Forum: Creators must still abide by data protection law and seek consent

Job Interview Conversation

The Visual, Audio, Creative Content Professionals Association (Singapore) (Vicpa) would like to share its perspectives on the amendments to the Copyright Act (Law to give photographers rights to their work by default, Sept 14).

With the amendments to the Act, creators of selected materials, including wedding photography, will be the default first owners of copyright of these copyrighted materials.

However, this does not translate to creators unilaterally using the visuals without the consent of clients.
