CANTO-POP king Jacky Cheung Hok-yau is seeing red after being faced with hundreds of distorted replicas of himself staring out from shop windows. ''I saw a street of shops filled with dolls of me. Not just me; other artists too,'' said the infuriated Cheung after coming across the fat, thin and bloated miniature models. ''Apparently Hong Kong has no laws to protect [artists]. ''I had thought I would have been able to take legal action, but I discovered there was nothing I could do. ''We are not adequately protected . . . It is unfair that other people are allowed to exploit us.'' The pop star denied recent rumours he had plans to bring out his own line of Jacky Cheung dolls. ''There are no such plans,'' he said. He also dismissed press reports that his brother had blackmailed him for $5 million. ''If my brother asks for a loan, that is not a threat,'' he said. Lawyer Joseph Li said Cheung could only take them to court if the dolls or products had been distorted. He said only a protection law or an unfair trading law - both absent in the territory - could protect the interests of artists.
