Cybercrime crackdown in Korea

Date: February 05, 2007

People committing illegal acts online, including defaming someone or campaigning before the designated campaign period begins, will be subject to punishment, police said Monday.

The move comes after many celebrities claimed to have suffered psychological damage after defamatory comments were posted online. Political user-created content (UCC) is also in the police’s crosshairs.

The police will conduct the crackdown during the next three months, with more than 700 cybercrime police officers taking part. Operators of Web sites that host illegal content will be punished.

Police are looking to cut down on malicious comments, insulting or abusive language, illegal political campaigning, fraud, porn and gambling sites, and spam.
