When you are in your own country, you know your limits about what to say or not. This is valid for conferences, interviews, etc...

The thing is, when you are going to a foreign country, you may not know how is the freedom of speech there, so, it may become quite dangerous if you want to speak something about the country that is hosting the event.

I am going to be giving a talk in Hong Kong on hacking/security topic in a near future. I need to know what would happen if I say that China is a source of lot of the problems that I see...

Would I be in jail right after the talk? Would I be prosecuted?

I know that Hong Kong have different laws than the China itself, but it is definitely a good question, specially for me...;)

Also, if you know of a country that I would also find these kind of problems, please let me know.
