Copyright Resources

NSPs provide Internet access services and facilities for communication across networks, as well as for storage. As such, they are the repository and access point for a high volume of copyright works. Recognising the need to limit the liability of NSPs for infringement committed by their users, the Copyright Act provides NSPs with limited legal liability in copyright infringement suits, subject to the NSP meeting certain stipulated conditions. One of these conditions is that the NSP must designate a representative to receive any notice of infringement served by copyright owners.

 

Designated Representative

To enjoy the limited liability for the infringement of copyright content in the storage of materials or in linking users to materials made available on the Internet, an NSP must designate a representative to receive any notice of infringement served by copyright owners.

All designated representatives together with prescribed information thereof must be notified to IPOS and be listed in the  PDF iconNSPeRegister and maintained by IPOS. To notify IPOS of the designated representative, the relevant NSP Form (found below on the page) has to be completed and submitted here. The administrative fee of $32 will apply.

You can expect to receive payment instructions via email within 3 working days after we receive your form submission.

For any queries relating to the submission of NSP form, you may contact us at ipos_enquiry@ipos.gov.sg and attention to NSP Secretariat or contact us at our Customer Enquiry Hotline (65) 6339 8616.
