Creative Commons Arrives in Hong Kong

Great news for Hong Kong professional and non-professional content contributors. The University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC) will host the Creative Commons Hong Kong (CCHK).

Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC), brings the Creative Commons licences to Hong Kong by porting them into compliance with Hong Kong’s Copyright Ordinance. These licences represent a new legal alternative for the Hong Kong people, alongside other existing copyright options.

Hopefully this will encourage a wave of sharing for professional content creators. While at the same time non-professionals like amateur photographers, bloggers will be protected accordingly.

Although, it took a while this is a move in the right direction and thank you for the hard work of the CCHK legal team
