Seoul, South Korea – The South Korean government’s Ministry
of Culture has shut down 19 "die-hard" cyberlocker file-hosting
services that were allegedly offering unauthorized music files, TorrentFreak
reported. The sites in question — which allegedly served between 2 million and
4 million users — were taken offline, and 1,000 TB of data has so far been
seized. Prosecutors are reportedly now working to identify the heaviest
uploaders. South Korea has a "three-strikes" law in place that can
lead to Internet suspensions for repeat copyright infringers.
