Edwin Tong on Copyright Bill

The laws will be strengthened to benefit creators and rights owners, users and society, as well as Singapore's copyright ecosystem, said Second Minister for Law Edwin Tong. Highlighting the key changes in Parliament on Monday (Sep 13), he said one proposal is a new right for authors and performers to be identified to accord them due recognition for their creative works and make them "default owners", subject to contract. Another proposed change will increase the scope of permitted use of works and protected forms, such as Internet materials for educational purposes. The Copyright Bill also seeks to create a class licensing scheme that sets minimum standards for collective management organisations.
