[Chosun Ilbo, October 13 2008] Experts Seek to Limit Online Libel

Experts from various fields are putting their heads together to create measures to limit the negative effects of the internet, in addition to introducing the cyber libel charges and online identity verification already proposed by the government.

They prefer to prioritize measures such as posting warning signs about defamation charges, classifying websites into categories, and offering training on online ethics to reduce the Internet’s harmful effects.

Lawyer Lee Ji-ho, of Jeonglyul Law Firm, believes messages warning of possible defamation and libel charges would be best, saying “The measure is particularly effective for teenagers who post online without seriously considering such consequences.”
