The government is considering whether re-creation should be published as a criminal law. Geordie Toh, the Legal Advisor of global technology company said it could not be too brutal or too lenient in terms of restricting re-creation,when attending the general assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University this afternoon..


Toh said that it was not expected to find out some recreation pieces were being used by others in terms of earning money. “However, if the law is finally enforced, it should not be too strict. The government should strike a balance between protecting creativity and the freedom of information flow,”


He explained it is popular in Hong Kong that netizens use specific terms to make an innuendo of political leaders while they are not using it to take advantages. Toh took the illegal basement scandal of Henry Tong Ying-yen, the post-Chief Secretary of Administration, as an example. “Some online re-creations are good! The one putting Henry Tang’s face onto the poster of Harry Potter and rewriting it as the Chamber of secret are really interesting.”


“If the copyright law is passed, re-creation could be a serious criminal,” said Toh. He explained that the prosecutor will be the government but not the owner of the work. “However, if the owner’s view reverse from government, it could not worked even the law is passed.”
