Publisher Description

I. INTRODUCTION In the late 1980s and early 1990s when I studied at the University of Washington under Professor Haley's guidance, Japan's economy and international competitiveness were at their peak. With respect to my study of Japan's patent system, Professor Haley suggested that Japan adopted a patent policy similar to that of developing countries although it had already become a developed country. He felt that Japan's economy had developed so quickly that the minds of political leaders were unable to catch up with the country's swift development. The U.S. government viewed Japanese industry as engaging in unfair business practice by infringing on intellectual property ("IP") rights, which led to Japan's strong competitiveness vis-a-vis U.S. industry. Japan's patent system was extensively criticized by U.S. companies for the narrow scope of patent rights granted by the Japan Patent Office ("JPO") and the restrictive interpretation of those rights by the Japanese patent courts.
