CD import ban moving on

The Daily Yomiuri reports that the CD import ban is a step closer to becoming reality. The Cabinet approved the bill and the government hopes to see it passed in the current Diet session and have it enacted in January 2005. The article further states that:

Ahead of the expected law revision, the music industry promised to lower domestic prices if the returns from the ban enable them to do so. Therefore, the music industry is likely to be scrutinized by consumers who are waiting to see the industry fulfill its promise.
