CBLDF: The Fight To Defend Manga
In 2010, American citizen Ryan Matheson was illegally detained and falsely charged with importation of child pornography for humor and fantasy manga on his laptop computer. Earlier this year, all charges against Ryan were dropped, thanks to his willingness to stand up for his rights, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s work to aid his defense. Meet the man who stood up to Canada Customs to prove manga is not a crime! Panel 3, BCC Ballroom I-II
