Japan to start jailing people for online insults

Posting “online insults” will be punishable by up to a year in prison time in Japan starting Thursday, when a new law passed earlier this summer will go into effect. People convicted of online insults can also be fined up to 300,000 yen (just over $2,200). via Technology and News Today https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/6/23196593/japan-jail-online-insult-cyberbullying
