SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- The government said Thursday it will stop record labels from unjustly charging copyright fees if they are found to have massively purchased digital singles through brokers to manipulate music charts and receive more money.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced this and other measures as part of efforts to root out the malpractice of rigging charts, which is prevalent in the local pop music industry.
