"Legal Issues on Patent Law relating to Misidentification of Plants and Resolution by using of Database System "
Speaker: Takato Natsui
[Abstracts] In general, a plant can be identified by the name of the plant. However, there may be some cases that a same plant was misidentified as some different species and named by different names. In such cases, duplication of patents can be taken place. On the other hand, there may be some cases that some different species were thought to be a same species formerly, but currently the plants should be identified as different species based on DNA analysis. In such cases, legal validity of a patent which was issued for a single named plant may be in doubt. To avoid such misidentification and conflicts of patents as mentioned above, an effective way is construction and using of a database system in which one can retrieve the identification of specific plant by plant DNA data as a key.

"International Privacy & Security Conference 2008 "
in Bellesalle Kudan (Kudan-kita, Chiyodaku, Tokyo, Japan)
[Abstracts] In general, models of management system for information security, personal data protection and internal control have been based on a premise that every organization can exist to make a plan, to perform the plan, to check the results and to assess of the management system. When a business entity is facing bankruptcy or was bankrupted, another stronger business entity may be able to merge such a bankrupted business entity, to success information assets and personal data from the bankrupted business entity, and to protect them normally and lawfully. However, world economic condition was changed completely, has been and will be failing. The change has brought a flood of bankruptcy of numerous business entities and many local governments or other public organizations. Due to such a terrible change, no business entity can rescue or merge any other bankrupted business entity. As the result, the cycle of management system of the information asses and personal data collected by such bankrupted organizations shall stop suddenly, and will be left alone without any adequate protection. Also in such an economic environment, every personal data protection law and information security law may have no substantial ability and normal function to protect any personal data and information assets. Because, current relevant laws have been composed and enacted without any premises of such dangerous fundamental changes of world economic condition. We have to rebuild a new protection scheme of personal data and information assets as soon as possible.
