Forum on Changes to the Copyright Law in Singapore for Blocking Websites

The Internet Society (Singapore Chapter) hosted this Forum and Webcast on proposed changes to the Copyright law of Singapore, to collect feedback for the Ministry of Law’s Public Consultation. You can watch the presentations below on the changes, concerns, as well as research on piracy in Singapore.

Singapore copyright owners could find it easier to get court orders to block websites which infringe their copyright material end 2014, if proposed changes to the Copyright Act are passed as measures to act against pirate sites. But many questions remain: How easy will it be to get a site blocked? Should it be so easy? What can wrongly blocked (innocent) sites do? Will site blocking actually work?
