In all major industrialised countries, copyright law has fundamentally changed in the last 15 years due to the digital age, the TRIPS Agreement and the WIPO Copyright Treaties. Japan is no exception, and both legislation and case law have been most active within this period of time.
Copyright Law in Japan contains up-to date information on such difficult issues as the new distribution right for copyrighted works, frictions between private and public interest, provisions on anti-circumvention devices, contributory infringement in a digital and nondigital environment, calculation of damages in copyright infringement cases, the fundamentals of moral rights protection and the work quality of video games.
The book is written by a number of leading Japanese and Max Planck academics, and Japanese practitioners, and thus combines practical knowledge with academic standards.
