Abstract: Focusing on the perspective of“protection of the young people”,this article argues the constitutionality of legal obligations on provision of a“service to filter content harmful to young people”and a“measure to prevent viewing by young people”based on the Act on Development of an Environment that Provides Safe and Secure Internet Use for Young People(act).While these legal obligations may partially restrict human rights of information senders and young people as information receivers, they should be justified under Japan's Constitutional Law (constitution).This argument is predicated on my view that the public power is obliged to take necessary measures to fulfill an“obligation to support sound developments of young people”under Article 13,25, and 26 of the constitution in light of immaturity of the juveniles. In particular,“ rights to receive education of young people”stipulated in Article 26 and“freedom of education by their parents”will work as evidence of this obligation as far as the aforementioned measures become a part of educational conditions to be established under the constitution. Presumably, constitutional“obligation to support sound developments of young people”reaches the proper usage of the Internet because it is indispensable to support the“sound developments”in the advanced information network society in Japan. Therefore, as far as the perspective of the“protection of young people”is concerned, it would be fair to assume that the aforementioned legal obligations based on the act are fundamentally constitutional as an implementation of the constitutional obligation.
