Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This study explores, by examining international and comparative perspectives, the applicability of the right of reply to Internet media. The paper tries to identify current legal issues regarding the right of reply, a tool some believe capable of striking a more equitable balance between the freedom of expression and the personal rights within the Internet sphere. Largely focusing on how South Korea and the United States apprehend right of reply, this study attempts to demonstrate that right of reply could help resolve a lurking tension between freedom of expression and personal rights on the Internet.
