- The Ministry of Law (“MinLaw”) and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (“IPOS”) conducted a public consultation on the draft Copyright Bill for the periof 5 February 2021 to 8 April 2021.
- At the close of the public consultation exercise, MinLaw and IPOS received 46 responses from stakeholders, including members of the public. Most respondents agreed that the draft bill was well-written and easier to understand than the existing Copyright Act. MinLaw and IPOS have considered all suggestions received and, where appropriate, incorporated the feedback into the Copyright Bill tabled for First Reading in Parliament on 6 July 2021.
- A summary of the key changes made in response to the feedback received can be found here. Changes arising from minor editorial suggestions have not been listed. As the clauses have since been renumbered, the corresponding clause numbers in the Copyright Bill have also been provided for easy referencing.
MinLaw and IPOS would like to thank all respondents for their feedback.
