Limits of Liability Law for Providers

  • The Limits of Liability for Providers is the Law Concerning the Limits of Liability for Damages of Specified Telecommunications Service Providers and the Right to Request Disclosure of Identification Information of the Senders enacted on May 27, 2002. In regard to the unlawful distribution of information, prior to the enactment of this law, in cases where GMO Internet removed such information in response to a right holder claim, the company risked being held liable by the distributor of the information. In cases where GMO Internet denied the right holder's claim the company risked facing a compensation claim from the right holder. In either circumstance the company was unable to settle the majority of claims.
    However the enactment of Limits of Liability for Providers law has to some extent clarified the extent of a provider's liability for damages so when the company receives a request to prevent the unlawful transmission of information or to disclose the identity of the sender, it follows specific procedures proscribed by the Limits of Liability for Providers law and the guidelines established by the Limits of Liability for Providers investigative committee.
    Anyone with a claim regarding defamation or infringement of copyrights, trademark rights or privacy seeking to prevent the distribution of certain information or disclosure of the sender's identity should contact us after having read all guidelines established by the Limits of Liability for Providers law investigative committee. GMO Internet will not provide advice on how to proceed. Please consult a lawyer or other specialist if you have any questions. Please confirm the following before making an inquiry.
    1.Is the site containing infringing information managed by another company? If the concerned site is managed by a group company GMO Internet will not act as an intermediary‚ please contact the relevant company directly.
    2.Have you contacted directly the administrator of the concerned site before contacting GMO Internet? Please contact the site administrator first if you desire a fast resolution.
