Hong Kong enlists kids in p2p monitoring
p2pnet caught this story from the South China Morning Post. The Hong Kong Customs’ Intellectual Property Investigation Bureau has released results from its training program for youth, which teaches them how to monitor and report illegal internet transfer files. The program aims to expand to a cadre of 200,000 youth.
” ‘Initially we used 700 cadets from the Civil Aid Service for a
three-month period,’ [Bureau Senior Superintendent] said. ‘In that time we received over 800
reports of people illegally uploading… We were then able to inform
the copyright holder and subsequently ask the website to remove the
illegal content. If only 700 youths brought us such good results in
three months, I think we will be very successful when the full 200,000
start helping us on July 19.”
