  • Amendment of the The Copyright Act 2018
    The Copyright Act (Articles 30-4, 47-4, 47-5) was amended in 2018 to introduce “flexible limitation provisions” for usage of copyrighted works needed for innovation through technologies such as IoT, Big Data, and AI for smooth exploitation of works. Especially, Article 30-4 describes limitation for exploitation without the purpose of enjoying the thoughts or sentiments expressed in a work. This Article is applied to actions such as collecting data necessary for machine learning in developing AI and providing those data to third parties.
