Third subject is Standard!



[Dictionary Definition]

A standard is a level of quality or achievement,
especially a level that is thought to be acceptable.

I think the standard is ‘Degree of Everyone can Accept’.

Until now, we had investigated the law and regulation.
Although you don’t want to obey law and regulation, you must do them. Or you will punished!

But, standard is little different.

Have you ever received too low grade or been inferior to performance assessment’s standard?

Suppose there are the school which has standard that must pass for each test.
Student who can’t receive score ‘B’ have to take a class in vacation.
If so, students will study according to ‘B’.
Then, ‘B’ can be called ‘Standard’.

Here’s the Association to introduce the standards we need to know about create a website.

– W3C


W3C is abbreviation of the Word Wide Web Consortium(http://www.w3.org).

It’s one of the International organization for web standardization.
They organized aimed to spread WWW through share technology making the web and standards.

W3C is an consortium that set up the standards to create a website about HTML, graphics, and document formats such as determining the user’s work environment areas.

Almost website that we use is maybe follow the W3C’s standard.

Second subject is Regulation!



[Dictionary Definition]

Regulations are rules made by a government or other authority in order to control the way something isdone or the way people behave.

Regulation is not as strong as the law, but never trivial.

In a football game, there are a lot of regulations such as the players should not touch the ball with hand, and play in a gentlemanly way, etc… It won’t go to jail or pay a fine even they break the regulation. Just will be simple punished like receive a yellow card.

Then regulation is not important? NO!

We can enjoy the game safely with the regulation.
Like this, regulation play a role to correct the order of our society.

There are two regulations that we can understand easily.

First, game classifications

[PEGI] Methods of grade classification

 Before buy or play the game, we should look into the classification and content warnings. Bloody and violent game could be mentally disturbing for young children, pregnant woman and old man. But there are many adults who want to play violent game. Also, people who just enjoy playing a game the grooming of farm animals exist, too.

For these people, PEGI (Pan European Game Information) designate grades.


[PEGI] Details

Considering these, and PEGI attached a labels. There are five grades.

[PEGI] Grade labels

 NEXT, What about Korea? Korea have game classification, too.

GRAC (Game Rating and Administration Committee) designate grades.


GRAC’s classification is similar to PEGI. Difference is no classification of 3 and 7 years of age.
They are classified as ‘Everyone’.

Second, asa

ASA is acronym for Advertising Standards Authority.

Prior to making website, we should study about legal constraints.

If you create a website without any knowledge of the legal constraints, you may be punished. Because you didn’t know about that! Of course, studying legal constraints seems to be difficult. So I picked the three most important things of legal constraints which are needed when creating a website.

I’ll write a report with them : Law, Regulation and Standards!

These are important for other fields as well as creating web-site!
Among them,

today’s subject is Law!

Symbol of law and justice in the empty courtroom, law and justice concept.


[Dictionary Definition]

The law is a system of rules that a society or government develops in order to deal with crime, business agreements, and social relationships.
You can also use the law to refer to the people who work in this system.

Explain in easy terms, we live by keeping order because of law.

For example, in the days when there was no law, murderers and robbers have not been punished.
People thought that the strong man dominate over the weak is reasonable.
That time have been corrected due to the law.

Of course, there are murderers and robbers in all ages. But these time, LAWs exist, too!
Therefore, now everyone think stealing and murder is not justified. This is the law’s role.

There are two concepts under the law.

First – Copyright

If you infringe a copyright, you will be punished.

Copyright is the right of the creator’s works, such as literary, artistic creations.
Government is legislate about copyright and administer tightly for people’s creative activity.

In Korea, It valid while the duration of creator’s life and until 50 years after the creator’s death. During this period, nobody use creator’s works without permission.
If someone use them without permission, they will be punished!

But we have to observe the proprieties even if the copyright runs out.
Sometimes bad people do evil deed to creator’s work.
Scribble on the drawing, edit ludicrous photos on the computer…
Of course, copyright is disappear.
But they will be punished because they infringe the author’s moral right.

If we respect the copyright each other, more nice work will come out 🙂

Korea Copyright Commission

It’s important to respect other’s copyrights, but to protect my copyright is important, too.

Then, how to protect my copyright?

I can register my copyright at
Korea Copyright Commission(http://www.copyright.or.kr/main.do).

It’s not free. You need to spend little money. But to register your own creation is very valuable.

Second – health & safety


It means Public Liability Insurance.

Public Liability Insurance is National insurance that company to be given to keep the health and safety of employees.
Because employees have a right to work healthy and safety. It’s protected by law.

Employee’s fault is to say company’s fault.
Therefore, when an accident occurs on property or financial loss, company should have legal liability. Public Liability Insurance is for those situations.

I looked for some cases which applies to the insurance, in the insurance site.

To protect the employee’s health & safety, companies have to observe the law.

photoc-camera_w2 music__ambiance_by_ark4n-d4nh2ji

From the perfect photos to beautiful background musics and funny videos,

do you make yourself all the materials to your website?

Of course, you can create them for yourself. But usually it’s very hard work!
So you borrow or buy the materials, or even hire photographer or musician.
At this point, you have to be careful.
You should take over the copyright about photos and musics they created.

RELEASE FORM is the contract that to prove that the transfer of rights.
That is why you need to write it.


Example of photo release form.
I’ll create own release form and attach TASK 2 – Artist release forms.

There are another cases that you need to write the Release form.

You should take over the copyright of the people inside of your materials.
For example : Interviewer in your videos, and the models in your photos.

You’re going to say them ‘where their face, voice, and etc are to be used and why use that.’
and receive agreements. If they refuse, find others.

We often see students are request the interview to tourists. All of them write the Release Form? Some tourists enjoy the interview, but commonly they don’t know purpose or validity.

But we must create Release Form to protect rights myself and all people in my materials.


RELEASE FORM should be include these :

– Purpose of use
– Transfer of rights
– Transferer and Transferee’s information and sign
– Contract date
– etc
