[The Chosun Ilbo, September 24 2008] Chosun Ilbo Sues Daum for Copyright Violation

The Chosun Ilbo last Friday filed a lawsuit against Internet portal Daum Communications with the Seoul Central District Court seeking W1 billion in damages for copyright violation (US$1=W1,149).

The newspaper says Daum kept some 100,000 news stories, file photos and illustrations on its database and opened them to the public online beyond the deadline permitting it to store the material. This permitted readers to copy them illegally.
