All national dailies reported on a meeting held yesterday between several GOJ agencies, including the Fair Trade Commission, on proposed regulations on Google, Apple, Facebook, and Amazon and other IT giants, noting that they are mulling new legislation to increase transparency in these companies’ business operations in Japan. Other emerging ideas to ensure transparency, fairness, and competition reportedly include the establishment of “data portability,” which allows individuals to move their personal data easily from one IT firm to another. These proposed regulations are reportedly intended to protect consumers and small- and medium-sized companies from the powerful IT firms.
