Abstract: 陳冠希自拍謝罪騷 2008-02-05
Singer and actor Edison Chen Koon-hei announced yesterday he is taking indefinite retirement from the entertainment industry.
Chen was speaking publicly for the first time since the scandal over sexually explicit photos which appeared on the internet. "I admit most of the photos being circulated on the internet were taken by me," said Chen, 27. "These photos are very private. They have not been shown to people and were not intended to be shown to anyone." …
Hong Kong University law professor Eric Cheung Tat-ming said Chen will not be liable for mishandling the photos.
He could also apply for an injunction to bar people from uploading, duplicating, displaying and distributing the photos and to seek damages at a civil court.
Thirty percent thought Chen was "sincere and had guts," however an equal number thought he was "pretending to be miserable to gain sympathy." Twenty-one percent said they will forgive and continue to support him; 9 percent thought Chen is quitting because he plans to establish himself in Hollywood; and 6 percent thought he deserved to be blamed and should not be forgiven.

All those are believed to be involved in secondary distribution of the pictures which started appearing a week ago. Although Internet service providers quickly removed Web pages with the images, pics were swiftly reposted on other sites and blogs. Newspapers and magazines have since reprinted many of the images, albeit with careful shading.

People who had only transferred the obscene picture files to friends had not violated the law, but those who transferred them to the public - for example via internet web pages - were breaking the law, said Wong.
He said there were three clauses relating to the possession of obscene material that constitute a violation of the law, namely: publishing obscene material; possession for publishing; and inserting obscene material for publishing. He also maintained the police had not used excessive manpower as the whole case had been handled by 19 men from the Commercial Crime Bureau.
