Copyright issues in Korea

Does this fall into the same category as my entry this morning about the Cease And Desist Order by Visa for a Malaysian Blogger?

However, in Korea a crackdown "on the unauthorized posting of celebrities’ pictures in cyberspace" will start next month and is being criticised by the normal folks online.

What will happen if this goes through? After a crackdown on music and movies, are we now going to lose pictures? Back to the old, old Internet when only text existed? It is Korea only, and may be it is just a funny idea - I don't believe that Korea is shooting themselves out of the online game with such an idea.

It is a tough shot, honestly, because how should this ban be enforced. But the attempt and the idea only send shivers down my spine.
