National Police Agency of Japan is considering to submit a law to require precertification to run "Online dating sites". The reason behind this is that it's currently hard to figure out the organization behind the sites when the criminal activities occur (like prostitution of the minors), especially when the servers are placed in foreign countries.
This approach is ALL WRONG.
One, Even if you require precertification to run this in Japan, it'll still be unnecessary if you have servers outside Japan and this law wouldn't give any benefit. Two, the organization to give certificates will be a private sector, and who can trust these organizations? Three, the definition of "online dating sites" is so vague that any sites that has a social networking aspect or web-messaging functionality would need to do this.
By doing this, all internet community sites would require bullshit process to keep the site up, or just simply move their servers outside Japan, which is a loss to the nation itself.
Stop making an effort to control internet. It's useless.
