Guides
- Always remember the full exact name of the Act and Section. At least 3 questions will have questions asking about definitions. If you cant remember, try to recall funny things you did. They like to give tricky questions asking about what it stands for, and usually giving look-a-like answers.
- Section A consists of 10 MCQs (2 marks each). Section B consists of 3 structured questions, focusing on Copyright Principles, Defamation Suit, Contract Law. Section C consists of 2 case study, focusing on Computer Misuse Act.
- Be clear of who is the plaintiff and the defendant
- Know how to read case citations.
E.g.PP v Lim Zhao Ming Edwin (2002) (MAC 339/99/02 ss3, 5); means Magistrate Arrest Case, Volume 339, Page 99, Year of Decision 2002, Section 3 and Section 5)

Introductory to Law and Ethnics
Statues are law passed by Parliament, Case Law are decisions made by judges in cases.
Statues are more important source of law, Case Law are new law made on case to case basis.
Statues are faster way of updating the law to cope with rapid changes, Case Law may be reversed by Parliament.

Egoism is based on positive benefits to the person taking the action.
Utilitarianism is based on the positive benefits to the entire universe.
E.g. Laleh and Ladan case (Wed, 9 Jul 2003). Both are not suffering for life-threatening condition, though it changed the way they had to cope with lives for 29 years. Yet the doctor were guided by the twins' wishes.

Introductory to Singapore Legal System
Common Law inherited from English Law, is unwritten law and legal customs, created by judgements handed down by courts.

Criminal Law is a collection of rules that is of wrong doings against the State. State will prosecute the individual. Attorney General in his capacity as Public Prosecutor (PP) v Accused. The intention to commit a crime and actions were taken will be considered a criminal law.

Civil Law is a collection of rules, that governs the relationship among individuals. It is to give compensation to an individual who has been injured by another.
The person making the claim is the Plaintiff.
The person being served or against the claim made is the Defendant.

*Note: It is possible that a wrong can be both a civil wrong, as well as a crime capable of prosecution by State.
E.g. Mr Hai ambushed Mr Siow and punched him till he was unrecognisable. Mr Hai have committed a crime (causing hurt to Mr Siow), and civil wrong for causing personal injury to Mr Siow resulting from incurring medical expenses.

Depending on the nature and amount of the claim a suit is filed in the appropriate Court.

If the Defendant wishes to settle the claim and not dispute it, he can contact the Plaintiff or the Plaintiff's lawyer for an out-of-court settlement. If not, the Court will set a data to hear both sides and evaluate all evidence and proof. There can still be an out-of-court settlement at this point. Once a ruling is made it is enforceable. If the parties refuse to comply, the Court can issue a writ of seizure and sale to recover the assets and sell them to recover his compensation.

Hierarchy of Singapore Courts
Magistrate Court < District Court < High Court < Court of Appeal

The term "jurisdiction" (the power to hear cases) is dependent on the damages of each case.
For Civil Cases
Subordinate Courts: Magistrate Court - (≤ $60,000)
Subordinate Courts: District Court - (> $60,000 but ≤ $250,000)
Supreme Courts:      High Court - (> $250,000)
Supreme Courts:      Court of Appeal

For Criminal Cases - begins from Magistrate Court regardless of offences
*Note: It is only possible to retrial the case at the superseding court, should the decision stand be of disagreement. E.g. The retrial of case at District Court will be at High Court, if the decision stand is disagreed.

Good Mitigating factors: first offence submission, community service, plea of guilt at earliest.
Poor Mitigating factors: ignorance of law, sole-bread winner theory, intoxication.

The advent of the internet has created numerous possibilities for cybercrime, an example of which is cyberstalking. In the case of Lim Siong Khee v Public Prosecutor [2001] 2 SLR 342, the accused gained access to the victim's e-mail account after correctly guessing her password. He then circulated dishonourable e-mails about the victim to her friends and colleagues, as well as stalked her with the use of information that he had retrieved from reading her e-mails. The accused began also to harass a friend of the victim after discovering that she had encouraged the victim to file a police report against him. He was convicted under s 3(1) of the Computer Misuse Act (Cap 50A) and sentenced to five months' imprisonment.
This was the first case of a conviction on the basis of unauthorised access to an
e-mail account.
Section 3(1) states:
Any person who knowingly causes a computer to perform any function for the purpose of securing access without authority to any program or data held in any computer shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $5,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 2 years or both and, in the case of a second or subsequent conviction, to a fine not exceeding $10,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 years or both.
This Act accords some protection from electronic harassment, however, it is under the guise of gaining access to a person's e-mail account without their permission. Again there is no specific reference to the act of 'stalking'.

Trademark Law, Passing Off and Domain Names
The Law of Passing Off, Plaintiff must establish goodwill in the business. Defendant misrepresent to the public leading the public to believe that its goods are those of the plaintiff. Plaintiff must show that he suffered or likely to suffer damages

Goodwill is the benefit and advantage of the good name, reputation, and connection of a business. It is the attractive force which brings in the sales and the power to attract customers to business. These are determined by the Advertisement, Good Service, and Pricing Policy.

Misrepresentation by the defendant, must cause confusion to the public.
E.g. Ritz Carlton Millenia Hotel, and Millennium Hotel.

Damages must be valid. If there was no confusion to public, there will be NO damage. Surveys are needed to prove for damages, either market surveying companies or Asia Market Intelligence Pte Ltd.

Trade Marks Act (Cap 332)
Section 2(1) of Trade Marks Act, defines any sign that
- includes any letter, word, name, signature, numeral, device, brand, heading, label, ticket, shape, colour.
- able to be represented graphically.
- able to distinguish goods or services by person A from person B.

To register a TM,
- must be a sign, capable of distinguishing goods/services of trader
- must not be devoid of any distinctive character.
- must not be descriptive of the quality (e.g. super, salty, best)
- must not be a generic word (e.g. salt)

Trademark rights last for a period of 5 years (renewal possible). Trademark are classified under a specific table of classification of goods. (e.g. Class 32 - beers; non-alcoholic drinks, aerated water, Class 33 - alcoholic drinks except beers)

Contract Law
Contracts can be oral or in writing or both. Offer, Acceptance, Consideration, Intention to create legal relations must be present for a contract.

Offer
An offer is an expression made by one party "offeror" to another party "offeree" communicating the willingness to perform a promise. Offers can be made in writing, orally, or by conduct. It must be distinguished with an 'invitation to treat'.

Invitation to Treat
An invitation to treat is not an offer. Invitation to treat is invitation to commence negotiations. E.g. Advertisements, catalogues and price-lists.

Mr Chua operated a self-service shop. A customer would choose the articles he wished to buy, placed them in a basket and bring them to the cashier.
In Court, Invitation to treat - display of goods with prices. Offer - when the customer picks up the goods. Acceptance - When cashier rings the cash register.

However it is also possible to terminate an offer by, Revocation, Withdrawal, Counter-offer, Lapse of time.

Acceptance
A communication to the offeror that he accepts the offers unconditionally. It can be done in writing, orally or by conduct. Acceptance must conform to the prescribed method.

*Note: General rule: Acceptance is complete when it is received, not when it is sent.

However there are 3 exceptions to the general rule,
- Parties agree to waive communication
- Parties agree that "silence means consent"
- Parties agree that postal rule applies.

*Note: Postal rule applies to Electronic Transaction Act (Cap 88), including emails. Postal rules states 'acceptance is at the point when letter is sent'. Online transaction is when the time and place of dispatch and receipt occurs.

Consideration
Consideration is the price or compensation for the promise given by one party to the other. There is a distinction between "adequate" and "sufficient" to convey two basic principles. Law will not query the adequacy of the consideration of the bargain. All consideration must be of value.

Intention to Create Legal Relations
Social and domestic arrangements lack the necessary intention to form a contract, though three other factors are present. E.g. A lady promises man to have dinner with him. The lady later cancels it. The man can't sue the lady. Law views it as lacking intention to create legal relations.

Therefore "be bound" must be present that both parties intend to promise the legal consequences. Parties will usually prepare "terms and conditions" in the contract.

How to discharge a contract
- Performance (buy computer, computer is delivered)
- Agreement (buy computer and terminate within 3 days, third day the contract ends)
- Breach (buy computer to be delivered on Monday, but delivered on Wednesday)
- Frustration (buy computer, but the delivery truck was swept away by typhoon)

Benefits of a written contract
- Enforceable in a Court of Law
- Written record of the intention of parties
- Avoid disputes and misunderstanding
- Facilitate dispute resolution

Copyright Law
It is a legally enforceable intellectual property right. The person who owns the copyright has the right to stop others from copying his work. Copyright Act (Cap 63) covers literacy work, dramatic work, musical work, artistic work. Different copyright can co-exist in one particular product. (E.g. lyrics of the song (literary), music (musical), design of music album (artistic)). The copyright material must be original and be written, as a form of expression. Ideas cannot be copyrighted. Once it is written in material form, copyright exists. There's no need to mark (c) to indicate the work.

- perform the work to public
- broadcast the work, including cable programme

Civil remedies for Primary/Contributory Infringement
- Injunction
- Damages
- Delivery up of infringing copies

Secondary Infringement offences

- Justification or speaking the truth (honestly believes that the source is true)
- Fair comment (freedom of speech)
- Innocent publication and dissemination

Quel Genre de Système Est-ce
Monday, 13 February 2012
Now is the phase to Internship period, I'm still questioning myself everyday. Have I really made the right choice by entering polytechnic first or to go for National Service. Lately I've went to an animation company. They asked if "Anyone has gone for National Service?". I had to say "No". Yet I set my goal after ITE, that I must enter animation field one day. Sometimes I don't know how far my passion can drive me.

I did like to animate. I appreciate animation and like animation. Yet not to the extent of everyday piled up with task that I can't polish my animation. Animation can't be evaluated by self but others, if others understand then you did right partially. The other half is whether they know that it is logically animated. There's always a question, "How do you know that the changes that you made is right?". Theoretically there's no line to draw what's good and best animation; not to count those that doesn't have principles.

Then again I wonder are they trying to push everything that we can learn as much before we leave? Everyone knows Physics, when the load of the see-saw is heavy the other will be lighter to counterweight it. If both sides are equally heavy, you get a broken plank. That's just it. Some saying as "Don't chew more than what you can bite.". You know the limit yet you are unaware. That's what? That's not trying to understand the client needs.

You said that we aren't the guinea pigs of the crowd. That's more like avoiding the fact to prevent any more incidents to happen psychologically. Nothing mentioned doesn't mean problem solved. We feel it, we know it and we hope something is done.

Séjour Affamé de Séjour Idiot
Saturday, 8 October 2011
Most of you would have knew about Steve Jobs's death. I was reading the article in Guardian. One sentence that struck me was the quote from him.
"For something this complicated, it's really hard to design products by focus groups," he once said. "A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them."
I've to agree to this phrase. Most of the time I see people are just blinded but their peers, not knowing where they are or who they are. Eventually it's just sheeps following sheeps blindly. They need to know that every each of them has its potential.

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels
The ones who see things differently — they're not so fond of rules
You can quote them, disagree with them,
but the only thing you can't do is ignore them
We don't get a chance to do.. too many things,
This is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know?
And we've all chosen to do this with our lives
So it better be damn good and it better be worth it.

No one wants to die
Even people who want to go to Heaven don't wanna die to get there
Death is what we share
Death is life's one best invention
Clears out all the old
to make way for the new
And right now the new is you and you and you
So stay hungry, stay foolish, stay true

Don't let the noise of other's drown your inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow your heart
We've all chosen to do this with our lives
So it better be damn good and and it better be worth it.

No one wants to die
Even people who want to go to heaven don't wanna die to get there
Death is what we share
Death is life's one best invention
It clears out all the old
to make way for the new
And right now the new is you and you and you
So stay hungry, stay foolish, stay true

One more thing...
Being the richest man on my death bed
Don't mean a thing
but going to bed at night saying we've done
Something wonderful...
Something beautiful
That's what matters
That's what matters

No one wants to die
Even those who want to go to heaven don't wanna die to get there
Death is what we share
Death is life's one best invention
It clears out all the old
to make way for the new
And right now the new is you and you and you
So stay hungry, stay foolish, stay true

Planification Pour SIGGRAPH ASIA 2011
Wednesday, 14 September 2011
I will be going over to Hong Kong during December, for the SIGGRAPH ASIA 2011. SIGGRAPH stands for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques. Each year there will be two conferences held, in the west and the east. It's one of the major conference for us, as animation students. Well but it isn't all just about animation. It is a showcase for people in various fields. In 2009, the conference attracted over 11,000 artists, research scientists, gaming experts and developers, filmmakers, and academics from around the world. This includes visualisation and imaging techniques, for example the next generation of fMRI. Did you know that the first SIGGRAPH ASIA in 2008 was held in Singapore?

I've settled my air tickets. I will be departing on 9th December, and staying there for 11 days. SIGGRAPH ASIA 2011 will be held from 12th December to 15th December 2011. I'm not settled with the accomodation yet. International volunteers will be staying at Hong Kong Hostel. Which I think it's a reasonable and affordable place. Where to find a package for 7 nights that's just HKD4000? It includes laundry, MTR cards and Internet services. The cheapest hotel I can get was at Empire Hotel, which is HKD1120 per night. (Note: It's in Wan Chai, Central. So it's higher than hotels in Tsim Sha Tsui.) Lately did I found out that my friends who were volunteering for a full-time, didn't had lodging grant. So it's like on the same boat.

I've contacted Disneyland HK as well! Sadly there isn't any free tickets for me, but rather some gifts instead. I noticed the rates as well, they were cheaper for Hong Kong citizens. Anyone with Hong Kong nationality, can you buy the tickets for us? :D Singapore should actually implement this marketing plan for the Universal Studios Singapore. Why should we pay the same as the tourist? It's because fairness is within our pledge?

My works for the Autodesk IIko Challenge was also been selected as the finalist. However they have yet to tell me the details of the rewards. It is suppose to have free air tickets and covered accomodation throughout the trip in Hong Kong. Though I can't use the tickets, it's not within my working schedule. Hopefully Autodesk Singapore, could give a reply soon.

Michelle is love. Hugs are unforgettable. Walks are traces. Memories are unfadable. The gap between each fingers are promises that I have held for you. What had left for me are roots that grow inside my heart. Awaiting for the seed to blossom and grows into dedicated petals, just like you.
