Suspected Japanese arsonist believed his novel was stolen

Suspected Japanese arsonist believed his novel was stolen

A man suspected of torching an animation studio in Japan, killing 33 people, planned the attack because he believed his novel had been plagiarized. The suspect is under an anesthesia after burning himself and police were unable to question him. The incident marks the worst mass killing since a suspected arson attack in Tokyo killed 44 in 2001.

Now I'm curious how similar the two stories are. Not that any amount of plagiarism warrants killing 33 people. Also what does copyright law look like over there? Could he not sue for theft of intellectual property? Also interesting is that this is the second largest death toll since someone else did the exact same crime, killing 44.
