Abstract:     
This article applies general principles of Japanese copyright law, as well as recent statutory amendments relating to computer programs, to the protection of operating system software. Against this framework, the views of leading Japanese commentators are critically analyzed to conclude that, if the suggested interpretations are adopted by Japanese courts, the Japanese Copyright Law could serve as a model for other countries that protect computer programs under copyright law.
