Although computer programs are mentioned as copyrightable works in the Korean Copyright Act, a separate code for the protection of computer programs was enacted in 1986. The Korean Computer Program Protection Act is a special provision within the Korean Copyright Act which implies that computer programs protection includes provisions similar to that of copyrights.

This Act aims to protect the author's rights of computer program works and derivative programs and strives for fair utilization of the program and promoting thereby the program-related industry and technology.
