[Tha Hankyoreh, June 4 2007] Internet paves way for new forms of defamation

Old criminal records, partially reported stories result in damage to individuals

Asking to remain anonymous, an individual posted the following on an Internet portal’s online bulletin board: "When I search my name on an Internet portal, an article regarding a robbery I committed a long time ago comes up. I am concerned over the possibility that my child may find out about my crime one day by searching my name on the Internet. I was already cleared of the crime, so please delete the article."
