ABSTRACT

There is a movement that establishment of personal information protection law again under Lee Myung-bak's administration. In this instance, disputed points settled as quickly as possible and desirable bills are drafted. Because Established discussion for the legislation of personal information protection law was already repeated several times. This study shows that the bill contains key issues of personal information protection under debate until now. We can evaluate it is a great step forward. Because the bill contain material of highly diverse for the minimization of people's damage by leaking personal information and the protection of right to decision of personal information in the information society. By establishing personal information protection act, the perpetual dangers of personal information leaks will be decreased. So that it is expected that it could contribute to the steady development of personal information industry. Meanwhile, the status and the role of personal information protection organization amounted to nothing at all in the process of the personal information. But a bill hasn't passed yet because of the status and the role of personal information protection organization that has not gone uncontested before. Ultimately, the committee of personal information protection prescribed on a alternative lacks theses things like the independence and powers of personal information protection organization compared to international standards and earlier discussion at level in the meantime. I think that the committee according to the alternative in this situation is not only disorganized but also inconsistent. so that this committee will not do an adequate role as the independent organization. Therefore I think that the alternative of personal information protection law demands systematization, disambiguation and rearrangement.
