    CRIC information counter

    CRIC (Copyright Research & Information Center) was established in 1959 as a public service corporation authorized by the Government, and has been developing its activities and programs on author's right and neighboring rights, coping with social/economic changes.

    Our services now cover such areas as public awareness raising, information services, seminar/training programs, research/survey, and international cooperation.

    We are eager to further develop our services based on our principle: to contribute to cultural development through the protection of copyright by public awareness raising as well as other activities such as research for better legislation and implementation of copyright systems.
