Abstract

Intellectual property rights in Singapore are governed by separate statutes as well as the common law. While there are instances where cumulative protection under more than one intellectual property regime is either expressly acknowledged or restricted, there are other situations which are not so dealt with. This article examines one such situation, viz, how it may be possible to acquire both copyright as well as trade marks protection, and the consequences of such cumulative protection.
