Free the Data! Pitch to Hong Kong Open Data Day 2019

  1. 1. ATI recommendation 7 & 8: FREE THE DATA We have so few rights in Hong Kong are you happy to have this one taken away? SAY NO TO TRANSPARENCY TAXES
  2. 2. Finally becoming a law? ATI & Archives consultation ends 5th March kongs-proposed-freedom-information-law
  3. 3. The rise of FOI in HK
  4. 4. Recommendation 7 & 8: tl:dr: Has been free but now you are going to have to pay. And will be tiered. (archives will still be free though as people will notice)
  5. 5. Not discussed in proposal • No mention of waivers or public interest (education/research, NGOs, etc.) • Who owns copyright of content? Can people share requests? • Can LegCo members still request for free? Will they be getting spammed? • What about 1823 requests overlapping? • Can we still request under the code for free? • If isn’t about cost recovery – then is this a transparency tax?
  6. 6. How do we provide feedback? Need to send responses to Sub-committee secretary Ms Cathy Wan by fax, post or email. Address: 4/F, East Wing, Justice Place, 18 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong. Telephone: (852) 3918 4097/Fax: (852) 3918 4096 Email: What are the next steps?
  7. 7. Not much time: need online petition/autoforms sjjmyuaBd28ZJ3uTaWOOa2caVzbs0fReJU
