The Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2011 has aroused public attention(s). Some of them are afraid (of-that) the amendment will limit people’s creativity, such as creating derivative works. Also, there was a rumor that the bill will turn all online sharing activities illegal. Yet, the government has refuted it shortly.


Geordie Toh, legal consultant of a technology company(it would be good to include the company name), claimed that copyright law is sensitive in Hong Kong. “Public awareness of freedom of speech is strong (in?) here. The government should be careful to deal with that during the legislative process,” he added.


However, as a legal advisor Toh agreed to the government that derivative works should be restricted. “I think there should be a law to control people’s derivative works. Yet, I don’t think a strict law should be imposed on the works. It is not healthy (to-for) the society,” he said.


Lastly, Toh disclosed that he enjoyed seeing people using creativity to make derivative works to discuss (about-omit) current issues. “I love the derivative posters of Henry Tang during the Chief Executive election,” he said. From (an) audience point of view, Toh said that he would be disappointed if all derivative works ha(ve-d) to be banned.

Good title.
