A Study on Consumer Protections for the Introduction of Smart Grid
Kim, Hyun-Jae ; Jo, Sung-Han ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 9, issue 5, 2011, Pages 1~9
The smart grid can create benefits such as the expansion of consumer choice and flexibility enhancement, adaption to future electric power industry change and the increasing use of renewable energy sources. Consumers can make a contribution to improve the overall effectiveness of system through active receptive response. They can enhance the energy consumption efficiency based on more information from service providers. The Smart Grid Promotion Act, which was enacted in April 2011, contains consumer protection provisions such as information collecting, sharing, and protection measures. On this reason, it is needed to expand promotion and education regarding the smart grid to improve the consumer awareness, and the schemes to enhance smart grid consumer acceptance should be established.
A Study on Software Development and Legal Regulation
Kim, Hyung-Man ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 9, issue 5, 2011, Pages 11~20
Internet users and copyright holder have been at the center of a severe legal dispute because file-sharing soft (P2P) through Napster aggravates the violation of copyright as well as takes on the world. Though it is natural that we should hold users a criminal penalty for the illegal use of various computer programs, I think that if the supply of a computer program is generally within a circle of development act, program developer ought not to hold users criminally liable for the unintended illegal act of users. Two main issues are addressed in this work: (i) the basis and validity of legal responsibility and condemnation that appear in the precedent set as to P2P in America, Japan, and Korea. (ii) the necessity of both scientific technology development and efficient legal regulation of copyright holder. For this purpose, software development and legal regulation are reviewed analyzed from viewpoint of the criminal law.

The Effects of Introducing Surety Insurance for Royalty Collection: A Case of R&D Program for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises
Park, Hyun-Min ; Kim, Tae-Sung ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 9, issue 5, 2011, Pages 31~43
Since the R&D Program for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises started in 1997 as a part of Small and Medium Business Administration, many companies succeeded to carry out the tasks and were charged royalty fees from the government aid program in return. However, some of them were unable to pay a royalty because of their poor financial positions. Failure to pay a royalty also led to adding administrative duties including debt collection and imposing a penalty of participation restriction for other R&D programs. To solve the problems incurred by a failure of royalty collection, a divided payment using a surety insurance was introduced in 2009. That is, the R&D program recipients who were charged royalties issue surety insurance policies and submit them to a collection agency with a plan of divided payment. In this study, we estimate the main benefits of introducing surety insurance for royalty collection. First, we analyze royalty collection results from recipients supported by the R&D program from 1997 to 2006. By doing so, we calculate the main parameters that will be used for estimating the 2011 collection results. Next, besides estimating the quantitative effect, which summarizes an increase of royalty collection via surety insurance, we also analyze various qualitative effects such as simplification of the collection process and expansion of opportunities for participation in R&D programs.

The smart phone industry has shown its continuous growth even under global economy crisis and its ecological surrounding is rapidly shifting. In order to retain its global competitive advantage, it is necessary to comprehend and implement a preemptive policy regarding ecological transition of smart phones. Many developed foreign countries including the United States and Europe endeavor to maintain competitiveness in the new ecology of smart phones. Korea, which was once the most leading country in the IT industry, has accepted the fact that it lost an opportunity to take competitive advantage in the market and now it is striving to regain its past reputation. This study aims to examine the new potential category of services and products in this rapidly changing smart phone market and also suggested necessary additional efforts from the government side. We expect this study help the government establish proper ecological policies under Korea's smart phone environment.

Ha, Eun-Yong ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 9, issue 5, 2011, Pages 225~233
Internet telephony is an Internet service which supports voice telephone using VoIP technology on the IP-based Internet. It has some advantages in that voice telephone services can be accompanied with multimedia services such as video communication and messaging services. Recently, the introduction of smart phones has led to a growth in social networking services and thus, the research and development of Internet telephony has been actively progressed and has the potential to become a replacement for the telephone service that is currently being used. In this paper we designed and implemented a recording system which records voice data of SIP-based Internet telephone's voice calls. It is developed on the linux system and has some features such as audio mixing of two in/out voice channels, live packet sniffing, and the ability to transfer mixed audio files to the log file server. These functions are implemented using various open source softwares. Afterwards, this VoIP recording system will be applied as a base technology to advanced services like a VoIP-based call center system.

Despite the increasing importance of information technology in firms, the extent to which IT governance are established varies widely across the firms. To perform desirably the role of IS needed in most companies, high level of IT governance and the effective management should precede. However, the impacts of such activities and management on the IT governance have not been empirically examined in depth until now. Thus, building on the theory of governance and the institutionalization, the research model and the hypotheses of the study were formed and then empirically tested. The study used a survey of senior IT managers from 108 firms in order to examine hypothesized relationship among the following constructs: strategic alignment, IT governance committee, IT planning, EA, PMO, SLM, IT compliance, incident management, IS effectiveness, visibility, and corporate performance. A structural equation model is developed by using LISREL to assess the relative effects and interrelationship among these constructs. The results show that strategic alignment has positive influence on IT governance committee and IT planning. IT governance committee, IT planning, SLM, incident management from IT governance activities have positive effects on IS effectiveness, whereas IT compliance has a negative effect on IS effectiveness. Visibility is positively influenced by IT planning, EA, SLM. IT compliance, and both IS effectiveness and visibility have positive effects on corporate performance.
