・Report of the 2020 Evaluation Commission http://www.olympic.org/Documents/Host_city_elections/2020_Evaluation_Commission_report.pdf
In Japan, the Copyright Law, the Trademark Law and the Unfair Competition Prevention Act provide strong protection against the unauthorized use of protected marks. Japan also has a culture of respect for intellectual property rights which reduces threats from the domestic marketplace.
Tokyo 2020 has advised that, under the current legal framework, an injunction against ambush marketing could be obtained within approximately two weeks. The Bid Committee has committed to further examine legislation to determine whether it would be necessary to implement special measures to enable effective, immediate action in response to ambush marketing.
Street vending in Japan is strictly controlled. A network of over 1,200 “Kobans” (neighbourhood police offices) exists in Tokyo to provide further protection against unauthorized street vending.」
