SG Copyright Act to come into force

The Act will strengthen the rights of creators and performers.

The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore and the Ministry of Law have jointly announced the promulgation of the new Copyright Act on 21 November.

Passed in Parliament in September, the Act enhances Singapore's copyright regime through its updated provisions, which factor in technological developments that have impacted how content is created, distributed, accessed and used.

New rights and remedies have also been put in place to reward and recognise the creative efforts and contributions of creators and performers, enabling them to get more exposure and more opportunities to commercialise their works.

Beyond supporting creators and performers, the Act also contains new exceptions to copyright owners' rights, known as "permitted uses," to ensure copyright works are reasonably available for use by the general public. These uses include computational data analysis and educational purposes.
