I discovered this recently when I was working on the project video. When ever we need some software to edit our work, the firs thing come to our mind is not purchasing the software but to download one on some certain website. There are some green software or free software for people to use, However, some times the software downloaded are a Pirated ones, which are supposed to be accessed only after paid. Not only software, many other intellectual properties are not respected online. Some of the individuals or even entities may infringe Intellectual property without being aware of it.
For example in the year 2013, one of the famous video sites in mainland China, todou, was sued to broadcast ‘ a bite of China’ with out permition of the right holder and was fined for 248,000.

Imagine that you are not allowed to work, have no cash, and are given only forty dollars’ worth of food every day (for three meals, not one). How long can you last?
Welcome to the typical everyday life of the 6,000 refugees and asylum seekers in Hong Kong, who are continuing to live in despair. Although among them some are ‘fake refugees’ who would eventually be deported, many fled their homes because of torture or religious persecution, and are desperately in need for shelter. Despite international criticism towards our government’s treatment on them, the problem of refugees’ rights remains unsolved.

UK is falling behind other European countries on judicial diversity where they have more pragmatically implemented gender equality within the judiciary. A Council of Europe report stated that nearly 80% of professional, full-time judges in England, Wales and Scotland were still male. It is not only the issue of gender inequality but that of diversity since white male bench does not clearly represent the general population in the UK.

What does adverse possession mean in Hong Kong?
Adverse possession can happen when a owner has abandoned his property and another person (referred as squatter) has possessed the property for a certain period of time. Under the Limitation Ordinance (Cap 347), the time period is 60 years for government land and 12 years for other lands.

Hong Kong, a city well-known for its expensive cost, is also a place where people can hardly afford a flat. Hong Kong is the first runner-up in the world’s most unaffordable housing market, with a median home price almost 15 times gross annual median household income. (White, 2014) (Demograhia, 2014) Therefore, the government has been working hard in discovering lands for land auction or public housing estates to obtain lower equilibrium prices for buyers.

“Red Bull gives you wings.” It is a famous slogan from the advertisement of the energy drink giant, Red Bull. Although the slogan- gives you wings is just a metaphor of boosting up the consumer’s energy but not literally giving them the wings, Red Bull’s advertisement was found to be a false advertising and needed to compensate $13 million dollars to the customers.
