Yu Ichifuji is a student of the Graduate School of Information Sciences of Tohoku University, and is currently studying in a research field concerning user ethics education in the Internet toward the Ph.D. degree. His research interests are in ethical issues of internet communication and education systems for Internet users.

In recent years, young users can access the Internet and communicate with others through the Internet communication tools such as BBS. BBS has problems that users sometimes post bad comment which displeases others due to lack of experiences. To maintain normal communication, it is necessary to reduce such bad comments. Actually, Japanese government and local governments focus on specific site in which they talk about their school event, teacher and other student, and order to remove such bad comments. However, we think that the cause of problems is that users don't understand the influence of own posting comment. If user has a chance to understand the influence, they will not post such bad comments. The aim of our work is to advise such users when they post bad comment. In this talk, we introduce Japanese government countermeasures and our advisory method.

In recent years, young users can easily access the Internet and communicate with others in Japan. And they came to be able to access the harmful contents in the youth. Therefore, because the young users are made not to be able to access harmful contents, the introduction of the filtering technology is advanced in Japan.Especially, in Japan, the cell phone is a major target,because young users often access the Internet with the cell phone.    There are chiefly two of the following in the method of filtering of Japan.

 - Filtering by whitelist by mobile career and third-party institution
 - Filtering by blacklist of filtering service provider

   We introduce a technical mechanism of these filtering this time. And, we easily introduce the policy of Japan concerning this matter.
