'Let them dance', Editorial comment in The Japan Times on Sunday, August 5th, 2012

This opinion piece describes how the enforcement of the Business Entertainment Control Law squeezes out smaller clubs and businesses while denying youngsters meaningful spaces in which to socialize and enjoy themselves. While safety regulations are obviously important, the editorial points out that fights, drugs and prostitution are not specifically linked to the DJ and music scene, and so the outlawing of dance as a threat to public morals is meaningless.
