A group of global tech giants including Apple, Google, and X said Wednesday an open internet was “fundamental” for Hong Kong to become an international hub, after the city’s appeals court banned a pro-democracy protest song.

“We believe that a free and open internet is fundamental to the city’s ambitions to become an international technology and innovation hub,” said Jeff Paine, the managing director of the Asia Internet Coalition, adding that they were “assessing the implications” of the court’s decision.
