HK governement recruits youth as informers in battle against internet piracy

The experience with the Red Guards, overzealous youth who handed in their peers to the communist authorities, if they manifested anything 'bourgeois' during the Cultural Revolution, is painfully fresh for many people in China. Now it seems that the Hong Kong government is inspired by something familiar; recruiting youths to root out online piracy. Bit scary.
