Suicide and Life Policies - A Fresh Perspective
Lee Kiat Seng  •  [1996] Sing JLS 79 (Jul)
Although there are no reported local decisions considering the effect that an assured's suicide has on a claim under his life policy, the prevailing assumption is the local position is no different from the English position prior to the Suicide Act 1961 (which resulted in suicide no longer being an offence in England). According to this approach, the claim would be barred on a contractual level because the assured cannot be the author of his own loss, and on a broader level, because the law will not allow him to benefit from his own criminal acts. This paper examines the question of whether this approach can be applied in toto in Singapore. It will be argued that the Beresford approach may not be appropriate in the local legislative framework and cultural background.

Locus Standi of Company Directors to Petition for Companies winding Up
Arjunan, Krishnan  •  [1996] Sing JLS 111 (Jul)
Winding up proceedings have the potential to expose the company to ultimate dissolution. Thus, the issue of locus standi to petition the court for a winding up order assumes some importance. Under section 217()(a) of the Malaysian Companies Act 1965, the 'company' has standing to petition the court. However, under article 73 of Table A of the Act, the directors are delegated the management power. The question then arises as to whether the management power encompasses the power to petition the court for a winding up without a resolution of the members in general meeting. There appears to be a serious conflict of judicial opinion on the issue. This article traces the case law on the subject, focusing on the recent Malaysian case of Miharja Development Sdn Bhd & Ors v Tan Sri Datuk Loy Hean Heong & Ors and Another Application (1995) 4 MSCLC 91,285.

Reviewing the Defence of Fair Dealing for Research or Private Study
Seng, Kiat Boon Daniel  •  [1996] Sing JLS 136 (Jul)
This article discusses the defence of fair dealing for the purpose of research or private study in the law of copyright. A recent decision of the High Court has identified some of the operative problems of this defence, and has ruled that the defence applies to commercial research. This article supports the spirit behind the ruling. It is contended that a literal interpretation of this defence will give rise to serious problems, and that a purposive interpretation should be adopted. this article also suggests legislative reform to clear up any possible doubts within this area of the law.

The Acquisition and Consequences of Cumulative Protection Under the Copyright and Trade Mark Laws of Singapore
Wong, Wai San Mary  •  [1996] Sing JLS 167 (Jul)
Intellectual property rights in Singapore are governed by separate statutes as well as the common law. While there are instances where cumulative protection under more than one intellectual property regime is either expressly acknowledged or restricted, there are other situations which are not so dealt with. This article examines one such situation, viz, how it may be possible to acquire both copyright as well as trade marks protection, and the consequences of such cumulative protection.
