Korean digital policy space is in flux.  Legislature is proposing server localization bills, and the administration is also proposing to loosen net neutrality, in order to, among other things, cure "reverse discrimination" against domestic platforms, allow "just compensation for network use" by the foreign OTTs, assert "tax sovereignty" over OTTs selling services in Korea, provide "stable network experience", moderate spread of illegal information through foreign OTTs, etc.  Through this seminar, international experts discussed and evaluated these trends.
