  1. EU Business Law and Civil Legal Systems [Module 3: EU Digital Intellectual Property Law]

    The first part of the module will be dedicated to the understanding of the EU IP system.

    The Treaty of Rome did not transfer competences between the Member States and the EU with regard to Intellectual Property (IP). However, the EU exercised them through harmonisation of trademarks, patents and designs laws, and thereafter by way of unification of those laws with the creation of Community/unitary industrial property rights. The competences granted to the EU of IP has not brought an end to the coexistence of Community rights and national rights.

    The second part focuses on the new IP legislation on “copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market” that governs digital and IT proprietary rights, which provides for rules to adapt certain exceptions and limitations to copyright and related rights to digital and cross-border environments. Specifically, the module will cover aspects of the new legislation that

    • establishes measures to facilitate certain licensing practices and the dissemination of out-of-commerce works and other subject matter, particularly, the online availability of audiovisual works on video-on-demand platforms.
    • regulates the use of content in the public domain
    • regulates the rights in publications, the use of works or other subject matter by online service providers storing and access to user-uploaded content
  2. [Webinar] Sustainable Financing and Emissions Control

    In 2021, Singapore unveiled the Singapore Green Plan 2030 which is a nationwide movement to advance Singapore’s national agenda on sustainable development and features five key pillars: City in Nature, Sustainable Living, Energy Reset, Green Economy and Resilient Future. This but sets out a broad overview of the intended achievements. Alongside this, separately or otherwise, a number of laws, regulations and laws have evolved considerably, in Singapore as well as globally.

    In the webinar, we provide a broad overview on the climate and sustainable development goals of Singapore with reference to the Singapore Green Plan and parallel developments, and delve deeper into some important focus areas of the Singapore Green Plan – including sustainable financing, emissions control and carbon tax, and the evolution of carbon trading. Sustainable financing is important to drive sustainable projects and the first segment would discuss the key sustainable finance instruments available, the principles used in financing (including the LMA Green Loan Principles and the Sustainability Linked Loan Principles) and some of the practical issues encountered in such sustainable financing transactions.

    As we move into the second segment, we focus on emissions control and explore the front-end and back-end manners in which to manage this, touching on carbon pricing and carbon trading. The segment will also broadly discuss carbon sinks, carbon tax and carbon credits and the impact on the various industries in relation to emissions control.
