Abstract

The 1988 Olympic Games, trade surpluses since 1986, and the Korean edition of Saul Bellow's More Die of Heartbreak all indicate South Korea's new found global prominence. While the first two are rewards of a new status, the third represents one of its responsibilities. Bellow's novel, issued in Seoul in July 1987, was the first foreign publication to be protected under South Korea's revised Copyright Act.' Enacted in July 1987, the Copyright Act is one of a series of measures designed to enhance protection of foreigners' intellectual property rights in South Korea. Revised patent, trademark and computer program protection acts accompanied the Copyright Act. Persistent pressure by the United States deserves much credit for these measures. The following article will describe copyright protection in South Korea under the new Copyright Act, emphasizing the rights of foreigners. (The rest omitted)
