[Moon Young-soo Moon Young-soo reporter] It is expected to begin at the end of the year as soon as the legislation of the Game Industry Promotion (hereinafter referred to as the amendment to the game law), which includes the disclosure of the probability-type item acquisition rate disclosure, is as early as the amendment of the revision of the game law. In the game industry, all amendments are focused on regulations rather than promotion, and the voices of concern are continuously raised.
According to the game industry on the 4th, all the amendments to the game law have not been discussed since the public hearing held in February this year. This is because large political events such as the presidential election and the launch of the Yoon Seok-yeol government in March were followed, and the legislative review itself became impossible as the ruling and opposition parties were confronted with the second half of the National Assembly.
Even if the National Assembly will be launched in the second half of the year after the agreement, the national audit season is coming to the end of the game and politics. The legislative debate, which had been expected to play after the February public hearing in February this year, has been sluggish.
The amendments to all of the representatives of lawmakers Lee Sang-heon (Democratic Party) in December 2020 focused on revising the regulatory-oriented game industry laws created after the 2006 sea story and reflecting the changed environment.
All amendments include ▲ simplifying the classification procedure ▲ mandatory indication of probability-type items ▲ exemption from non-profit game grade classification ▲ Supporting small and medium-sized game companies ▲ Light contents of mentality exemption ▲ banning game advertising with illegal contents have.
In particular, the game company was concerned by the game companies, including rating, game contents information, probability-specific items, and other types of probability information, and other matters prescribed by Presidential Decree.
The game industry is concerned that the amendment to the full-scale amendment, including these probability-type item regulations, is focused on regulations rather than promotion. In February, the Korea Game Industry Association submitted a statement to the National Assembly that contains the fact that all amendments are unconstitutional elements.
At the meeting attended by Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Park Bo-kyun, on the 1st, it was reported that all amendments were focused on regulations rather than promotion. In particular, it was pointed out that as all amendments include a number of unconstitutional regulations, such as impairing the predictability of the operators, it is necessary to eliminate and revise the unconstitutional factor.
