An excerpt from " Law on Cybercrime and Obstructing Court Ordered Enforcement Comes into Effect"

The Diet enacted the “Law for Partial Revision of the Penal Code, Etc. to Respond to Advancement of Information Processing, Etc.” during its 177th session. The law was promulgated on June 24, 2011 and a portion of it came into effect on July 14, 2011. The date on which the remainder of the law will come into effect has not been determined.

The law has been referred to as the “Cyber Penal Code,” but this is misleading because the law concerns not only new classes of cybercrime, but also punishments for obstructing enforcement of court orders for compulsory enforcement unrelated to cybercrime. This article discusses the cybercrime related aspects of the law and the compulsory enforcement aspects of the law in turn below.
