The Copyright Tribunal is a quasi-judicial body established under the Copyright Ordinance (Cap. 528) to provide a forum for resolving disputes in relation to the use or licensing of copyright materials. On 1 May 2017, the new Copyright Tribunal Rules (Cap. 528D) (the “Tribunal Rules”) came into effect. The main objectives of the Tribunal Rules include: promoting use of alternative dispute resolution, exercising active case management, standardizing procedures and application forms for all types of applications/references before the Copyright Tribunal, and empowering a single member of the Tribunal to exercise certain adjudication powers. If there are disputes that fall within the jurisdiction of the Copyright Tribunal, the Tribunal Rules should be considered and complied with.
