As advised by the mod, I will continue the debate about privacy laws in singapore.
Synopsis: Personal blog images published on a commercial newspaper without prior authorization of owners
I though it was quite interesting that the newspapers' lawyers made the statement that
[quote] "In addition, our lawyers had advised us that as there are no privacy laws in Singapore, the use of blog pictures does not infringe a person's privacy"
Can anyone verify the truth to that statement? I am curious to what extent does this cover? For example, can i use other people's blog images on my commercial site for marketing purposes? Have a snapshot of some famous model to grace my Singapore commercial site?
