“I believe a control over re-creation is a must but the amendment should not be too strict,” said Geordie Toh, the Legal Advisor of global technology company, when giving a talk at Hong Kong Shue Yan University today.


Recently, the government asked the Legislative Council to amend the Copyright law. Although the Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2011 has not passed yet, it brought controversy (over?) the society. Citizens, especially those keen on re-creation, were worried that the freedom of speech and creation will be violated by the new amendment.


Toh believes the government should regulate the behavior of re-creation. He pointed out that some re-creators may violate the copyright of the original creators in their derivative work for profit or commercial purposes.


“The Copyright law guarantees that the rights and benefits from the creation (is) belongs to the original creators. It is a motivation to create,” he said.


However, Toh stressed that the amendment concerning re-creation should not be too strict. If the re-creators are not intend(progressive ending) to take advantage(s from-of) the derivative work, which means not to use it for making money, then it should not be restricted by the Copyright law.


“Fine tun(es-progressive ending) the legal standard will be the best way to settle disputes on the amendment,” said Toh.

Good title!
