A campaign video for Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Kaohsiung mayoral candidate Han Kuo-yu (韓國瑜) used footage and lines from a short film made by the National Cheng Kung University student association in 2014 without permission, a former association member said.

The video, made by a supporter of Han and titled Han Kuo-yu: Help Me Go Home (韓國瑜─幫我回家), was uploaded on YouTube on Friday last week and has since been viewed 600,000 times.

It tells the story of a man working in Taipei wanting to go home to Kaohsiung to vote in next month’s nine-in-one elections.

The supporter said in a statement on their YouTube account that they made the video because Han has limited campaign funds.    [FULL  STORY]
