Nowadays, it is so difficult to balance between the freedom of the press and the privacy right in Hong Kong. Stephen Quinn, the director of digital development in South Morning Post, said the experience in local shows that it is easier said than done.


“It is not easy to find out who are taking photos now. There are some applications can take photos but do not present on the cell phones. For example, you may think that someone is reading on his or her cell phone. In fact, he or she is shooting by the phone,” he said.


He said it was a meaning lesson for journalists that the Privacy Commissioner ruled that two magazines, including Sudden Weekly and Face of the Next Media, had violated the privacy law by talking photos of three TVB artists at their home last week.


“We can take a picture just few seconds or even less than a second now. Reporters did not have enough time to think what should do and should not do at that moment. It is easy to make a wrong decision before they took it,” he said.


He said the university should provide more lessons about ethics of reporting, so the journalism students would understand how to balance the freedom of press and the privacy right.
