Submission + - Japan moves toward blocking online child porn (skunkpost.com) 2

crimeandpunishment writes: In the wake of increased international demands that it do something about its legal lenience toward child pornography, Japan is beginning to take action, albeit slowly. Thursday a government task force recommended that kiddie porn sites be blocked as soon as they're discovered, instead of waiting for an investigation or arrests. Making or distributing child porn is illegal in Japan, but possession is not...and critics have called that a legal loophole making Japan an international hub for child porn.
