Media Digest published an article Source of Hong Kong Copyright Amendment Bill Dispute on 5 February composed by Benjamin Zhou of HKTR. To find out the issue at core of the contentious copyright amendment bill, the author reviewed the documents maintained by the Legislative Council of Hong Kong in the past 10 years.
The government and civil society groups adopt different interpretations of the bill due to their divergent stances. They circulate the so called "lazyman bag" of different versions on the Internet, which have confused the general public. After a comparison of the "bags", a study on the bill, and consultations with scholars, HKTR prepares an independent Q&A for you.
