Hong Kong: Intellectual Property Piracy and the Internet

Journal of Financial Crime

ISSN: 1359-0790

Publication date: 1 April 1998


It is to be expected that Hong Kong's population would take strongly to the Internet, if only because there are few competing attractions in the Special Administration Region. Local television is distinctly low‐brow and the great outdoors are poisonously polluted. According to the Office of the Telecommunications Authority (OFTA) there are presently about 300,000 Internet users in Hong Kong (population 6.2 million) and the volume of traffic has increased from 30 million minutes in April 1996 to 1.1 billion minutes in the corresponding month in 1997.
