Linking to an illegal music found no infringement

To be brief,

The Supreme Court of Korea ruled that linking to an illegal music was not an infringement, though uploading unauthorized contents was infringement.  Wasn’t there a similar ruling before?  Let me check later.

Hybrid patent system

In the not too far past, the Korean patent system looked very much like that of Japan. Lately, Korea adopted several American patent systems, i.e., the provisional application system in 2008, RCE (being examined in the National Assembly).

The American patent system is a unique system that is unlike most other patent systems in the world.

So, the Korean patent system is becoming a hybrid.
