Taking the Uncertainty out of Defamation Law - Much Ado about Meaning
Wadeley, Peter  •  [2005] Sing JLS 373 (Dec)
Defamation law is complex and requires the parties to be very clear about their strategy from day one of the action, especially in relation to the 'meaning' of the allegedly defamatory words. The meaning of the words determine, amongst other things, the extent that discovery must be made and the range of evidence that can be put forward by the parties. However, there is often confusion over the meaning of the words, especially in relation to the justification and fair comment defences. As such, it is argued that in all defamation actions the court should make a compulsory ruling on meaning shortly after the close of pleadings.

Unconventional and Well-Known Trade Marks
Vaver, David  •  [2005] Sing JLS 1 (Jul)
This Paper considers two fields of trade mark law which have expanded in recent years. Unconventional trade marks involving sounds, smells and shapes have started appearing on trade mark registries in Europe and the United States. The owners of well-known marks like Coca-Cola, which has long been firmly protected against imitators and "free riders", have also not been content with the protection they receive under national laws and have managed apparently to secure even more advantages from national legislatures and internal fora. The United States - Singapore Free Trade Agreement of 2003 compelled Singapore to strengthen its trade mark laws to encompass these developments. This paper examines unconventional and well-known marks from a comparative, primarily European law, perspective. It argues that the expanded protection accorded to these marks is not self-evidently a good thing in public policy terms. It concludes that re-forming the law is not the same as reforming it.

Breach of Confidence, Downstream Losses, Gains and Remedies
Wei, George  •  [2005] Sing JLS 20 (Jul)
One of the tricky issues that has arisen rather frequently in recent years concerns attempts by intellectual property right owners to expand their rights and remedies so as to cover activities which are said to have been caused by the infringement but which lie downstream of the actual infringement. Are such activities within the scope of the exclusive rights conferred so as to enable the right owner to sue the individual carrying out the downstream activity? Alternatively, might the right owner litigate against the immediate infringer on the basis that his infringement was the "cause" of the downstream activity such as to support a claim for damages in respect of the downstream losses? This article starts with a brief discussion of the reach of process patents into downstream products and then moves into a detailed discussion of the position at common law under the action to protect confidential information.
