[JoongAng Ilbo, National, Social affairs, October 10 2008] Copyright crackdown expands to movie sites

Prosecutors have ramped up their probe into copyright violations, shifting the investigation to several Web sites which they say illegally provide movie files and software programs.

The Seoul Central Prosecutors’ Office announced that 15 prosecutors raided the headquarters of six Web sites in Seoul and Gyeonggi Province yesterday, confiscating computer data and financial documents.

On Wednesday, the nation’s two biggest Internet portals - Naver and Daum - were also raided for allegedly providing music in an unauthorized manner.
