General: censored

Article 175 in the Criminal Code of Japan, forbids the distribution of indecent materials. To beat this pornography in Japan is partially censored with the often used mosaic filter.

In the recent years, law enforcement has begun to prosecute webmasters who allow uncensored adult images on their websites, often with fines between 20,000 - 500,000 yen, despite that this "law" is apparently very vague and often unenforced.
