  • The history of Korean copyright law is comparatively long as opposed to the public awareness of its existence. It actually exceeds one hundred years since the copyright law was introduced for the first time in Korea. Nevertheless, its provision for architecture is vague and insufficient in comparison with those of other developed countries. Many reasons may account for the situation and one of the noticeable causes was found to be the indifference of architects toward copyright, especially toward the potential benefits of copyright. This study aims to set up new provisions for architecture in Korean copyright law. The provisions adopted in most developed countries were scrutinized and their applicability in Korea was examined in depth. As the result, an addition of the definition of 'building' and the exclusion of term 'construction documents' were made to clarify the vagueness of terminology. Furthermore, moral rights for architects were strengthened than ever before in the history of Korean copyright legislation.

  • Much attention has been paid to the copyright law revised and proclaimed on July 1, 2000 on the ground that the law embraces digital medium environments. The transmission right added to the economic rights takes into account the fact that limitless cyber space represented by the Internet came to be pervasive. This is based on a lot of exhausting conflicts between those with copyrights and Internet users. The area of publication is badly afflicted in this sense, falling into confusion due to the miscomprehension of differences among the right of publication, the right of transmission and the right of reproduction.

In this context, this study is designed to point to the necessity of dealing with the right of publication with the problems of the copyright law emphasized and to ask for the aggressive reflection of the concept of digital publication in the future revision of the copyright law.

  • The objective of this study was to investigate and analyze the problems on 'System for Author's Property Right Limitation' in the North Korean Copyright Law. The NK Copyright Law had applied the international standards superficially, it may not be considered to get out of the grand frame of NK system. Especially, it is different that there is lack or short of contents on transfer, disposition, succession, trust, and so on for Author's Property Right. For example, free usages of Literary Works upon the NK law of Author's Property Right were described as 9 cases including copy and translation for personal purpose; copy in the library, etc. However, there are many insufficient items in view of international standards among the cases, showing omissions of critical terminology such as publications of literary works, purpose of usage, scope of usage, etc. Therefore, the NK law of Author's Property Right is interpreted not to be satisfied with the requirements for the law of Author's Property Right but to be legalized in terms of external announcement, and it seems not to be considered as the Author's Property Right Law with general standards enough to demonstrate the creativity freely.
