9.Summary of Research Results

The theory of "law model of the near future" aims at solving problems which do not exist within the framework of modern law, or those important issues which cannot be appropriately handled within this same framework. This legal framework can be a proposal of legislation, new policies, or a new contract system. The research on the " Legal Models of Information Market in the Near Future" is based on Copymart, a theory for improvement of legal infrastructure of the information society, which has evolved with the Internet and digital technology. The objective of this research is to construct an intellectual property transaction market model concerning the rights management and dissemination of intellectual property, typified by copyright. It also pursues the 'Copymartization' of the product of individual studies. To be more concrete, we carried out basic research as well as applied research of Copymart. As a result, we constructed the IIAS model called the "Academic Information System," which would integrate the multiple processes of these researches.
This IIAS model is applicable to future academic information systems at universities and research institutions. The research result report of this project was itself compiled by the application of this IIAS model.
