Copyright for Educators


I attended the above seminar organised by Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) this afternoon. Frankly, most of the information shared by Mr Kelvin Sum was familiar. Stuff like ‘10% allowance in copying’, ‘Playing movies and music in school hall is OK and ‘Educators are STILL liable for IP infringement’ rang a bell in most of the audience.

Mr Kelvin Sum did a great seminar. Yet the truth remains – The grey areas in Intellectual Property (IP) still lurk within the education scene. It seems that MOE needs to provide more IP knowledge and support to teachers so we are able to teach without worrying too much over IP infringement etc.

Nonetheless I am glad to bring back a couple of great links.
