Evidence suggests that Japan's basic research levels seem to lag behind that of the USA. This paper seeks to investigate (1) the reasons for this difference in the context of societal impact on the creation of intellectual products, (2) the influence of the different legal systems as they relate to the treatment of intellectual products, and (3) the aspect of market size as an essential factor in the creation of intellectual products protected by copyright. This last category includes intellectual products such as visual products, publications, music, and computer software. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
