被濫用的「不誠實取用電腦」

如今高等法院終於對政府濫用這罪行有意見,當然,最終還要看終審法院的判決。我認為法律改革委員會應盡快展開法例檢討和建議修訂,將此例用於控告詐騙罪的準備工作,撥亂反正。(閱讀全文

 

香港如何成為國際創新中心

不論是短租住宿、自動駕駛或金融科技,如果監管者不願意嘗試,對新科技一刀切全面禁止,或者政策朝令夕改,香港怎能讓創新者有信心來投資和發展?(閱讀全文

Visit to Silicon Valley: Perspectives for Hong Kong

Civic Party lawmaker Alvin Yeung and I have concluded our visit to the San Francisco Bay Area in a bid to gain insights on Hong Kong I&T development. At the Silicon Valley, we visited international tech firms such as Facebook, Google, Tesla, Uber, Airbnb, Visa, Cisco and several more. We also met with renowned incubators and investors, municipal officials undertaking Smart City and Open Data projects, entrepreneurs from Hong Kong and also participated in forums organised by Hong Kong organisation and the Stanford University.

Access to computer with criminal or dishonest intent: an abuse of law

The High Court finally voiced out the legal concerns on the government’s abuse of the cybercrime law S161 in a recent case. While we are waiting the Court of Final Appeal to lay down a final judgement, I urge the Law Reform Commission to undergo review of the cybercrime law and issue amendment proposal without further due.
 

What Hong Kong can learn from the Silicon Valley (Part 1 of 2)

From short-term home rentals, autonomous vehicles to Fintech, new technology and innovations are challenging existing regulations.
