HUCOM Inter-Institutional Task Force on Reprographic Rights Licensing
The Task Force was established by the Heads of Universities Committee (HUCOM) in June 2000 to look into reprographic rights licensing in UGC-funded institutions and, whenever necessary, to negotiate collectively with licensing bodies with regard to acquisition of the relevant licences. It comprises one representative from each of the eight UGC-funded institutions.
Joint University Librarians Advisory Committee ( JULAC )
JULAC, a committee of the Heads of Universities Committee (HUCOM), is a forum among the libraries of the eight UGC-funded institutions. JULAC has established a number of committees including a Copyright Committee. It was established in 2002 to monitor and address copyright law developments and issues in Hong Kong as they relate to the JULAC member libraries. It also seeks to facilitate greater awareness of copyright implications on information dissemination in support of teaching, learning, and research, such as through the formulation of position papers.
The Concern Group was established in March 2004 by educational organizations in Hong Kong to channel their collective views and concerns as a group about copyright issues to the Government, copyright owners, licensing bodies and other stakeholders so that the interest of the education sector could be well observed in the course of legislative changes. There are 26 educational organizations, including HKU, in the Concern Group as of August 2006.
