The New Copyright Act – In force from 21 November 2021 in Singapore

A raft of changes to the copyright regime have been introduced on 21 November 2021 with the new Copyright Act 2021 coming into force.

The changes represent a major overhaul of the old Copyright Act, with the reordering and rewriting of the provisions for better clarity; adoption of a principle-based formulation so the law can better adapt to technological changes; and the introduction of new rights and exceptions to better balance between the rights of creators, copyright owners and users.
