A “Copyright Notice” is a short FAQ document prepared by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) to provide basic information to the public on specific topics of copyright law.
A Copyright Notice provides impartial basic information on specific topics under copyright law. It is aimed at increasing the public’s awareness of copyright-related issues in order that members of the public may be in a better position to make an informed decision on copyright-related issues.
A Copyright Notice does not have any legally binding effect and should not be taken as a substitute for, or addition to, any piece of statutory legislation or legal case.
A Copyright Notice is also not intended to deal with specific legal disputes. It should not be relied upon as legal advice. If you encounter copyright-related issues in a particular scenario, it is highly recommended that you seek professional legal advice from a lawyer which is tailored to your circumstances.
Accordingly, it would be prudent to consult a lawyer. In this regard, you may wish to sign up for an IP Legal Clinic held at IP101 (IPOS’s Customer Service Centre). This is a reimbursable service (you can claim a portion or the entirety of the legal fees from IPOS) performed by private law firms where you can seek a one-off consultation with the lawyers on IP dispute matters. These one-to-one sessions are strictly confidential and are usually conducted on Thursday mornings. You may find out more about the legal clinics and make an appointment by clicking here.
Alternatively, you may wish to consider selecting a law firm from the directory of IP service providers by clicking here.
Copyright Notices will be published on this web-page and will be reviewed regularly to ensure they remain relevant.
Copyright Notices will be clearly marked with the date of issue, as well as the date of any subsequent updates.
