A Hong Kong court has found a computer technician guilty of "copying and distributing" material which he found on the laptop of Chinese-Canadian actor Edison Chen. The material was intimate photographs of Mr. Chen and various well-known actresses. Sze Ho-chun took the material from the laptop when Mr. Chen dropped it off for repair in 2006. Later the material made its way to the Internet. As a result, Mr. Chen says he has received death threats; both he and several of the actresses have taken time off from filmmaking.
