01) Sony Japan President Says PS4 Censorship Policy Is To Match Global Standards And Protect Kids

“Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan president, Atsushi Morita, finally addressed the censorship regulations that Sony has employed for PS4 games, speaking at the Japan Studio “Fun” Meeting that took place in Tokyo, Japan on December 1st, 2018. The event was themed around a celebration of SIE Japan Studio’s projects, but was also open to some fan questions. The news was picked up by Japanese gaming blogs like Ebitsu.net and Mutyun.com, which briefly covered some of the topics Morita addressed while at the meet-and-greet.

Morita explained that there was no “profound meaning” behind the decision other to match global regulation, saying…

“Regarding the regulation of the depiction of content, it’s simply a matter of matching global standards.

“As for the freedom of expression… we have to think about what might be unpleasant for children and shield them from those things while also thinking and assessing ways to find a balance [for that expression].”

As stated previously…there are not going to be anymore large holiday albums. What comes from here on out, will be more “supplemental” to what has already been released.

The plan is to put out another one of these next year…and the year after…etc…

If I’m feeling up to it, I may release something else this year…But, I’ve still got the video exhibition for this album to put together…So, that comes first.

I could not let a year pass, without some type of holiday album.

I hope this short collection is uplifting…

…Happy Yule Season!

Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th…


Date: December 03, 2018

01) Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th

“Tumblr will permanently ban adult content from its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tells The Verge. The new policy’s announcement comes just days after Tumblr was removed from Apple’s iOS App Store over a child pornography incident, but it extends far beyond that matter alone. “Adult content will no longer be allowed here,” the company flatly stated in a blog post published on Monday.

Banned content includes photos, videos, and GIFs of human genitalia, female-presenting nipples, and any media involving sex acts, including illustrations. The exceptions include nude classical statues and political protests that feature nudity. The new guidelines exclude text, so erotica remains permitted. Illustrations and art that feature nudity are still okay — so long as sex acts aren’t depicted — and so are breastfeeding and after-birth photos.

After December 17th, any explicit posts will be flagged and deleted by algorithms. For now, Tumblr is emailing users who have posted adult content flagged by algorithms and notifying them that their content will soon be hidden from view. Posts with porn content will be set to private, which will prevent them from being reblogged or shared elsewhere in the Tumblr community.”
