Lim Biow Chuan on Copyright Bill

Moving ownership of copyright from the person who commissions a work to the creator of the work, unless there is written agreement to the contrary - this is a “major change” which could, for example, impact consumers who engage photographers or videographers for weddings or other social functions, said MP Lim Biow Chuan. In Parliament on Monday (Sep 13), he asked the Government to run an awareness campaign, provide a standard template of the written agreement and consider allowing oral agreement as well. He also asked how authorities intend to prevent overseas purchases of set-top boxes that can be used to stream illegal content.
