Japan announced up to $2000 and 1 year jail terms for online insults

They already have the law, but it calls for a fine of $75 and no more than 30 days in jail.

An actress killed herself two years ago, and in last days she was sharing some of the insults she had received online. This law change is considered to be related.

Lawmakers added a provision that they would reexamine the law in 3 years, and if the impact was positive it would remain.
