Korean revenge porn site owner arrested
SEOUL – Police have arrested one of the owners of a notorious revenge porn site banned in 2016.
Sora. net had more than a million users and hosted thousands of videos taken and shared without the knowledge or consent of the women featured.
Korean police say the website’s owners made money from illegal brothel and gambling ads on the site.
But the suspect, surnamed Song, has denied this, saying the site’s users created the illegal content.
Producing and disseminating pornography is illegal in South Korea. Song has been charged under the Children and Juvenile Sex Protection Law.
She is one of four people, including her husband, who ran the site from 1999 to 2016, using overseas servers, the Korea Herald reports.
South Korean women have been demonstrating against sexual abuse.
