Wise call - contrarian and they will possibly lose all the sponsorship money. However the brand has more to lose than gain given current sentiments.

What an inspiring story. Given the deathblow that the decline of film has on Kodak. The innovation of Fujifilm is outstanding. Gambatte.

Nissan Chief Executive Makoto Uchida told a Japanese court on Wednesday that the company's former chairman, Carlos Ghosn, had held too much power, failed to listen to others, and stayed on for too long.
Indeed !. Clearly Ghosn did not get the memo that the highest position for a gaijin in corporate Japan is - head of all gaijins .
Brilliant defense Uchida & Co.. why not admit that it was a power grab - while you are at it. The only power they may get is the ruin of Nissan.
While Ghosn is no saint - he walked the talk - revived Nissan from $35 billion in debt and sure bankruptcy. not to mention the GTR. Good luck attracting overseas talent with this line of defense.

This incident will set back perceptions of the Japanese market to the 1980s bubble era when it was assumed that it was systemically rigged against investors by backroom cabals.
I encourage you to read the detailed analysis by the financial times :
It does not bode well for share holder confidence in B J C.

As anyone in the AI or software industry will tell you. AI patents are worthless... simply because their detectability is very low.
The only purpose this may serve is to offer jobs to the vast army of IP professionals of corporate Japan.

I respect this lady & wish her a speedy recovery. She is working against an archaic system.
Recall that this was the first mayor to give announcements in English for the English speaking residents of Tokyo. That takes guts to break the hanko rules. Especially for something that has no benefit in elections.

Their efforts are worthy of praise and being highlighted in the news. Indians always struck me as a disadvantaged lot - they thrive in developed nations - often meteorically rising the ranks of private companies. A truly dynamic lot.
Yet their home country offers them so little. Despite being #6 in gross GDP among nations. It ranks #146 in per-capita GDP. A cruelly jarring statistic.
This too shall pass. But may the giant rise to its true potential from these ashes.

Corporate Japan has a lot learn from FAANG companies. Trust you employees, else they do busywork while your profits plunge.

Despite producing 2/3rds of the worlds vaccine. The vaccine acceptance was slow due to rumors and fallacies. Now they rush to secure oxygen and vaccine from black market at exorbitant prices. This is a tragic cautionary tale for any anti-vaxers world over.
