Right now, Hong Kong is in the process of reviewing and proposing changes to its copyright law, and has put out a public call for consultation. OTW Legal will be submitting a comment in response to this request, recommending that Hong Kong's copyright law be made more flexible to allow more freedom for fans to create and share fanworks.
Get ready: International Fanworks Day is only one month away! International Fanworks Day, or IFD, was founded in 2014 by the OTW. It’s a celebration of all types of fanworks, and it’s held annually on February 15. This year we're celebrating the 8th annual IFD!
