This should only apply to mining for yourself or by deliberately choosing to opt in. Planting code on other users' machines unknowingly and benefiting only you and not them, is kinda the definition of malware.

"A man found guilty of using the Coinhive cryptojacking script to mine Monero on users' PCs while they browsed the web has been cleared by Japan's Supreme Court on the grounds that crypto mining software is not malware."

So wasting power of someone else for your own gains without paying for it is legal in Japan? Good to know.
