The government believes the Originator Profile (OP) is effective in tracing the origins of online information, as outlined in a draft report at a government panel meeting.

The government on Monday presented a draft interim report at the meeting of the Expert Panel on Intellectual Property in the Age of Artificial Intelligence to discuss how to protect intellectual property rights in the rapidly developing era of generative AI.

OP is a technology that identifies the senders of online information.

The government plans to create an “ecosystem where the advancement of AI technology and the proper protection of intellectual property rights are compatible,” the draft said.

To this end, the draft urges AI developers, providers, creators and other rights holders, as well as users, to work together through an appropriate combination of laws, technology and contracts.

The draft requests developers to properly collect and study data in accordance with legal rules such as the Copyright Act and the Unfair Competition Prevention Act.

For data used to train generative AI, the draft emphasizes the importance of developers and providers compensating rights holders through contracts.

Regarding technical measures to protect intellectual property rights, it recommended, among other things, OP and another technology that rejects programs that automatically collect information.

Prof. Toshiya Watanabe of the University of Tokyo’s Institute for Future Initiatives has been assigned to prepare the preliminary interim summary. The government plans to make a formal decision by the end of May.
