    Brad Bartz v JPRS/JPNIC

    Epic. Tragic.

    Brad Bartz led the Internet venture business scene from 1990 in Tokyo. In 1995 he raised 4 million dollars from a New York Hedge Fund to expand its Joint Venture With Nippon Telephone and Telegraph (NTT). In August 1996 Bartz registerd 105 .co.jp domain names exploiting the loophole of one company can only have one domain name by making 105 Delaware Corporations.

    Japan.co.jp, JPN.co.jp, sushi.co.jp and many more. Then Brad Bartz and his company were blacklisted by the Japanese governement. A blacklist that is still in place and having continued negative impact. Read more at www.JPRS.com

    Startup in the Land of the Rising Sun
    by Bradley L. Bartz

    Buy on Amazon.com

    I know the exact moment I lost my Japanese companies. A singular point in time. Twice.

    You decide. Is being blacklisted by the Japanese government for owning Japan.co.jp bad? Or is JP Power just too unbelievable?

    Did you know that I competed with JP Power in the 1990s? Did they hold a grudge that led to this failed solar transaction in 2013?

    Japan.co.jp: Hardhat Required
    by Bradley L. Bartz

    Buy on Amazon .com

    The fact that you are reading this at Japan.co.jp is the base truth for this story. I may own Japan.co.jp and get to post anything I want on the 100+ .co.jp domain names. That is true. But, I can not sell these domains. Google and other network advertisers pulled all ads with the blacklist years ago.

    Again, you decide. Which is worse. A blacklist or JP Power leaving 1.5 million dollars of solar panels at the Port of Yokohama. Left them for ABC SOlar to somehow cleanup. The court gives no penalty to JP Power for abaondoning the solar panels. Instead, ABC Solar is penalized for not cleaning up correctly. Sheeeeeeesh!

    The Venture Business Manual: Avoid Being Road Kill

    This is a great book and I highly recommend for any businessperson.

    The Venture Business Manual also has Non-Disclosure agreements and other key documents for reference and use

    Pre order copies. Will be on Amazon.com shortly.

    Email Brad@Bartz.com

    Don't Do It.

    Legal Restrictions on Foreigners
    with questionable justice.

    (oh Brad! No, really, check it out. I registered this domain, Japan.co.jp, and two weeks later foreigners were outlawed from buying a Japanese domain name. So, yes, Japan has legal racism that gives competitive advantage to locals.)

    Only one condidtion should you do business in Japan. That is when you own 100% of the distribution channel in Japan. Any deviation from this is short-sited as history is littered with ripped off JV partners in Japan.

    Help Brad Bartz or... Banish Brad Bartz

    Get struck by lightening twice, just do business in Japan.

    Before you invest a yen, learn these stories and talk to Brad.

    Learn who to avoid in Japan, some real scumbags. Learn that other markets offer a better chance of long-term success.

    Skip Japan. Just visit to get drunk. Then its ok.

    1. Japan.co.jp and the Japanese blacklist from 1996 to present

    2. JP Power (Solar Client) buys 1.5 million dollars worth of solar panels. ABC Solar delivers as contracted CIF to port. JP Power abaondoned at port and all hell breaks loose.

    Email Brad@Bartz.com and tell him how you feel about this case.

    Did Brad receive fair justice?

    How should Brad fix?

    Your opinion matters.

    Should Brad be granted an appeal hearing?
