Although the key proposed amendments remain the same, the sections of the four classifications of service providers (namely, intermediary, caching, hosting, and information location tools) have been re-organized. In addition, under a new provision on "notice and take down" for copyright infringement occurring on a system or computer network, it will be limited to two classifications of service providers, namely, hosting and information location tools. Moreover, to issue a copyright infringement notice to the service providers, among other requirements, the copyright owner shall take into account the provisions on exceptions to copyright infringement.
Since the Draft Amendment is still under the Committee's consideration and there will be a hearing with the relevant organizations from both the public and private sectors, the Draft Amendment is still subject to change. In addition, due to the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the timeline on when the Draft Amendment will become effective may be impacted. However, we will continue to monitor its developments closely and will provide updates as appropriate.
