It looks like he may be straight out just bootlegging CDs and selling them on Amazon too.

i genuinely never expected this rabbit hole to go as deep as it does lol

Putting this up here for better overview:
So far we have
on Google Play Music
his complete list on Soundcloud
Amazon Japan (just 1 single)
Multiple Singles on other Amazons (US/UK/France/Germany/Italy/Spain)
Onna ni Sachi are
Bootleg CDs produced by him:
Are you Happy?
Ai no Tane
He also claims rights to yt videos (thus earning money through not legal uploads that usually don't earn the uploaders money):
yeah, basically anything involving songs from the last 2 singles
Tunecore also re-uploads his uploads from other providers to youtube:
Tunecore links his uploads to the official Morning Musume youtube channel
Ai no Tane
Tunecore also claims copyright and monetizes videos officially uploaded by UF to the H!P/UF artist channels on youtube
Y Jiro no Tochuu
Are you Happy?
Jiyuu na Kuni Dakara
his own youtube:
Not him but also fraudulent upload:
from online research of a fb user
He's even gone as far and put up a "copyright" declaration (to find on his youtube channel): https://copyright.co...-copyright.html
BTW, that page is pretty much a fraud.
I don't assume it'll help, but I'll also report the content on Youtube etc.
his social media handles:

That being said, even from a non-emotional side this guy is a total fraud. The spotify version of Are You Happy is an audio cut from the youtube MV, Fiesta Fiesta is even a live version. Apparently he sells physical CDs of non physical releases (the new Ai no Tane). Judging from the low quality on his facebook page he seems like the type that prints out his low quality files and sells them as original photographs lol.
I just hope Up Front won't cut down on their overseas activities because of this.
Forever a salty Kanon fan.

Sadly, I had already made a purchase from him on Google Play a few months back, which I really regret now... I don't know what this guy was thinking when he went through with this, but hopefully there'll be a proper reaction from UFP and he'll get the punishment he deserves.

He deleted his twitter account today
edit: oops already posted

Reselling CDs is perfectly fine as long as they're legit ones... But selling bootlegged ones is just...
At least that basically confirms 100% that there is no hidden contract / agreement in there as he claimed yesterday.

Don't know if already posted:
He is doing the same with Berryz Koubou Germany
In one of his posts on insta he talked about opening a whole berryz website and put some pink cres. on there, yet I can not find a specific site.
And he is on dailymotion:
And something about his copyright:

OML saw bits of this on the MM thread but now that it's all put together
This is so shady and illegal.
I've seen his stuff on like youtube and etc. but I didn't think much of it. Just thought he was a fan that uploads stuff like some other people. Didn't know that he was trying to impersonate MM's company.
Posted 20 December 2018 - 01:57 PM
If my phone displays the page correctly, he's also deleted the comment/contact section on the homepage

This track was originally part of the official tracklist for Morning Musume’s 66th Single on iTunes but for unknown reasons was removed just before the single was officially released. The official music video for “Y Jiro no Tochu” is one of the official music videos that Morning Musume Germany is monetising by linking it to his illegal upload of this song on Spotify. I think by making the track available again on iTunes UpFront are possibly working towards countering all the damage that Morning Musume Germany has caused.

That means he's hitting the domestic market too, and this is one of streaming services that Oricon are going to count for the singles/album charts. So it will effect MM's chart positions, as well as pocket (even if it just means less fries for the girls ).
