Haha... yea... I guess Korea is no worse than the US sometimes... But, yea, if it infringes on free speech, or the ability of citizens to organize, then boo to that... This is just one more thing to add on to Lee Myung Bak's bad reputation... I just read today in the Korea Times that the government is going to allow Lotte to build some ginormous building over by Jamsil that could block air

@Joe: you're correct that reputation matters more than the truth in Korea. As it was explained to me, if one is sued for libel (wherein the usual defense in USA is the absolute truth), Korean courts tends to take the matter of reputation far more at hand.

But, isn't this just mainly to prevent copyright infringement? I mean... we've all gotten so used to stealing copyrighted information off the internet that we forget it's illegal.. and... kind of immoral... since we're cutting into the profit of the people who put so much time into creating the product, whether it be TV, Music or whatever. From the government... and really... from a business

Freedom of speech as we know it in North America does not exist in Korea. The right to one's reputation supersedes the right to free speech.

If one says something that hurts your reputation, even if it is true, you can sue them. If you post a video that shows someone in a compromising position, someone will come after you.

Also, I believe this is why there is no good system of
