IFRRO responds to the consultation on collective rights management in Singapore

The Ministry of Law and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) are conducting a public consultation on the Copyright Collective Rights Management Ecosystem in Singapore, as part of a broader review of the copyright legal framework in the country.

In its response to the consultation, IFRRO emphasises the importance of transparency and good governance for RROs. It also acknowledges the recognition in the consultation document of the relationship between more regulation and increased operating costs, and it refers to the instruments adopted by IFRRO and setting out the standards of service that rightholders and users can expect to receive when dealing with RROs.
