An Internet Curfew for South Koreans May Be Enacted

South Korea says it is worried about their youngsters becoming internet addicts.  Their answer?  Create a ban that makes it ILLEGAL for internet service providers to provide online gaming access to users under the age of 16 between 12 midnight and 6 am.

Many South Korean students are in school until midnight due to the demands of the school day, studying, and extracurricular activities.  So, essentially, this bans game playing.

They are also considering parental tools to help parents set limits on the maximum number of hours young users are allowed online each day.

The bill will be reviewed by their Parliament this month.

What are your thoughts?
