AbstractThis article reviews the current permitted acts under the Copyright Ordinance and their implications for Hong Kong. The discussion focuses on those permitted acts having a direct impact on two sectors the Hong Kong Government is most concerned with: education and the software industry. It shows that because of the limitations of the permitted acts, the Copyright Ordinance has failed to strike the right balance between the conflicting interests in these two sectors; rather, it favours the copyright owners. The article traces the cause of the imbalance to three main deficiencies in the Copyright Ordinance and proposes a solution to strike the right balance.
