Slander on the Internet, Civil Litigation, Sender’s Information Disclosure, Alternative Dispute Resolution

However, the procedure for disclosure of sender’s information, which is used to prepare for filing a lawsuit claiming damages against the wrongdoer, had problems regarding the structure of the procedure and the subject of disclosure. Therefore, the Act on Limitation of Liability of Providers was amended in 2021. This paper provides an overview of this amendment.
