The Internet, and information and communication technologies (ICT) present a new socio-economic infrastructure that has become essential to everyday business and personal activities. Still in a state of continuous innovation, these technologies place new values on the process of using information and knowledge. Companies offering ICT services and technologies are expected to take an increasingly significant role in corporate social responsibility. Specifically, it is critical that they are proactive in seeking solutions to societal challenges such as protecting private information and Internet copyrights, regulating content and distribution, and improving security and safety for children on the Internet. Our panelists discuss how U. S. and Japanese corporations should position and promote their corporate social responsibilities, including how to tackle social challenges and provide viable solutions in the information era, and how both countries’ IT and dotcom companies work to fulfill their corporate social responsibilities.
