CyberAgent Inc. (株式会社サイバーエージェント, Kabushiki-gaisha Saibāējento) is a Japanese digital advertising company, which was founded in 1998 by Susumu Fujita and headquartered in Shibuya, Tokyo.[1][2][3] It is owned by Susumu Fujita with 20.50% interest; Fujita is representative director, while Yusuke Hidaka is executive vice president.[4][5]

CyberAgent is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the Nikkei 225 since 2000.[6]

In 2016, it established a live streaming service called ''FRESH LIVE'' [ja].[7] On April 1, 2016 it was transferred to CyberAgent subsidiary AbemaTV and its name was changed to AbemaTV FRESH!,[8] and on June 26, 2018 its name was changed to FRESH LIVE.[9] Termination of the service began on February 12, 2019, when the creation of new channels, in addition to archiving and other functions, were disabled for most channels. Complete closure of the service on November 30, 2020, was announced on October 9, 2020. Since 2019, CyberAgent integrated the service with OPENREC.tv, another live streaming service operated by CyberAgent subsidiary CyberZ, and some channels migrated to that service.[10][11][12]

Controversies and criticism[edit]

In April 2015 a former employee of CyberAgent accused the company of unauthorized stealing of articles and images, inappropriate quoting, and undercover marketing were often pointed out with BuzzFeed Japan also accusing the company for the same thing but allegations were later denied.[13][14][15]

In the fall of 2016, DeNA's healthcare information website "WELQ" had a problem due to inappropriate content and inappropriate citations, and from December 1 to 2, 2016, thousands of articles related to medical and health related to “Spotlight” and a few percent of approximately 35,000 articles related to by.S were deleted. CyberAgent explained that the privately held articles were written by registered users and with company claiming could not be fully verified with addiction expanded the scope of private disclosure, and deleted all articles posted by registered users on both websites. A total of less than 100,000 articles were deleted.[16][17][18]
