Internet game curfew
we will present about the law of Internet game curfew.

The law of the Internet game curfew says that
adolescents can’t play computer games from midnight to 06:00 a.m.
Nowadays, Adolescents can play computer games freely allnight.

The government plans to prevent addiction
to computer games so that student grades will improve. and also we can expect that students will get more sleep
and become healthier because students will break their addiction to computer games.

But this system will have negative effects. First of all, adolscents will steal some adults’ registration numbers,
because that is the way that they are able to play games. Second, the korean game industry will lose profits.
The korean online game industry is on top of the world. It won’t make sure that law keep koreans from playing
games. It is questionable that It will be really effective.
