[Chosun Ilbo, October 8 2008] Portal Raids Aim to Curb Illegal Online File-Sharing

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on Tuesday raided the headquarters of Daum and NHN, operators of the two major web portals in Korea, to investigate illegal sharing of music files in blogs and online clubs.

Prosecutors sent around a dozen investigators to the NHN headquarters in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, and the Daum headquarters in Seocho-gu, Seoul on Tuesday afternoon, who copied materials from servers to hard disks. The prosecutors plan to summon officials from the two companies as soon as analysis of copied materials is complete, to investigate whether any illegal actions have been taking place online.
