On Thursday's Backchat, privacy laws. A video featuring celebrities Andy Hui and Jacqueline Wong filmed kissing inside a taxi has sparked a range of responses. Many companies, and even government agencies, have released adverts slyly alluding to the incident, and Andy Hui's tearful press conference. But its still not clear if anyone has broken the law - the taxi driver who filmed the couple, and then reportedly sold it to Apple Daily? The newspaper for posting the video online? Are such cameras allowed in any case? Should there be guidelines on filming inside taxis? Are the memes just a little cheeky, or bad taste exploitation of a marital crisis? After 9.20, how to restore Notre Dame in Paris.

On Tuesday's Backchat, sexual harassment in Hong Kong.The Secretary for Security says he wants to proceed quickly on a law to tackle 'upskirt' photo-taking and voyeuristic crime after the Court of Final Appeal ruled against the use of of the charge of 'obtaining access to a computer for criminal or dishonest gain' on smartphone related crimes. But he says it's first necessary for the Law Reform Commission to compete its consultation on such a law. Meanwhile there is trouble at the FCC over a an 'anti-harassment' policy, with claims by some members that it 'interferes with the freedom of speech that we take for granted as a fundamental value of the Club'. How do you identify and define sexual harassment? What sort of laws or policies are appropriate and how do you address the problem without threatening freedoms, or making over-general laws? Is there a vacuum in the law now, and if so what sort of message does it send? Are we taking the issue seriously here? Is harassment particularly acute in Hong Kong?
