> Hi All,
> The meeting was re-schedule to last Tues and the minutes is attached below:
> Date / Time: 23 May (Tue), 11:10 am - 1:15pm
> Location: Shum Wai Yau Reading Room
> Attendants: Richie Lam, Jack Qiu, Jeromy Yu, Johnny Cheung, Haggen So
> Minutes: taken by Haggen
> 1. Introduction of Creative Commons by Haggen and Jack including
> different business models using NC and lower quality formats. The
> group also exchanged view on the balance of copyright protection.
> 2. Richie explained two difficulties that the film archive faced –
> orphan films (where the copyright holder could not be found) and no
> archive ordinance in HK. Haggen would direct his concerns to Yahong Li
> and Alice Lee for professional advice.
> 3. CCHK could consider the “Film Development Fund”. The Film Archive,
> on the other hand, as a service provided by the Leisure and Cultural
> Services Department, would not participate. CCHK could consider
> collaboration with the film makers of the Independent Short Film and
> Video Awards (IFVA). Ms. Teresa Kwong of the Hong Kong Arts Centre
> could be contacted for the IFVA details.
> 4. HK Film Archive could conduct a survey among both film copyright
> owners and potential users of these archives regarding the adoption of
> CC. The survey results could be then used to serve and structure
> future actions. Haggen would forward a softcopy of the RTHK
> questionnaire to Richie for his reference.
> 5. A way to motivate copyright owners ("parents" of orphan films) to
> participate. First, selected a small number of prominent old/classic
> films with known copyright owners and obtained their approval. Second,
> digitized them and even gave them some new features using digital
> technology (now many of these old films are not digitized yet).
> Finally, these films could then be promoted on a centralized online
> platform using CC, which ideally would attract the "parents" of
> orphaned films to come out and release their classic works through CC,
> for the additional features or simply for the digitization of the
> films themselves.
> 6. Jeromy Yu and Johnny Cheung presented the photo donation from
> German Federal Archive to Wikimedia and how HK Film Archive and
> Wikipedia could have common interests.
> 7. Attendants would keep in contact and seek further opportunities for
> collaboration. In putting any proposal onwards, copyright matters and
> concerns should be well considered.
