Our “livedoor Blog” service is a blogging service which allows anyone to create and run their own blog.

In the event that materials included on a blog created by a blog administrator (the person who creates a blog is called the blog administrator) infringe on copyright, privacy rights, or any other rights of the claimant (you), and you wish for us to block transmission of such materials, we will respond to such claim in accordance with the Act on the Limitation of Liability for Damages of Specified Telecommunications Service Providers and the Right to Demand Disclosure of Identification Information of the Senders (hereinafter, the “Provider Liability Limitation Act”), the relevant Japanese law.


In order to begin to address this in accordance with the Provider Liability Limitation Act(Fn. 1), the following must be provided in the prescribed format: (i) information necessary to the claim; (ii) identity verification documents; and, if making a claim through a proxy, (iii) power of attorney.


Note: If the claimant (you) is making a claim at the request, and on behalf, of the rightsholder or the person whose privacy, etc. has been infringed, then you are deemed to be a proxy.
If this is a claim from an unrelated third party not based upon a request from the rightsholder or person whose privacy, etc. has been infringed, we will be unable to address the claim as it falls outside the scope of the Provider Liability Limitation Act.
