Earlier today I received a comment on the blog
比大家「欣賞」, 唔係幾好 "
Thanks for your post highlighting your concerns. Firstly, everyone should read the disclaimer, where it is clearly stated that sources are referenced, we take no credit
for the artwork. Some readers are mislead into thinking this is our work, no it's not,
this is just a fansite. Also, this blog is non profit making, there are no advertisements and also there are no external links that I know of that bring you here either. (How did you get here? :) )
To further assure you, I have (in an email conversation dated 04/08/06) put forward the same concerns to siuhak. When asked if he could permit the continuation of this blog, he replied
"of course you can"
and seemed to be pleased of his increasing fanbase. I hope he continues to approve in 2008 and onwards.
On a lighter note, I post these with the intention of spreading his works to places where the magazine doesn't go (ie outside HK). I don't get the magazine myself until 3-4 days later than HK, and even then don't post them til weeks later in some cases. I can't see the existence of this blog diminishing the sales of the Touch magazine. On the contrary I've been told by a few readers they have started to purchase it for the column. Besides, die-hard siuhaks fans will never substitute a blog for his publications, and people too screwbag to buy the magazine and read this blog instead, would have only borrowed it from a friend anyway.
I just wanted to make my personal opinions clear. You are free to disagree :) I won't mind unless you are siuhak/'s management, cos then I'd have to remove the blog from public domain.
