  2. Hong Kong's existing Copyright Ordinance came into effect on June 27, 1997 and has been amended for many times to put it beyond doubt that any person who knowingly possesses an infringing copy of a copyright work for the purpose of, in the course of, or in connection with trade or business will commit a criminal offence, regardless of whether the business is involved in dealing in the infringing copies. Both management and the appointer concerned can be liable.
