South Korean ISP sues Netflix because Squid is so popular

A South Korean internet service provider has filed a lawsuit against Netflix, requesting that the company be ordered to pay costs caused by a surge in traffic driven by the popularity of the Squid Game series.

The dispute began in 2019, when SK Broadband filed a complaint about Netflix’s refusal to pay usage fees to the Korea Communications Commission. The companies failed to reach a settlement, according to A Korea Economic Daily The report, which prompted Netflix to sue SK Broadband in April 2020, seeking a declaration that it was not obligated to pay any additional fees.
