Cases, Materials and Commentary on Singapore Intellectual Property Law
the increasing importance of intellectual property rights in a 21st century
economy both domestically and globally, intellectual property laws in Singapore
have grown significantly in breadth and depth in the decades following the 1994
Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (“TRIPS
Agreement”) and the formation of the World Trade Organization. As a result, an
extensive body of case law has been developed both by the courts and in the
Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (“IPOS”).
Materials and Commentary on Singapore Intellectual Property Law is the first
book of its kind on the subject. The authors have curated extracts from both
legislation and cases before the courts and IPOS to trace and explain
the development and current state of intellectual property law in Singapore, as
well as to offer a
comprehensive summary of the courts’ approach on important aspects of a
field of law critical to the future development of Singapore and its economy.
Each intellectual property right
is dealt with in turn in a separate chapter, with particular focus on the Big
Three (patents, copyright and trade marks) but also treating the common law
actions for confidential information and passing off as well as the lesser
known rights such as designs. In addition, litigation and remedies are given
their own chapter
Materials and Commentary on Singapore Intellectual Property Law is designed to complement existing textbooks and provide
practitioners and students alike with an essential guide to intellectual
property law in Singapore.
