posticon New Policy on Streaming Video Websites


During the last couple of months, Korean broadcasting companies have been targeting and shutting down many unauthorized streaming websites. Sites which have been shut down include MySoju and KimchiDramas. Sites which are officially authorized by the copyright holders to upload the dramas (such as CrunchyRoll, DramaFever, Hulu, etc.) have been left alone, but broadcasting companies are continuing to actively target and shut down unauthorized streaming websites that upload dramas, movies, and other copyrighted content.

Members of CJKDramas.com are not permitted to post links to or encourage/suggest the use of such unauthorized streaming websites. Such links will be deleted when they are posted. Discussions of where to view dramas online are only permitted if they are on certain streaming sites (Hulu, Dramafever, Viki, Crunchyroll, Mvibo) that have been officially authorized by the copyright holders.

Please do not hesitate to contact any of the administrators or moderators for any questions.

What about dailymotion.com? I think it's illegal, right?

Dailymotion as a site itself is legal. But like YouTube, individual users upload videos of which they don't have the ownership rights to do so. Usually it takes time for the companies to get those videos removed through the Dailymotion copyright notification page: http://www.dailymotion.com/legal/copyright.

DM is a site that a lot of the unauthorized sites mentioned above link to to stream the videos from, so a link to an episode uploaded by some random user would fall into the purview of our new policy and would be edited out - just as it would with the above mentioned sites in Hiroshi66's post above. But a link to an upload by the official broadcaster or third party partner like say DramaFever or Viki on YouTube or DM or other video portal sites would be allowed.

Re: New Policy on Streaming Video Websites


Thanks for clarifying, SuperRookie - I am actually asking as I have started watching a Japanese drama on that site - so I better hurry up and finish it before it is removed...lol....

One of the sites where I used to watch kdramas disappeared completely a month or so ago......

Yep, while sites like YouTube and DailyMotion are legal in and of themselves, certain uploads may be illegal, based on their content (full drama episodes or movies, for instance). That's a good question, though. Thanks for asking, Mara.

Re: New Policy on Streaming Video Websites


This helps me understand what happened to mysoju.com. It got me started with Korean dramas. What I really miss about it, was the extensive listing of the dramas. You could see when a drama came out, what it's names might be, most of the actors in it, how many episodes, and what it was about. This was really helpful if I was following a drama on TV. For instance, I could tell if it was close to ending, or in the case of some, if they were ever going to end. I wish it could still exist without the streaming links; although, I suppose that was the main reason for going there. There was so much information that could be found easily, by a non-Korean reader/speaker.

Welcome to the forums, fuhrmadm.

For series and cast info, http://asianwiki.com is a good site that you may want to check out, if you haven't already.

Re: New Policy on Streaming Video Websites


Welcome to the board, Fuhrmadm. Thank you for taking the time to read through our policy. I hope you'll join in on some of our discussions!

In addition to the site SuperRookie recommended, I also like DramaWiki and refer to it very often.
