Japanese privacy legislation goes into force

Japan's Personal Information Protection law, similar to Canada's PIPEDA legislation, requires companies operating in Japan to protect the personal information of employees and customers. While this is a bold move for Japan, I am skeptical of its effectiveness as fines appear to be limited to 300,000 Yen (US$2,804).
