Gov’t launches consultation on AI Copyright Law reform

It will address issues such as copyright protection for AI-generated works and infringement liability.

The government has initiated a two-month public consultation aimed at enhancing the Copyright Ordinance (CO) to address developments in artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

The consultation addresses issues such as copyright protection for AI-generated works, liability for copyright infringement, potential exceptions, and related concerns. It aims to align Hong Kong's copyright regime with regional intellectual property objectives outlined in the National 14th Five-Year Plan.

The Commerce and Economic Development Bureau emphasised the need for updates to support innovation, creativity, and investment whilst ensuring current CO provisions cover AI-generated works. It conducted a comprehensive review of local legislation, international practices, and market dynamics in preparing the consultation.

The consultation includes a public forum on 2 August and submissions are accepted via email, fax, or post until 8 September.
