Speaking at Shue Yan University's assembly. The Founder of Smark Global (Holdings) Ltd., Harry Lui, said giving the right to be forgotten to Google was the right thing to do.

Lui explained, people would have the right to request for the removal of their negative or outdated personal information which could possibly be searched by Google by using the right to be forgotten. He said this policy can ensure that the public can control their own personal data more effectively and to facilitate the operation and innovation of enterprises in the mono-market. However, he said, the over protection of your own privacy will leave some inconvenience to the user itself. He took ‘Intelligent refrigerator’ as an example, ‘if you don’t let the refrigerator knows what you left in it, how can it orders the food for you? But it is your privacy too!’, but he said, the presence of this policy can let people have choices. ‘At least you can choose whether you want that convenience or not’.


After acquiring Whatsapp, Facebook has built up its own social networking kingdom. But right after this merging, Facebook kept trying to know the personal preference by looking at the Whatsapp conversation record, so that they can insert some advertisement to Facebook which users may be interested in it. Lui said,’ if you want to protect yourself from these kind of privacy invasion, you have to be familiar with the platform you are using’. --145038 2016年10月19日 (三) 15:15 (CST)

I am not sure whether you're writing a news article, or you're writing down notes for your own record.


A businessman, who built his fortune on Internet marketing, believes Hong Kong should introduce “right to be forgotten” into local law.

Harry Lui, founder of a company specialises on Internet marketing, said the law would enhance privacy protection.

The right to be forgotten was introduced in the laws of the European Union in recent years, allowing individuals to demand Internet service providers to eliminate their records on the ground of privacy protection. However, the law was heavily criticised by campaigners advocating open governments for severely weakening the public’s right on access to information and the press’s ability to monitor power.
