[The Chosun Ilbo, July 17 2008] Most Koreans Want Tighter Internet Controls

Eight out of 10 Koreans believe a real-name based Internet system is necessary and are concerned with lawlessness online. The Korea Legislation Research Institute under the Prime Minister's office released results of a survey on Koreans' views of law and order conducted by Gallup Korea of 3,000 adults on the occasion of the 60th Constitution Day on Thursday. Some 80 percent accepted the need of real-name confirmation for online postings with 38.6 percent saying it was “highly necessary” and 41.2 percent “fairly necessary.” One-fifth of respondents were negative, with 4 percent saying “not at all necessary” and 16 percent “not very necessary.”
