Copyright Law should not be too Strict


HONG KONG, APRIL 24-Derivative products are being more and more popular nowadays. Although some people may think those products violate copyright law, Geordie Toh, a legal advisor of global technology company, said today at a university that amendment of the copyright law should not be too strict.

Strict Law kills Creativity


Toh mentioned that some of the derivative products are very creative. For example, someone changed Harry Potter’s poster with Henry Tang’s photo in order to use an ironic way to show Tang’s illegal storeroom under his house. Toh said if the copyright law is too strict and it stops people from modifying any original products, this will surely kill creativity among citizens. “The government should maintain a balance between copyright and creativity,” Toh said.


Better Cooperation is Essential


The Legislative Council will hold another meeting to discuss the amendment of the copyright law on 9th May, 2012. Toh pointed out that if people do not cooperate with the government well, the updated version of the copyright law may also be meaningless and useless. “The owners who are also the creators of original products should always bear in mind that they should cooperate with the government when the government finds out some derivative products,” Toh added.
