Lack of Japanese Releases

I've type of noticed of late that quite a few albums released in Europe don't seem to be getting Japanese releases.

I first noticed this with Von Groove, who i thought were quite established over there. I think their last three albums failed to get a Japanese release.

Also albums by bands like Dogface and Elements of Friction have failed to see a release in the land of the rising sun, and now I understand even the Bon Jovi Live album isn't getting a release.

While i've heard rumour that that the once stable Japanese market is on a downturn and a few of the labels (eg. Zero) had gone to the wall, i'm still surprised to see these albums failing to get a release.

Anyone else got any thoughts, inside info ?
