This case note examines and comments on I-Admin (Singapore) Pte Ltd v Hong Ying Ting [2020] SGCA 32; [2020] 1 S.L.R. 1130). In this case, the Singapore Court of Appeal put forward a modified test for breach of confidence, departing from the traditional three-step test in Coco v AN Clark (Engineers) Ltd [1968] F.S.R. 415; [1969] R.P.C. 41.
