If the production companies have proven themselves to be intransigent,  
shouldn't the issue be taken to a higher level?

Why, for example, does the Ministry of Culture claim to promote Japan  
as "a culture-oriented country", "the maintenance and establishment of  
cultural facilities", "international cultural exchange; designation of  
national treasures, important cultural properties", etc., and yet they  
seem to be completely MIA in this matter?
