A Perspective on the Economic Torts
Lee, Eng Beng  •  [1996] Sing JLS 482 (Dec)
A unifying principle underlying the economic torts - interference with contract, conspiracy, intimidation and unlawful interference with trade or business - has yet to be authoritatively recognised by the courts. For this reason, the development of the underlying legal and policy bases of liability and non-liability with respect to these torts has been hindered to a considerable extent. The current boundaries of their operation are consequently also unduly restricted, and they co-exist somewhat uncomfortably with analogous and overlapping principles of liability in other areas of the law, principally equity. This article offers some suggestions as to the rationalisation and resolution of some of these issues and attempts to map what, in the writer's view, is the best way forward. In particular, it is submitted that a general principle of liability for intentionally inflected non-physical harm, subject to a sufficiently wide and pliable defence of justification, should be recognised by the common law.

The Overlap Between Literary Copyright and Artistic Copyright in Engineering Drawings
Ng-Loy, Wee Loon  •  [1996] Sing JLS 524 (Dec)
The dichotomy traditionally drawn in copyright law between literary works and artistic works has to be reviewed in the light of recent cases, from England and Singapore, holding that circuit diagrams and the like qualify as a literary work and as an artistic work. This article examines the implications arising from the overlap between literary copyright and artistic copyright in this area.

Working out the Presidency : No Passage of Rights - In defence of the Opinion of the Constitutional Tribunal
Chan, Sek Keong  •  [1996] Sing JLS 1 (Jul)
In 1994, a difference of opinion arose between the President and the Government on whether the President had the power, under Article 22H(1) of the Constitution, to veto a Bill to amend Article 22H(1). The Constitution was amended to establish a Tribunal to which any question as to the effect of a constitutional provision on any Bill could be referred for its opinion. In the first reference heard on 17 March 1995, the Tribunal advised that the President had no power under Article 22H(1) to veto a Bill to amend Article 22H(1) itself. The Tribunal's position as well as the case for the Government was strongly criticized in an article published in the December 1995 issue of this journal. This article is a reply to those criticisms.

Badges of Trade Revisited
Teo, Keang Sood  •  [1996] Sing JLS 43 (Jul)
This article looks at the question of trading in the Singapore and Malaysian contexts. The focus in on transactions in real property. It seeks to establish that, contrary to what has been argued, an isolated transaction in real property can amount to the carrying on of a trade or a business under the Singapore Income Tax Act. Reference is made to relevant Malaysian cases on the matter. This article further examines the factors which the Singapore and Malaysian courts (including the Income Tax Board of Review and Special Commissioners, as the case may be) take into consideration in determining whether a trade/business has been carried on. A proper assessment of these factors is most crucial so as to steer clear of the pitfalls of trading.
