Creators are worried that they will face criminal prosecution and be sued for copyright infringement as the government is going to amend the Copyright Law. (good opening)


By Rainbow Ho 22:25 24/04/2012

The proposed amendment of the articles 46 and 48 from the Copyright Law raised much attention. According to the draft published on the National Copyright Administration's website on March 31, the non-copyright holder has to comply with article 48, which states users must apply to the State Copyright Bureau, pay the owners via the Music Copyright Society of China and state the copyright owner. (attribute source when providing such specific information)


Geordie Toh, a legal consultant, thought that the modified copyright law should not be too harsh if creators are not using (it-unclear what the creators would use-define) formally or any commercial purposes.


“I will feel very disappointed if derivative works are all banned and becomes illegal,” said Toh, giving a talk at Shue Yan Univeristy.

He appreciated that a poster about Henry Tang’s “underground palace”, a derivative work by an online user, is creative.


“It is unhealthy to set (art) law too tight; we should not support this kind of regulations,” mentioned Geordie Toh.

Good writing, the context is present but the focus remain on the news angle. Nicely done.
