New: Law of Trade Marks in Singapore, Fourth Edition

Content updates

Law of Trade Marks in Singapore, Fourth edition, has been substantially updated to accommodate new cases and legislative developments over the past seven years since the third edition.

Since the well received third edition of this work there have been significant legislative developments including the revamping of the Geographical Indications Act that came into force in 2019 after the ratification by the European Parliament pursuant to the European Union-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (EUSFTA).

This Fourth Edition of the Law of Trademarks in Singapore also includes a new chapter examining the relationship between trade marks and competition law and how the exploitation of trade mark rights can be anti-competitive.

 A number of new cases are considered in detail, such as Burberry Ltd v Megastar Shipping Pte Ltd - the Court of Appeal (CA) which explains the terms “import” and “trade mark use” in the Trade Marks Act (TMA), and Singsung Pte Ltd v LG26 Electronics Pte Ltd - CA which decided that, as a matter of principle and conceptual clarity, the issue of whether a mark is distinctive of the plaintiff’s goods or services (in the sense that it is capable of acting as a badge of trade origin) is to be considered in the context of the inquiry on misrepresentation.
