Private prosecution of intellectual property rights infringements in Singapore

Jamil Ddamulira Mujuzi

Keywords: private prosecution; Singapore; intellectual property; copyright; patents; locus standi; abuse

Case law from Singapore shows that one of the ways in which intellectual property rights holders have protected their rights is through private prosecutions. This is the case although the relevant pieces of legislation on patents, copyright and trade marks are silent on the issue of private prosecutions. The question of who is entitled to institute a private prosecution in intellectual property rights infringements remains unclear to some people. The purpose of this article is to discuss the issues of locus standi to institute a private prosecution in intellectual property cases and the measures to minimize abusing the right to institute a private prosecution.
