The pornographic content prosecution at KakaoTalk has sent shockwaves all over the entire IT Industry, incorporating telecommunication companies, and internet firms. Rumors have it that this odd indictment is a form of a playback from nosy prosecutors.
Lee, former KakaoTalk CEO, who is 50 years has been charged with doing less in the prevention of the distribution of Child porn.
According to the prosecutors, KakaoGroup didn’t take enough action to keep lewd content and pornography from being posted and shared on their service.
This services allows for private group chats. In case such a view is extended to the IT industry entirely, it will most likely cause very huge consequences.
