The Copyright Ordinance currently in force in Hong Kong has come into effect since June 1997, which aimed to maintain a balance between the rights of copyright owners for adequate payment for the use of their works, and the rights of society as a whole to have access to ideas and information.
In the fight against the physical and internet piracy, HKRIA, in collaboration with IFPI Asian Regional Office and HK Customs & Excise Department, takes anti-piracy actions in order to protect the interests, creativity and efforts of the copyright owners as well as the rights of using Intellectual Property.
Useful readings can be found in the "Department of Justice" for Copyright Ordinance (Chapter 528) and "Intellectual Property Department" for Copyright in Hong Kong
