SINGAPORE — Content creators and performers may soon have better copyright protections, while educators and data analysts could be granted more exceptions when using copyrighted material in their work under proposed changes to the Copyright Act.
The amendments, which the Ministry of Law (MinLaw) said seeks to strengthen the copyright regime in Singapore, were tabled in Parliament on Tuesday (July 6).
The proposed changes will ensure that the Copyright Act is up to date on how content is created, distributed and used, said MinLaw in a statement, adding that it has also sought to make the law more accessible by simplifying the language.
