Copyright Act Notification


The Copyright Act (Chapter 63) of Singapore and its subsidiary legislation (collectively the "Copyright Legislation") limit the liabilities of network service providers ("NSP"), including Giosis Pte Ltd (Qoo10), in respect of various services provided under the circumstances prescribed in the Copyright Legislation.

As such, Qoo10 (as an NSP) will not be liable inter alia in monetary damages for any copyright infringements under the circumstances stipulated in the Copyright Act, so long as Qoo10 has complied with the relevant conditions imposed by the Copyright Legislation.

In line with the above, if you discover any infringement of your material, you may send a duly completed take-down notice to Qoo10’s Designated Person (at the contact address listed below) in accordance with the Copyright Act. Upon receipt of a valid take-down notice, Qoo10 will take reasonable steps to remove or disable access to the material in accordance with the Copyright Act.
