The AIC believes that the review of the Copyright Act is timely. Given the rapid changes in technology, people communicate, transact and interact in new and different ways. As an industry association representing global Internet players, the AIC hopes to be a relevant partner as the authorities review the Copyright Act. It is from this perspective that the AIC offers its comments on the Copyright Act.
We believe it essential to be able to review and comment on the Hong Kong Copyright Protection Proposal before enactment of the legislation. We offer our comments below with the understanding that they are subject to our future review of the Bill, the draft Code of Practice and all other instruments that are relevant to the legislative proposal.
