Japanese PSN Restart Not Approved

Does it bother anyone else that Sony restarted the PSN in the U.S. but it has been blocked in Japan for not showing more information on its new security measures? You'd think scrutiny here would be 10x great now, not easier. confused

"We met with Sony on May 6 and 13, and basically want two things from them," said Kazushige Nobutani, director of the Media and Content Industry department at the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry. "The first is preventive measures. As of May 13, Sony was incomplete in exercising measures that they said they will do on the May 1 press conference." The second point regards how Sony plans to regain consumer confidence.
