GNI is pleased to announce that Korea University Law School Professor PARK Kyung-Sin, also known as K.S. Park, will be joining GNI as an academic member.

K.S. is one of the founders of Open Net Korea, a forum for discussion and collaboration on ICT freedoms and human rights. He is currently Open Net’s director for litigation. Since 2006, he has also served as the executive director of the PSPD Law Center, a non-profit entity that organized several high-impact litigations in the areas of free speech, privacy, and copyright.

Additionally, K.S. was a key drafting partner in two pivotal NGO-led and standard-setting international efforts in online privacy and free speech: the Principles of Application of International Law on Communication Surveillance and the International Principles on Intermediary Liability

Some of the notable cases he provided testimony for include the blogger Minerva, the Internet real name verification law, the military’s seditious book blacklisting, the newspaper consumers’ boycott, and the case of Park Jung-Geun.

GNI welcomes Professor Park and looks forward to his contribution.
