<要旨>
知的財産権分野は国際間商取引の活性化による経済的側面だけではなくソーシャルネットワークサービス(SNS)による社会経済的側面,そしてコンテンツ交流の急速なグローバル化による文化的側面など多様な方面でその大切さが浮き彫りにされている. 今年1年間,韓国においてもこのような知的財産権分野の世界的な変化の中で専門家たちだけではなく一般人の間にも知的財産に対する関心が大きくなった.よって,韓国の知的財産権分野の学者たちと学会においては,このような時代の召命に義務を果たそうと多様な活動を続けている.韓国においての学術活動は,国内の問題に限られず国際的なトレンドに符合しようと多様なテーマを持って活発に研究論議が成り立った.本稿ではこのような韓国の学界を含めた政府関連機関の学術活動動向及び実情について考察してみる.
<Abstract>
Among various jurisprudences, there is no such field that undergoes changes as rapidly as the intellectual property legal field. It is becoming common sense that international transactions related to intellectual property rights including state-of-the-art technologies have been increasing remarkably, and it’s becoming clear that the aspect of such changes affects not merely within a nation but also beyond the borderline and, thus, expanding all over the world.
This was another year that Korea has experienced noteworthy changes in the intellectual property field. Korea and European Union entered into Free Trade Agreement (a.k.a. Korea-EU FTA), and KORUS FTA (Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement) is expected to be entered sooner or later. Thus, some amendments were made to the intellectual property laws in Korea.
There was another big movement. The Framework Act on Intellectual Property (FAIP) was finally passed at the National Assembly this year May after having been enacted in consultation with all the governmental departments concerned, and thus intellectual property related policies are expected to be established actively in the near future.
As a result, in the circumstances where the interest of intellectual property is becoming amplified, Korean scholars in intellectual property legal field and related research institutes actively involved in various researches in order to meet the callings of the new era and to create intellectual property as the core field of jurisprudences. Hence, this paper examines and reviews such academic actives of Korean scholars and institutes in the intellectual property legal field and attempts to suggest any improvements if needed.
