    Defamation on the Internet are becoming more and more serious problems as the use of the Internet increases. While the spread of the Internet makes it possible for everyone to publish their message to the world, it has also caused a lot of damage by undesirable information.
    The issue of intermediary liability has been discussed since the 1990s. The role of the intermediaries such as ISPs is particularly important because they could remove or block access to problematic information. On the other hand, imposing liability on the intermediary could bring about chilling effects on free speech and lead to excessive behavior that might threaten the free speech and privacy on the Internet. The regime of intermediary liability varies from country to country because it is really controversial issue. This paper focuses on the intermediary liability and compares legal systems in the U.S., the EU, and Japan in order to provide suggestions for better solution.

    This paper focuses on privacy issues about personal data held by third parties in search for criminal investigations. Development of information technologies enable the collection and storage of enormous volumes of information. Data held by third parties would be a curse to serious privacy concern because it could often be provided to investigating authorities while data subjects do not recognize it. The aim of this paper is to compare the relevant laws and regulations about privacy and investigation search on personal data held by third parties in the US, the EU and Japan, and reach a suggestion for appropriate solution.

    Discussing cross-border data investigation needs to consider both the sovereignty of the State in which the data are stored and human rights of the investigation subject. These issues are closely related to each other and, thus, likely to be confused. Regarding data collection for investigatory purposes, if there is no infringement of the investigation subject’s human rights, concerns are rarely raised regarding sovereignty infringement. However, the existence of two types of investigation subjects, data subjects and data controllers, complicates the issue. This paper provides an approach to improve cross-border data investigations, with due consideration of human rights and international law, by analyzing current international discussions in this field.

    This paper focuses on obligation of data controller associated with purpose of personal data processing. The development of IoT and big data causes privacy concern in various aspects. One of the most serious issues is that data could be collected, used or disclosed while the data subjects do not recognize it. It could be difficult to get efficient consent for one or more specific purpose from the data subject under these new technologies. The aim of this paper is to compare the relevant legal schemes in the EU, the U.S. and Japan, and reach an appropriate solution.

    Language:English   Publishing type:Research paper (international conference proceedings)   Publisher:SPRINGER INTERNATIONAL PUBLISHING AG  

    This paper focuses on the liability and duties of data controllers regarding data leaks and compares the relevant legal schemes of Japan, the U. S., and the U.K. There are three primary approaches to reducing or redressing damages caused by data leaks: (1) providing remedies for data leaks; (2) data security obligations; and (3) notification obligations in the event of a data breach. The aim of this article is to compare the measures on data breaches from the above viewpoints and highlight the relevant issues in order to reach an appropriate solution.
    To address the issues related to data breaches, legal rules among countries should be common to all due to the worldwide circulation of personal data. Nonetheless, different features are recognizable through the analysis in each chapter.
    Companies in Japan have thus far eagerly abided by data security obligations even if they are ineffective for data protection. Conducting PIAs is another option to prevent security incidents. If data breach notification rules are introduced, the subject matters to be publicized must be identified and followed by enforcement actions. Also, such rules should contribute to the avoidance of secondary harm.
    In the U. S., while compensations for data leakage and security breach notification rules have apparently been effectively managed, it is needed to reduce serious harm arising from massive data breach. Obliging companies to maintain data traceability might serve this.
    In the U. K., data breach notification rules imposed as part of the General Data Protection Regulation need to connect with other effective enforcements and contributions to avoiding secondary harm, so as not to become meaningless.
    We must harmonize the above differences and make ongoing efforts to improve the effectiveness of rules.

    Needless to say Alan Westin's "Privacy and Freedom" is an important book on privacy that is known for proposing a modern privacy right. The book begins in the chapter "The Origin of Modern Privacy Rights." After reviewing "Privacy in the animal World" and "Privacy in the Primitive World", the reasons why modern privacy has arisen is discussed. In this paper, I would like to consider the relationship between the discussions made here and the discussions in evolutionary psychology that developed after the publication of the book.

    On the Internet, information is transmitted instantaneously across borders. Enormous volumes of information are collected and stored throughout the world. Information on the Internet can also be subject to criminal investigations. The increasing problem for criminal justice authorities is that the information they seek to access is often stored in other States and is, therefore, outside their jurisdiction. Exercising a state power over data stored inside another State’s territory could be a violation of sovereignty.
