Lecturer: Mizuno Tasku (Lawyer, Attorney)
Known for his work related to the development of information technology and legal design, the lawyer Mizuno Tasuku gives the fourth and final keynote lecture in this public events series held as part of the Future Ideations Camp Vol. 2. Mizuno focuses on legal design for the internet era, advocating approaches to applying design thinking to the world of law so that citizens can take the lead in rulemaking. His ideas have had a significant impact on many creatives.
Artworks are increasingly raising new questions about ownership and value through how they use NFTs and blockchains, including the project Brave New Commons (2021), discussed in the second keynote lecture by Fujihata Masaki. Blockchains and smart contracts are also initiating debate about ownership and copyright in legal contexts.
This lecture explores the social contract and legal design in Web3 technology, including smart contracts, which are characterized by their use of blockchains. From the perspectives of legal design and architectural constraints, Mizuno discusses new possibilities for the social contract that contribute to decision-making through Web3 technology, the transparency of that process, and the communalization of information resources, along with the fundamental concepts behind NFTs and data ownership.
