In the effort to boost emerging industries, government regulations can often, instead, hinder new innovative businesses. An additional difficulty is modifying these problematic regulations in a timely manner. In Korea, many new technology-based services such as Uber, DTC, or DNA Genetic Testing & Analysis services are banned or are difficult to start due to regulations. Some regulation experts insist that the “positive list” regulation system of Korea is not innovation friendly, and inferior to the “negative list” regulation system of the U.S., especially when trying to quickly adopt innovative new businesses. In this presentation, Soohyun Yum will make comparisons between regulations of Korea and those of the U.S. through case studies on Uber, DTC DNA Genetic Testing & Analysis service and drones.
