In all major industrialised countries, copyright law has fundmentally 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 issue as the new distribution right for copyright works, frictions between private and public interest, provisions on anti-circumvention devices, contributory infringement in a digital and non-digital environment, calculation of damages in copyright infringement cases, the fundamental 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.

The book contains the following chapters:

  • Copyright Hirstory;
  • General Introduction;
  • Protected Works;
  • Copyright Ownership;
  • Moral Rights;
  • Economic Rights and Limitations;
  • Copyright Contract Law;
  • Neighbouring Rights;
  • The Enforcement of Copyrights.

    The book is a must for all copyright owners concerned about their rights in Japan, and for private practitioners counselling their clients on potential strategies of marketing copyright material and enforcing copyrights in the Japanese market.
