(4) The Trailers With Henry - Copyright Laws


"Even to this day, the protection of artistes' work continues to be an arduous task. I wonder how many local artistes know what is copyright. Why is copyright important? How long does copyright exist to cover the artistes' works? My personal view is: Anyone who takes another's musical works without the permission or compensation has infringed copyright laws.
Although I contributed so little, I am honoured and proud to be part of Singapore's pop history. The places visited; the many friends I've made will be things, "I'll remember and treasure all my life." Henry Suriya.

Artistes deserve to be compensated for their creative works. No question about that. This issue should not be taken lightly or, worse, ignored. They should seek legal advice to protect their IP. CHARLES WILLIAMS, UK

We can imagine Henry Suriya's concern. He has not been paid much for all the singing he did.

Hopefully it's not too late to get legal advice on his plight. CHARLES W.
