ID of the Defamatory Statement
Under Japanese law, the identification of individuals responsible for illegal postings, such as those constituting defamation, can be pursued through the provisions of the Provider Liability Limitation Act. This legal procedure is conducted in a Japanese court.
In cases involving highly malicious postings that cannot be overlooked, such as false allegations connecting a business owner to antisocial forces, it is crucial to identify the perpetrators and seek appropriate legal sanctions. Additionally, when illegal postings occur persistently, efforts should be made to identify and prevent recurrence.
