Yeap, copyright exists in Singapore. You may be talking about contracts/licenses when you refer to them as model releases. A model release in the strict sense of the word, is a document whereby the model releases her rights to sue a photographer under specific US legislation for use of her photographs without her consent. In Singapore, I am unaware of any such legislation giving such rights in Singapore.Originally Posted by yqt
In this case anyway, it would be unusual if the model owns the copyright necessary to sue Maxim. Unless of course the Photographer/Ad agency specifically assigned these rights to her, which is as I said, unusual.
Perhaps you can point me to the examples of the "cases" (names of parties will do) which you had in mind and I can look them up in my spare time.
