IP (Criminal) Enforcement
(2 July 2015)
3 SILE CPD public points available

Copyright and trade mark laws in Singapore provide for both civil and criminal remedies against infringers. Criminal enforcement measures are particularly useful weapons against counterfeiting.

However, there is a dearth of information on criminal IP enforcement, particularly in relation to practical and procedural aspects. We have assembled a distinguished slate of speakers to share with participants their expertise and experience in a broad range of areas. Participants will first be treated to an overview of IP enforcement in Asia, with a focus on ASEAN. Thereafter, the speakers will delve into both the legal and procedural aspects of criminal enforcement in Singapore, including a discussion of investigative techniques encompassing computer forensics.
