However, this story indicates that contrary to the earlier report, 
Google (specifically YouTube) is *not* implementing such a system. I 
don't know their reasons or what legal analysis was involved, and I 
hesitate to base my understanding of this law on translated news 
reports. But I can't imagine why we would try to block South Koreans 
from contributing, whether or not they comply with the requirements
