Copyright law today covers far more than its original subject matter of books, drama, music and art. For example, it can now be used to protect computer programs or online games, and those who invest in the making of films, sound recordings, broadcasts and cable programmes.

 

Singapore’s new and updated Copyright Act 2021, which comes more than 30 years after the passage of the Copyright Act 1987, protects a wide range of stakeholders. These include owners of copyright, authors (even after their work has been sold) and performers (to stop unauthorised streaming of live performances). To ensure a balanced system, it provides for users an extensive list of permitted uses of others’ copyright works and performances.

 

Modern Law of Copyright in Singapore is a detailed and comprehensive guide to this complex and nuanced area of the law. It takes readers through the new structure of the Act and sheds light on the courts’ approach to interpretation and application by reviewing earlier case law and highlighting underlying objectives of copyright law.

 

Copyright law is of central importance to the healthy development of a vibrant and creative society – this book is highly recommended to practitioners, students and to anyone who is interested in learning about how copyright law protects the legitimate interests of rights owners while benefitting society as a whole.

    From the Foreword

    “All significant judgments of the Singapore courts dealing with copyright are covered. … [C]ommentary on local developments is supplemented by reference to case law from other major jurisdictions, in particular England and Australia. There is also reference to useful articles where it is appropriate to provide wider context. Emerging issues, such as artificial intelligence, are touched on. … This book is now the first port of call for any law student and legal practitioner wanting to know the Singapore position on any copyright issue.” - Dedar Singh Gill - The Honourable Judge of the High Court
