I found this article rather amusing because I was just recently discussing with a friend the morals of stealing a Wi Fi signal. He had mentioned that he didn't see it as a crime because it hasn't been defined as a crime and there was really no repercussions of him stealing a Wi Fi signal. Times are changing friends and stealing Wi Fi (which I believe is a popular hobby for the tech geek crowd) may soon be just as punishable as stealing a cable signal.

"Work like you don't need the money. Love like you have never been hurt. Dance like nobody is watching."
You Are The Wayward Heart
You are best described as 'Emotional Support'. Anytime an emotional issue comes up or something stresses people out, you are there to help them feel better about it. Whether you are the prankster of the bunch, the funny one, the wild one, or just the shoulder to cry on - your traits favor what it takes to keep people going. You like large groups of people and have many friends. When something hits home for you, however, you have a hard time with it. You also have difficulty paying attention or focusing on one thing. Above all, though, if people are happy, you are happy.

GTA: San Andreas has been banned from being sold or rented to a minor in a perfecture (state) in Japan. I wonder, is this really going to do what they want it to do? Ok, I will agree that the game is very...questionable. There are some things in it that I just wouldn't want a kid under the age of, say, sixteen seeing or engaging in. But banning it from sell to minors is only going to make it a beacon to the very people they are trying to keep it from. It will get that "forbidden fruit" stigma and I can see a blooming black market springing up in school yards and playgrounds everywhere.
Perhaps I exxagerate.
This is Japan however, and Japan has a pretty firm hold on its children. Youthful violence is nothing as it is over here and the levels of respect are far greater than what's boasted in the great old US of A. But rebelliousness is a universal trait in teenagers and the Japanese youngersters are no stranger to it. I'm quite sure that this ban on the game is only going to make it more appealing. Think of it, if they were to ban the sale and rental of a game here in the US, what would happen? Why that game becomes more covetted, more wanted. Teens discover different means of obtaining it. They get older siblings to buy it or the clueless parent who can't read the back of the box. They make a way. As will those Japanese children that really will want this.
The one thing going for those moral Japanese is that this type of game doesn't appear all that popular in Japan. The article referenced reports that only 350,000 copies have been sold there since September of 2003. So I'm basing this assumption on that and my own somewhat limited knowledge of video game sells in Japan. What I do know is that most of the Japanese games we see exported to the US are mostly RPG's so I'm assuming RPG's are the all the rage there.
So what do I think would have been an effective method of stopping minors from getting there more than eager and grubby hands on the forbidden fruit. Well controlled containment I don't think will work. I think you are going to have to go for full containment. Ban sales and rentals in the state period. That's a harsh but poignant note. If you aren't going to sell or rent it to minors they are going to get it from unscrupulous (or stupid) adults. Somehow there will be some that slip through the legislative cracks. Better to close the door firmly than leave it open just a tad. Of course, they are still going to be able to get around that by just buying it from a different prefecture but at least you lessen the flow and sources of the contraband.
That's just my two cents.
