(You need to clarify the difference between political cartoon and derivative works like kuso or spoof or meme. Your report seems to treat them as equal but in fact they are very different in nature. Political cartoons in newspaper or magazine are mostly first hand creation by the authors while kuso and spoof or satire works are derivatives based on someone else original creations and social websites are usually their medium. Therefore "political comics" are not derivative work like you claim in your lead.)

By SIU, Hang Nam, 2012-03-26-Danny Wong, Art Director of Sing Tao Group, said in a talk today that derivative work like political comics on newspapers was initially intended only to be humour on political issues, which should not be insulting.


Danny Wong had work as graphic and layout designer in news agencies and advertising agencies. He joined Apple Daily when it was found, and he later directed the overall design when the Headline was found.


Derivative works are produced by modifying famous artistic pieces, or photographs of news issues by image editing tools. These derivative works are mostly circulated on social networks nowadays. The government proposed an amendment on the copyright bill in June 2011, about regulations on derivative work. This act was largely opposed by Hong Kong netizens.


Wong said that when derivative work was a humour, without an intention to insult, it was a good thing. He said those drawing political comics in newspaper would mostly be moderate, as they are in certain extent working under a news organisation and its edition principle.


Wong said that he consider sharing of derivative work as a social behaviour, many people shared political derivative work to vent. Sharing and working on derivation work, said Wong, was at the end a personal decision.


‘If you feel what you are doing is unacceptable, then don’t do it.’ Said Wong.
