MIT Kerberos is free software.  As such, MIT is not interested in
marketing it.  People who want to use it can; people who want to base
products off of MIT Kerberos can do so.

That said, your firm is certainly welcome to base a product on MIT
Kerberos.  You will need to follow the conditions of our license;
these conditions are liberal.  Depending on what you do, you may need
to clearly label your product as distinct from MIT Kerberos.

If you base a product on MIT Kerberos, you are of course free to
market your product in Japan.
