EDIT: Woah! You have returned peace to my family; for this I am forever grateful! May you not be just a stranger any ronger. This joke existed in , but had nothing to do with the Japanese.

Despite it being racist it's still hilarious so Idk why either Not that these legal deterrents work any better than the ones elsewhere in the world. But having personal computers at home is a lot less common for them than the west. Most households do not have a computer or even network connections. The percentage of internet users has been higher in Japan than the US since at least I'm not sure where this idea comes from that "most" households don't have computers. Perhaps it's based on some outdated information and then people forget the world changes, everywhere.

Everyone has a phone though, so piracy or buying a digital album wouldn't exactly be difficult.

As someone else had pointed out in the thread, a lot of domestic Japanese music labels simply do not make available their albums for digital sales. This makes buying a digital album a bit difficult. This may be different for, say, buying American songs being available on iTunes, but a majority of their music market listens to domestic music. Your point about piracy is true. It's pretty much illegal anywhere and everywhere these days, but anyone that wants something is still going to do it.

One source here. Back in my day no song was available digitally, yet we still managed to download music through Napster. Can confirm. My wife's family has a laptop, but it sits in a drawer. My 27 year-old brother-in-law has no interest in computers. I've probably downloaded hundreds of gigs worth of stuff since coming here.

They don't care about piracy except on paper to look good to America. Exception: if a Japanese company was mad that someone in Japan was uploading their domestic media, their complaints would be listened to.

I think this has happened maybe once since the new laws passed, and that was just to keep up appearances. Piracy is looked down upon like anywhere else but iirc japanese, unlike most of the world, mostly buy physical media. How does this regulation work for digital music? Can I go on Amazon. As far as I'm aware the laws only apply for physical medium, and hasn't "caught up" to digital sales yet. However because the culture of price fixing is already there, their digital sales are costly as well.

The average cost of an iTunes song in Japan is higher than other places in the world. I've read that the average is yen.

Welcome to Reddit,

Edit: Just checked Amazon. See here. Furthermore a lot of Japanese music simply isn't made available to be purchase legally online. One more thing to mention is that they've got a lot of "goodies" in place to discourage digital sales. But why would the artists care? Do they get money from the japanese government for that? Because it looks like the artists would still get their money no matter where the release is from.

Not every consumer imports his music. They simply will reach more fans and even get known by more it is overall the better decision if they want to grow their fanbase. CDs are extremely expensive in Japan, to the point where it's cheaper for a Japanese person to import an album from America or Europe. Japanese labels and publishers will therefore try to add something extra to the Japanese version to discourage people from going that route.

I don't think they can.

There are laws in Japan regulating prices for things like books and CDs. Selling them below the mandated price is illegal. It does nothing to enhance competitiveness. Not only are you reducing competition between different retail outlets, but you also make your domestic products less competitive against foreign products, thus the imports. Stability, perhaps, but whoever wrote that either doesn't know the meaning of "competitiveness" or is deliberately doublespeaking.

No, it shifts the competition to what kind of additional value the retailers can provide. If it's the same price at your store as it is everywhere else, then why should I buy it at your store? Do you have a better atmosphere? Friendlier or more knowledgeable staff? Will I have to stand in line to check out?

What else can I purchase while I'm there? Personally, I'm way more interested in THAT kind of stuff being the winning strategies to succeed in that kind of market. It's similar to what grocery stores do here in America, it's wasteful, and it's why more people are going to no-frills, low-cost places.

You say that but since a significant amount of people in Japan import anyway it seems the trade-off isn't worth it to many. Bottom line is for most shopping you go to the place that sells you what you need at the lowest price. Price floors should really only be used in emergencies to be honest.

What's the problem with allowing stores to compete by lowering prices to generate business this like macroeconomics If you've ever bought a Japanese CD you'll find they have many incentives designed to win purchases. AKB48 and its sister groups have a minimum of 4 versions of each single. Each single contains the main track as well as minimum 1 b-side. Consider now there might be a fan club edition with a special track, a special Family Mart alternate cover, a bonus track only available from the version bought from mu-mo shop etc and each single ranges in price from JPY to JPY.

Collectors will buy them, most fans will just buy the "most complete" version and casual fans will rent it so there is an obvious motivation to release as many versions as possible. It protects mom and pop stores from big retailers. This prevents a big chain retailer from undercutting small stores until they're forced to go out of business, only to bump prices back up now that they have no competition. That's a whole other thing, though.

It a very important difference. But if the price is fixed to a lowest price, isn't the consumer loosing out on further possible discounts? It makes sense to regulate pricing on necessities. These regulations are different, because they are designed to protect the consumer from artificially high prices or gouging.

I think it's absurd to regulate luxury items in the opposite direction because it only pushes them further out of reach of the lower classes. Free markets aren't all evil. We can leverage them to our advantage.
