Shutting down of Android Market in Korea Delayed for 15 days

Google Korea requested Korean Game Rating Board (GRB) to defer deadline for the reply to GRB’s ‘recommendation’ that required Google to block the access to unrated games in Google’s Android Market.

Google Korea stated that “We are closely cooperating with headquarter to reply to GRB soon.”

“‘Soon’ is usually accepted as ‘within 15 days’,” the official of GRB said. It meas we have another 15 days to wait to see whether Google really shuts down the Android Market in Korea.

I mentioned the Youtube case in earlier post, but this case is slightly different from the Youtube blocking issue. Google framed the Youtube issue as a matter of ‘freedom of speech’. But this time, game rating is rather a business process issue.
