Sexual harassment is on the rise in the metaverses
South Korea intends to look deeper into this problem
They have created a special commission and plan to punish providers of metaworlds
The Metaverse is a new and still crude invention. It promises us many benefits, but keeps silent about some threats. For example, about how users will protect themselves and their children from violence and sexual harassment.
South Korea wants to put an end to this. The local Communications Commission has set up a special council to study ways to control virtual maniacs.
Here is what we know so far:
The commission will include 20 participants.
These will be specialists in the field of law, media, technology and industry management.
They will discuss issues inclusivity, sexual crimes and violence in the Metaverse.
The authorities want to hold online operators accountable for the actions of customers on their platforms.
