BIP Asia Forum


FADE IN.

INT. BIP ASIA FORUM - DAY

A big conference venue. About 2000 GUESTS. Sitting among the audience, PETER stares at the stage backdrop.

PETER (V.O.)

I was one of the founding

members of the original

BIP Conference in

the 2000s. It was taken

over by TDC nine

years ago, as they

found it good. It has

become an annual Hong

Kong flagship event.

As other GUESTS join Peter, SOME take photos for them.

INT. EXHIBITION AREA - DAY

GENTLEMAN#1 (40s) bumps into Peter and shakes hands with him.

GENTLEMAN#1

We're talking about you.

IP trading was your vision!

Peter looks at gentleman#1.

PETER(V.O.)

I can't remember him. But

it's obvious he had a good

impression of me.

They chat and exchange name cards.

INT. SEMINAR ROOM - DAY

Entrance. Full house. A LADY (40s) sees and greets Peter.

LADY

You look great! Do you

do a lot of sports?

Peter nods.

INT. HALL - DAY

GUESTS sit around dozens of tables. A KEYNOTE SPEAKER delivers a luncheon speech. Peter listens and watches the powerpoints attentively.

PETER (V.O.)

As a lawyer, he has a

lot of business

development experience.

It's interesting to hear

his support of IP

trading.

INT. GENTS ROOM - DAY

GENTLEMAN#2 (60s) approaches Peter enthusiastically.

GENTLEMAN#2

The keynote speaker

talked about issues we

discussed yesterday.

Your creative concept

as to how to help IP

stakeholders should

work!

Peter nods.

PETER

It's an endorsement

of the White Paper

that I've in mind.

INT. BREAKOUT SESSION - DAY

Forum setting. A white slide: AIPPI. MODERATOR#1 (30s) and two SPEAKERS (30s) are on stage.

PETER (V.O.)

Their theme is on AI

and they discuss if

the inventor in the AI

context can be the

the machine.

SPEAKER#1

...The Hong Kong

Copyright Ordinance

has something on

that...someone who

makes the arrangement...

PETER (V.O.)

Yes, that's the right

analogy.

FLASHBACK

INT. WIPO CONFERENCE, STANFORD UNIVERSITY - DAY (1991)

Peter (36) sits among a few hundreds AUDIENCE. A PANEL of speakers are on stage. They speak in turns.

PETER (V.O.)

There's consensus that

for AI or computer-

generated works, the

person who makes the

necessary arrangements

should be treated as the

creator.

END FLASHBACK.

PETER (V.O.)

I therefore put that in

the Copyright Bill 1997.

Coffee break.

INT. BREAKOUT SESSION - DAY

MODERATOR#2 (20s) moderates four SPEAKERS (30-40s) on stage. Peter sits among the AUDIENCE.

PETER (V.O.)

They're all the young

and successful

gaming entrepreneurs.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.)(Cont'd)

What did he say?

"Esports"?

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.)

I only write and publish

digitally. It's good for

the mind. I compete

with myself, trying to

add value each time.

Peter then watches attentively the audio-visual aids.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Yes, he's really talking

about the "sports" that

I don't do. I find gaming

a waste of time. But,

because of the great

market demand, there's

a lot of money in esports.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.)(Cont'd)

My White Paper and

my short stories shouldn't

ignore the gaming market.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.)(Cont'd)

I know what I'll do. I've

updated myself a lot

about the business of

intellectual property.

The BIP Asia Forum

is really good!

EXT. ROAD - NIGHT

Wet. Some passers-by wear scarfs.

PETER (V.O.)

I must go swimming.

The sport is good for

my well-being. And

consistency is the

key.

Peter walks towards a swimming pool premises.

FADE OUT. The End
