Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On 17 March 2006, the Hong Kong SAR Government gazetted the Copyright Amendment Bill 2006 (the "Bill") after more than 15 months of consultation with the public including industries and other stakeholders. Much needed amendments relating to digital rights have, however, been excluded and will be subject to a further period of consultation and another bill. This article aims to provide a summary of those provisions in the Bill which relate to the computer industry.
