide) develops innovative software “Winny” that allows easy file sharing, and publishes the trial version on “2channel”. “Winny”, which appeared like a comet, is a system that allows users to exchange data directly, and it quickly expands its market share. However, behind the scenes, a large amount of movies, games, music, etc. are uploaded illegally, and young people download them one after another, gradually developing into a social problem.
While illegal uploaders were arrested one after another, developer Kaneko was also arrested in 2004 on suspicion of assisting in violation of the copyright law. Toshimitsu Dan (Takahiro Miura), a lawyer well versed in cybercrime, said that he would defend the developer if he was arrested. formed an attorney team. Although he argued with Kaneko about the unfairness of the police’s arrest at the trial, he was found guilty in the first trial. However, the threads of fate cross and develop into an incident that will shake the world. Why was a genius developer crushed by a Japanese national organization? This work is based on the true story of men who fought against power and media to protect the future and rights of developers.
“Winny” said to be the pioneer of blockchain technology used in Bitcoin, NFT, etc.
Developed by Isamu Kaneko (handle name: 47), this file-sharing software uses distributed file system technology to share files among multiple computers connected to the Internet. Anonymity was very high because it developed P2P technology, which was not widely used at the time, and transferred data using a bucket brigade method.
When Mr. Kaneko published “Winny” on the electronic bulletin board site “2channel,” the number of users increased in an instant, and it is said that at its peak, more than 2 million people were using it. Due to its high anonymity, copyrighted data such as movies, games, and music are distributed without permission, and it has been pointed out as a hotbed of copyright infringement. In addition, viruses that exploit its characteristics are also prevalent. When infected, unintended data leaks, such as internal documents of the police and the Self-Defense Forces, customer information of companies, and files owned by individuals. Copies of the leaked files remained on many computers, making them unrecoverable. Chief Cabinet Secretary Abe held a press conference saying, “The surest way to prevent information leaks is to not use Winny on your computer.” became a social problem. Starring:
