Copyright exhaustion in the digital age:  A cross-country study of consumers' views
Prof. Dr. Branislav Hazucha (Hokkaido University)Copyright exhaustion in the digital age:  A cross-country study of consumers' views
Over the last few years the courts in several major jurisdictions have dealt with questions of whether and to what extent the doctrine of copyright exhaustion should also apply in the digital environment. While the US Second Circuit in Capitol Records, LLC v. ReDigi opposed its extension to the digital environment, the CJEU allowed such extension to computer programs in its ruling in UsedSoft v. Oracle. However, even in Europe AG Szpunar has recently advised the CJEU not to broaden digital exhaustion to other types of copyrighted works in Tom Kabinet. In this controversial discussion several arguments in favour of, and against, digital exhaustion have been presented by courts as well as scholars. This Presentation will thus examine the recent case law and scholarly literature dealing with digital exhaustion. In addition, based upon internet surveys conducted in 4 major economies (i.e. Germany, Japan, the US and China), it will scrutinize to what extent the consumers find this issue important to them.

The ‘flexible’ Japanese copyright exception:  A model for Europe?
Prof. Dr. Branislav Hazucha (Hokkaido University)
After the long and heated discussions over the introduction of a general clause on copyright exceptions and limitations in Japan since 2007, the "flexible" provisions on copyright exception (Arts. 30-4, 47-4 and 47-5) were finally introduced into the Japanese Copyright Act in 2018 and came into effect in 2019, which are unique and different from fair use or fair dealing. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the recent development in Japan focusing on the "flexible" copyright exception for an exploitation not for "enjoying" (Art. 30-4) and try to consider the possible implication for the (future) European civil law countries.

Private ordering and digital copyright: What role for mediation?
Prof. Dr. Asako Wechs Hatanaka (Ritsumeikan University)
The Google Books Settlement has left us controversy as to the extent of private ordering. As the progress of technology leaves legislation behind, national judiciary is challenged by the extraterritorial impact of digital copyright. Would mediation be a solution for the international regime of copyright? What are the functions performed by mediation, and where are the limitations? In order to answer the questions, a number of legal systems, institutions and dispute resolution providers will be analysed from the viewpoint of civil procedure law, contract law and intellectual property law, based on a comparison between Japan, the European Union, France and the UK.
