[Cc-hk] Action on copyright consultation in hk

as the consultation on digital copyright in hk is about to close (april 30).
cu student union, inmedia, blogyou.com and probably some internet radio
station are planning to organize a collective submission action on april 27
(this friday), 2:30pm to the commerce and trade bureau.
during the weekend, i got calls from scmp saying that uptill last sat, the
gov only recieved 182 response. this, when compared with other
consultations' responses, is very low. we are not sure of the reason yet
(either because the gov is using "traditional" consultation method and
invites groups within their consultation list, or they have taken away those
responses that are not following their standard / not answering the
question, or people are waiting for the last min submission.)
in this action, we ask individuals and groups to cc their submission to us:
openknowledgehk.gmail. we will call press and announce to the press the no.
of submission we have collected and give chance for different stake holders
to speak out.
if anyone of you is planning to write submission in group or individual
base, i hope you can also cc to us. you may also consider joining our action
as either one of the action co-orgnaizing group (we will wait for action
co-organizing group until 12pm thursday as we need to fax the press release
on that day) or as an individual who want to express opinion in front of the
sorry for this late notice. we only start to plan for it after we got the
"news" from scmp. even the reporter is angry about the consultation... will
get in touch with journalist association and see whether they would also
by the way, all our submissions will include the demand for gov to localize
flexible copyright license in hk.
