[HONG KONG – April 24, 2012] Many Hong Kong citizens are opposed to the proposed Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2011. However, “I believe some suitable limitations are needed to ensure the exercise of copyright,” Geordie Toh said, a legal consultant of a network company (name?), in Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday.


The proposed Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2011 has been considered (as-omit) a tool to restrict derivative works. Therefore, it has received strong opposition from the citizens. Toh said he cannot give any comment on the bill before he reads (about) the details (of it-omit).


However, “there is a need to regulate the creation of derivative work,” Toh said. He explained that the famous wuxia novel writers, Jin Yong’s works had been used to earn profits by some people. “So, I believe some suitable limitation on re-creation is needed to protect the rights of the owner of the publications,” he said. (good!)


Although he appreciates and respect the derivative works, he thinks the ethic issue of derivative works (should also be concerned-revise, who is concerned?). He said a picture, which replaced victims of Cultural Revolution with Henry Tang’s face (on when) Tang’s scandal of unauthorized building works was exposed, shows the ethic problem of derivative works. It was because (it might recall-again, analyze subj-verb relationship, who recalls?) the sad memories of the victim’s family. “It is not only about copyright, but also a problem of respect,” he said. He thinks people should respect others and think twice before re-creation.

Other than a few subj-verb issues, good descriptive writing.
