The thesis is a proposal about the legal liability of the ISP for the unlawful act of the third parties. In order to do this, first, it considered the policy whether the legal liability should imposed on the ISP or not, second, studied foreign bills and judicial precedents, third, examined the existing laws for the legal liability of the ISP and indicated problems
At present, there is the law called as the Act on Promotion of Utilization of Information and Communications for the legal liability of the ISP. The law deals with the liability of the ISP, such as the liability of the personal information protection and the eliminating contents which infringe the benefit of the law. But, the law does not provide for the clear scope of the legal liability of the ISP. So, the thesis is on the purpose of proposing the revised bill concerning the legal liability of the ISP for the Act on Promotion of Utilization of Information and Communications
The major contents of the revised bill are as follows. First, providing the clear scope for the legal liability of the ISP, so to speak, denying the liability of the ISP which notices and watches the unlawful act in general on the Internet. Second, conferring the authority which decides the unlawfulness of the contents to the Information Communication Ethics Committee to solve disputes swiftly before a lawsuit. Third, opening the information of the third parties through reasonable process for the person who was infringed the benefit and protection of the law to be able to suit the third parties with his information. The ISP is endowed with liability that it keeps the information files.
