Thank you for very good advice.
Updated the FAQ cover page with the following note.

◆This FAQ is based on Japanese law. Laws vary from country to country, and
measures for each case may vary from company to company. Consult your
company or organization's intellectual property counsel for specific issues.

Please let me know if there is any shortage.

Best Regards

Shane and Ouchi
I agree that there is much good information in the document. The responses are well thought out and may be directly implementable after review with Legal.

However, I do see that there may also be some inconsistencies in interpretation both at a country and individual company level.

Would you consider perhaps overall disclaimer for the FAQ responses that directs the reader to discuss application of the specific issue and answer with the Company or Organization’s Intellectual Property Legal Counsel? That Legal Counsel would be responsible to determine the precise interpretation under the Country and Company laws or policies.
