Singapore's Trade Marks Act turned 10 in January this year.

On 15 January 1999, an overhauled Act had come into force, enabling Singapore to meet the requirements of the TRIPS Agreement as well as the Paris Convention.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, the IP Academy is holding a discussion cum workshop conducted by Associate Professor Ng-Loy Wee Loon, law lecturer and author of "Law of Intellectual Property of Singapore". The issue du jour : distinctiveness in trade mark law. Happy for the opportunity for trade mark professionals to share, discuss and mingle, this writer has penciled this event (yes, the old-fashioned way) into her appointment book.

Anyone who is flummoxed by the greyed out "submit" button on the IP Academy registration page can just submit their application to register for this conference, by email, to the IP Academy. We use Safari on Mac OS X and this has been a problem for us, until today.

Thanks for the tip, Chong Yee!
