Regulating the internet fail, South Korea

July 22, 2009

Basically, you just need to go read the article. I’m in utter shock at this drastic move the Korean government has decided to take against copyright infringement. Yeah, we’ll still find a way to get our daily doses of K-entertainment, but can you believe this? Way to suck the joy out of life, SK. They don’t even want people posting SONG LYRICS or VIDEO PARODIES. I know that’s copyright infringement but what the heck? What the heck?

    Mang. This sucks major balls. I don’t understand why it’s so hard to see that the internet is the most creative place the world has ever seen. Doesn’t Korea realize this will kill their music/drama industry because it’s almost like free promotion. Most foreign audiences probably would have never listened to Korea music or watch a drama if it wasn’t for the internet. I for one never buy an album without listening to it first!

    “A debate over the law’s excessiveness was triggered earlier this month when Naver (www.naver.com), the country’s most popular Web site, decided to delete a video clip of a five-year-old girl singing and dancing to a Son Dam-bi song, which had been posted by a users of its blog services. ”
    WTF? For real?????
