By problem do you mean the increased traffic or retarded users?
Now I don't/can't read Japanese so I cannot say for *sure* but I do not think that 2ch faces the same problem. Or at least not nearly as much so. It comes back to the "How can I become a part of this? How can I add to this?" thing in place of "How can I make this about me? What can I take from this?".
2ch is *huge.* And because of that Japanese herd mindset new users see what's already there try to conform to it and become apart of the greater whole. Which is sadly, the inverse of what happens in most of the western Internet.

However, I know they did have a similar problem to us in years past with corporations attempting to monetize their AA characters and memes with t-shirts, plusies, stickers, toys, and lots of other stuff. I also know that 2ch started a campaign against it. I think they called it the "Save Our Monar" campaign. What I don't know is what level of success they had. But if it was anything like their past escapades then I'll guess it was favorable.
