An Asian industry assembly which includes Facebook, Google, Apple, LinkedIn, and Twitter has notified that the technology companies may stop offering their services in Hong Kong. This is majorly due to the newly made laws intended to continue ahead with certain privacy change and doxxing laws.
The group, Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) has called Hong Kong’s legislative bodies to modify the proposed laws which could see them face unlawful investigations for sharing information online.
The amendments could potentially have an excessively broad interpretation whereby any innocent acts of sharing of information online may be deemed unlawful. Hence, a letter has been sent over the weekend where the companies jointly said they are concerned with the proposed law changes.
