詳解香港「網絡23條」

2014 年版權(修訂)條例草案 ( 網絡23條 )

2014年版權(修訂)條例草案是用作更新香港的版權制度,確保制度與時並進,緊貼科技和海外發展,緊貼國際趨勢,如歐盟、澳洲、英國、新加坡、新西蘭和加拿大,但從條例草案中看不見是跟國際趨勢看平。先來看看2014年版權(修訂)條例的內容。

首先,條例中列明只有作品的版權擁有人才享有向公眾傳播該作品的權利,即是非版權人向公眾傳播該版權擁有人的作品就有機會負上刑事責任。假如網民擅自下載一套未經版權擁有人授權的電影,再放上YouTube,即屬侵犯版權,版權擁有人及執法機關可藉此控告該網民。另外,條例指出複製原作品的實質部分即構成侵權,但實質部分的定義十分含糊。惡搞類型的二次創作,網民使用原有版權的作品再創作,又是否構成侵權呢?豁免指出引用一定的資料來源,就可使用原有版權的作品再創作,但條例並沒有交代要引用哪些資料和多少資料才足夠。即使引用了相關的資料來源,執法機關仍可以以損害版權擁有人的合法權益來控告網民,即是當執法機關認為網民的二次創作取代了原作品而損害版權擁有人利益,即可增訂罪行。此外,條例指出會豁免戲仿、諷刺、營造滑稽或模仿以及評論時事,那麼認真翻唱就算違法嗎?政治改圖又算不算是評論時事?豁免交代不清楚而且範圍狹窄,又怎能保護互聯網使用者的權益呢?

所以,香港的版權條例草案應加入美國和加拿大實行的開放式豁免 ( UGC 用戶衍生 ) 和公平使用 ( Fair Use ),以平衡和保障雙方的權益。由於二次創作是民眾應有的自由和權益,因此任何二次創作只要符合非牟利創作、不影響原作品市場及利益、沒有過量使用原作品內容以及列出原作品出處,就應當豁免。否則,版權條例就只是扼殺香港網絡自由和言論自由的當權者工具。當市民發表意見的自由都受到限制,香港就會淪為獨裁者玩弄權力的地方。

Anti-parallel traders protest striked clashes in Sheung Shui on 6 Sept

An anti-parallel traders protest has once again been triggered off in Sheung Shui on 6 Sept , with clashes striked among different groups of people with different points of view.

Ray Wong , one of the members of Hong Kong Indigenous , was arrested during a clash between the protesters and the dissidents.

A clip of video provided by one of the witnesses clearly shows that while a herd of dissidents insulted the protesters with brutal language and even assaulted them , police did not follow the proper procedures and arrested them. What they really did was simply ignoring Ray Wong's complaint about the verbal violence and physical violence he got from those dissidents, and, even more ridiculously, to  knock Ray down on the floor and arrested him.

"The video has been very clear. I hope the judge will know who's the right one and who's the wrong one. But the lying police is truly of iniquity and the whole society is becoming more and more unjust." one of the users on Facebook says.

Many improper arrest such as this case have been shown many times in Hong Kong, however, people do not appear to be indignant at it but to be holding an optimistic attitude towards it.

Ng Lai-ying, a 30-year-old lady, was convicted of assaulting a police officer with her breast during a protest on 1st March.

Judge Chan Pik-kiu said that a "deterrent penalty" have to be imposed in such behaviour of the defendant. On 30th July , judge announced Ng a verdict of guilty with a 3-month imprisonment.

Some pro-democracy citizens gathered in the court to support Ng and other defendants. They said that was an unjust judgement and it was a humiliation towards ladies , and the law of Hong Kong.

"I'd say that was a ridiculous judgement. A pro-government defendant was imposed a lenient sentence based on 'humanitarian reasons' while an anti-government defendant was imposed a deterrent sentence. And the thing is - these two cases were judged by the same judge" said on the forum.

HongKongers, after hearing the judgement , start to doubt - whether HongKong is still a country under the rule of law.

Prevalence Of UBER grabs Taxi Driver's Anger

posted 10 Jul 2015, 13:01 by Hong Kong Independence Party

Hundreds of taxi drivers drove their cars at slow speed towards Central Government Offices to protest about the exploit of picking-up applications.

Lots of applications for chauffeured transportation service are in vogue now.Vast users said that the service provided by these applications is relatively economical and more consumer-friendly.These applications include UBER , GoGoVan and these grab the business from taxi drivers.According to the organiser of the slow-driving protest, using these cars to pick up passengers is illegal and this is not fair for the legitimate drivers.

A taxi driver of New Territories District , Mr Ip , said that his income has been 200 to 300 HKD less every day , and several thousands every month. The chairperson of Hong Kong Taxi & PLB Association added that these applications steal away approximately 20% of their business and the cars used by them have not been licensed , which means passengers will get no compensation if any accident occurs.

"There is no exact law particularly projected for these cars and the service provided by them is apparently better when compared with the taxi. They endeavour to protest about it but never think about improving their service. They refuse passengers, they pay no respect to passengers, and they overcharges passengers. These are what get them like this today." users retorted.

It is with no doubt taxi drivers' business is affected by these applications, but the fact is that they are gaining in popularity. People believe the reason is very simple — taxi drivers were never providing any satisfactory service.

The high-speed rail construction cost in HK may become “bottomless hole”

posted 4 Jul 2015, 11:56 by Hong Kong Independence Party

Transport chief Anthony Cheung Bing-leung from the Hong Kong Chinese Colonial government said at a meeting of the Legislative Council’s railway subcommittee that the construction cost had raised to HK$85.3 billion,30 per cent more to go over the original budget and the opening had been delayed to 2018,according to the report from ,its project manager,the MTR Corporation.

Neo Democrat Gary Fan Kwok-wai expressed that the project was "out of control" and asked Cheung if he would call a halt to it.

A motion tabled by Democrat Wu Chi-wai to invoke special summoning powers to probe into the delay was defeated by 30 votes to 0 in the House Committee meeting. 

Pro-government legislators were satisfied with summoning witnesses and asking for information.

The pan-democrats were disappointed with the performance of The House Committee chairman Andrew Leung Kwan-yuen at the meeting and did not vote for the motion.

Blue Ribbons escorted by police after assaulting anti-China protesters

A protest against Chinese street-musicians broke out in Mongkok Sunday night
where pro-China showed up to counter the localist protesters and eventually
lead to a street scuffle.

"They're occupying the pedestrian zone to perform Mandarin songs and square dance. We consider it very disturbing and cultural encroach is not acceptable at all times," the localist says.

Having the pro-China people shown up, verbal violence and physical violence were found in no time. When one of the pro-China protesters was supposed to be arrested as he assaulted the localitsts brutally, several policemen started evacuating the protesters and escorted the assaulter away from the street.

"The police protected the people who were attacking us. They didn't protect us. We got hurt yesterday," says Simon Sin, one of the leaders of Hong Kong Localism Power. 

Police's improper judgement towards two different groups of protesters was shown patently in many protests. Many people have accused police of not being fair particularly when dealing with clashes between pro- and anti-China protesters. Police's image has now turned into a gang that protects the government and suppresses the anti-government and anti-China protesters, instead of a just organisation that judges everything fairly and nobody gets special treatment from.
