智能手機應用程式私隱意見調查

各位IT界朋友:

促討戲仿豁免細節  手機私隱請提意見

本 月中我的辦事處於理工大學舉辦「保護二次創作!戲仿豁免研討會」,邀請當局、法律界、版權業和網民出席,討論氣氛熱烈。雖然大家都有共識希望版權條例有效 打擊盜版侵權行為,不過在「二次創作」、「戲仿」、「超乎輕微經濟損害」等概念的定義上仍需討論和釐清。席間不少人提出分發模式和規模因著互聯網發展已經 完全轉變,沿用舊有標準容易誤墮法網,未能讓二次創作者安心。以上問題仍有時間及空間再作討論,但我相信版權持有人亦希望推動創意產業發展,我期待版權業 界能和二次創作者加強溝通,為本港創意產業創造更多價值。多謝大家參與,請繼續關注和回應諮詢,以及留意立法會復會後將舉行的公聽會。

相 信各位朋友仍然記得,手機程式「起你底」上月中被個人資料私隱專員公署點名批評嚴重侵犯個人私隱,該程式將公眾可查閱的法院訴訟及破產記錄整合為資料庫供 用戶輸入姓名搜索,與政府及法庭原本收集及公開相關資料目的不符及沒直接關係,因此違反保障資料原則,勒令資料庫營運商停止向有關程式披露資料。事件引起 業界朋友的憂慮,擔心日後公共領域資料的創新應用會被打擊。有見及此,我和香港無線科技商會(WTIA)合作,希望收集各位IT界朋友對智能手機應用程式私隱問題的意見,誠邀大家按此完成一份簡短問卷,截止日期為10月4日。


最後,政府剛剛公佈「2014 數碼21資訊科技策略」的諮詢文件,為了業界未來的穩健發展和推動社會廣泛地應用資訊科技,歡迎各位IT界朋友踴躍提交建議。當然,我亦希望聽取各位的關心業界和社會的聲音,歡迎與我聯絡提出寶貴意見,謝謝!

保護二次創作!戲仿豁免研討會

Dear IT friends,

Discussion on Parody Exemption Held; Seeking Your Views on Mobile Apps Privacy


In mid-September, I held a discussion forum on derivative works and exemption for parody in PolyU, with speakers from the government, academia, copyright industry and netizen groups. We agree on the need to stop blatant copyright infringing acts but many hold different views on the definition of derivative works and parody, and various key concepts such as "more than trivial economic prejudices." Users may easily be caught unaware by copyright laws in today's changing technology and distribution models, making netizens more uneasy to create and share. These issues still need further debate. I hope the industry and government will continue the dialogue with users to come to a consensus. I think all who joined and please respond to the consultation, and note the announcement for upcoming Legco public hearing on this.

And, as you may remember, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) published earlier an investigative report on the "Do No Evil" app, ruling that it has seriously violated personal privacy by combining and making publicly-available litigation and bankruptcy case records searchable by the public. PCPD riled that this app violated the Data Protection Principle (DPP) 3, that the original purpose in making the personal data publicly accessible was not followed, and demanded the database operator to cease supplying the information to the app provider. Many in the app development field are concerned how this might hinder the re-use of data in the public domain. So, partnering with the Hong Kong Wireless Technology Industry Association (WTIA), I would like to invite you and your friends and colleagues to click here to fill in a short survey to express your opinion on app privacy.

Last but not least, the OGCIO has just launched a public consultation for the 2014 Digital 21 Strategy last week. To promote ICT development and use I encourage all IT friends to voice your views and I hope to hear your feedbacks regarding this consultation. Please share your thoughts with me!
