Changes of copyright law in Singapore

Singapore Ministry of Law has decided to change copyright law in order to boost the creative industry. Proposed changes will strengthen creators’ right to attribution to their work, even if the work is not in their ownership anymore. Moreover, the changes proposed are to include a default ownership of commissioned works. Also enforcement is more strict to prevent illegal streaming. Various criminal and civil sanctions can be imposed to anyone who enable copyright violations. Finally, there are wider exceptions for education, analysis, and data mining.
