  • With the advances in Information Technology (IT), users can download or stream copyrighted works, such as videos, music, and webtoons, at their convenience. Thus, the frequency of use of copyrighted works has increased. Consequently, the number of unauthorized copies and sharing of copyrighted works has also increased. Monitoring is being conducted on sites suspected of conducting copyright infringement activities to reduce copyright holders' damage due to unauthorized sharing of copyrighted works. However, suspected copyright infringement sites respond by changing their domains or blocking access requests. Although research has been conducted for improving the effectiveness of suspected copyright infringement site detection by defining suspected copyright infringement sites' response techniques as a lifecycle step, there is a paucity of studies on automation techniques for lifecycle detection. This has reduced the accuracy of lifecycle step detection on suspected copyright infringement sites, which change domains and lifecycle steps in a short period of time. Thus, in this paper, an automated detection technique for suspected copyright infringement sites is proposed for efficient detection and response to suspected copyright infringement sites. Using our proposed technique, the response to each lifecycle step can be effectively conducted by automatically detecting the lifecycle step.

  • When looking at the online copyright infringement, the advertisements have served as a revenue source. Recently, copyright holders and state agencies have requested to stop and withdraw posting the ad. in order to prevent copyright infringement. This way is very easy and efficient. However, the problem is that it is not clear whether the request is appropriate. For the request to be valid, posting the ad. should be a kind of indirect infringement, or if not, it must have a suitable reason. If there is no basis or reason for the two, the request should not be asked recklessly. In the US relevant cases, something more than simple relationship with direct infringers or more material contribution to the direct infringement is required to impose secondary liability for copyright infringement. However, just posting the ad. cannot be considered as the close relationship and moreover, it is not material contribution. Thus, posting the ad. is not secondarily liable for copyright infringement. In addition, the bills which was proposed in 2011, so called SOPA and PIPA, had a provision which can stop and withdraw the ads in the piracy sites. Its opponents raised the following problems: withdrawing the ad. is the censorship, gives the burdensome to the sites, and causes the imbalance due to the overload protection of copyright. Also, under the ad blocker case, to remove the ad. discretionally consists of illegal activity or copyright infringement. As a result, because the request to stop and withdraw posting the ad. is not reasonable, the request should be asked carefully.

  • Technology and culture are converging with various industries to create added value of contents. In addition, the country is creating a foundation environment for grafting new technologies onto the cultural content. However, copyright infringement by voice demand and supply is continuously occurring for cultural contents with copyright, and more and more recently, there have been increasing cases of creating and operating sites with servers overseas to bypass monitoring on infringement sites. To prevent this, various copyright protection studies are under way in many areas, but the current detection and prevention technologies are largely reactive and therefore have problems of effectiveness. Accordingly, this paper proposes a model of the lifecycle of copyright infringement site to lay the foundation for preemptive response to the distribution of illegal copies through analysis of the lifecycle of copyright infringement site.

  • This study was conducted to examine the effects of Internet ethics education. To do so, I compared the knowledge, affectivity and behavior of students on the copyright infringement between before and after Internet ethics education. The subjects of study were 150 students who had taken Internet ethics course in university. Upon comparing their knowledge and affectivity on the copyright infringement between before and after Internet ethics education, they scored higher after education than before, which was statistically significant. The subjects' behavior on the copyright infringement had a tendency to increase after education, but there were not significantly increased. This result showed that the current Internet ethics education has some limitation in making the students practice what they know. To resolve this problem, it is important to do early-childhood Internet ethics education. And more research on diverse teaching and learning methods in Internet ethics education is needed to produce educative results.

  • Recently, a growing number of copyright infringement websites have illegally copied and posted works such as broadcasting, movies and music, and posted advertisements to make profits. The research is aimed at finding solutions by analyzing the current status of advertisements on copyright infringement websites. The results of this study are as follows. First of all, there are many advertisements harmful to teenagers, such as casinos, betting, games, adult products, and adult meeting, which is necessary to deal with. Secondly, there were many unethical advertisements on copyright infringement websites, but there were also many advertisements from famous companies. Advertisements from large companies and famous brands are also being executed continuously, which can create trust in illegal sites. Therefore, the government, advertisers, citizens, and academia should participate in a campaign to root out the use of illegal websites because it is impossible to eradicate them by crackdown alone. In this paper, we pointed out the practical problems of advertising execution, the main source of revenue for copyright infringement websites, and presented a comprehensive solution.

  • Most of the existing methods make the index key with every 6 words in every sentence in a document in order to identify copyright infringement between two documents. However, these methods has the disadvantage to take a long time to inspect the copyright infringement because of the long indexing time for the large-scale document. In this paper, we propose a method to select the longest word (called a feature bock) as an index key in the predetermined-sized window which scans a document character by character. This method can be characterized by removing duplicate blocks in the process of scanning a document, dramatically reducing the number of the index keys. The system with this method can find the copyright infringement positions of two documents very accurately and quickly since relatively small number of blocks are compared.

  • Recently, with the diversification of media services and the development of smart devices, users have more opportunities to use digital content, such as movies, dramas, and music; consequently, the size of the copyright market expands simultaneously. However, there are piracy sites that generate revenue by illegal use of copyrighted works. This has led to losses for copyright holders, and the scale of copyrighted works infringed due to the ever-increasing number of piracy sites has increased. To prevent this, government agencies respond to copyright infringement by monitoring piracy sites using online monitoring and countermeasure strategies for infringement. However, the detection and blocking process consumes a significant amount of time when compared to the rate of generating new piracy sites. Hence, online monitoring is less effective. Additionally, given that piracy sites are sophisticated and refined in the same way as legitimate sites, it is necessary to accurately distinguish and block a site that is involved in copyright infringement. Therefore, in this study, we analyze features of piracy sites and based on this analysis, we propose an intelligent detection technique for piracy sites that automatically classifies and detects whether a site is involved in infringement.
