If you’re into Japanese adult content, you know that in Japan, there’s a law that prohibits the explicit display of such content, requiring censorship, and the most commonly used form is mosaic censorship.
You can find mosaics in any Japanese adult content, whether it’s in magazines, manga, films, or anime. While some people are advocating for the removal of mosaics, there hasn’t been any concrete action yet.
Japan is Losing Tax Money Due to Mosaics in AV!
Takafumi Horiemon, the owner of the Japanese portal Livedoor, one of the largest sites in Japan, recently discussed the use of mosaics in Japanese adult videos (AV) in a video.
According to him, the use of mosaics in Japanese adult content causes the country to “lose tax money” and prompts the question, “Why do we use mosaics?”
Horie believes that the Japanese can simply visit foreign websites to consume uncensored AV content while Japan continues to censor everything. For Horie:
“The taxes (from distribution companies) that should be paid to Japan (by Japanese users) are being withdrawn”. National wealth is being drained due to the police’s interpretation.
“National wealth is bleeding! Tax money that should be coming to us is being drained because of the stupidity of the police. I’m serious. I mean, we’re all watching videos with mosaics removed.”
