ABSTRACT

With the recent development of ICT technology and the expansion of smartphone, ‘one person media’ has become activated. And as a result, broadcasting of individual media through the internet has become a social issue. The Internet is often referred to as "sea of ​​information." Even though people are separated from each other in time and space, they can freely communicate and share common interests through the Internet. Recently, with the development of 5G broadband technology, a great amount of video information can be transmitted. And as a result, personal broadcasting (Internet Broadcasting Through Internet or Internet Personal Broadcasting) is rapidly activated. From the suppliers' point of view, it is possible to provide images in real time through a high-resolution camera. And consumers are able to watch broadcasts anytime and anywhere without restriction of time and space. However, illegal contents containing pornographic and violent nature are spreading indiscreetly through Internet broadcasting. In order to solve such problems, some argue that it is necessary to regulate 'internet personal broadcasting' in accordance with current broadcasting law. On the other hand, according to the view that respects freedom of expression on the Internet, it should be based on the general regulation of Freedom of Expression, rather than the strict regulation of broadcasting. In this paper, I analyze the present status of Internet personal broadcasting and its characteristics. Based on this analysis, I propose a desirable regulatory scheme for Internet broadcasting from the viewpoint of future law. In the future, it is necessary to govern content and structural regulation in accordance with broadcasting, only in case of necessity and only under strict conditions. However, such restrictions should be limited to the extent that freedom of expression of the Constitution is not hindered.
