29 August 2019

With effect from 7 August 2019, businesses and creators who opt for mediation with the World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center (“WIPO Center”) to resolve copyright disputes in Singapore may enjoy reduced rates. Driven by the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (“IPOS”), in a strategic collaboration with WIPO Center, this initiative will enable stakeholders in the copyright and creative industries to gain greater access to more efficient and cost-effective routes to resolve their copyright disputes, including those relating to collective management and orphan works.

Reduced rates for mediation at the WIPO Center are already available to parties with an existing dispute before IPOS involving patents, registered designs and trademarks.
