"...The Ministry of Law (MinLaw) will amend the Copyright Act in its effort to update Singapore’s copyright regime to better support creators and the use of creative works in an increasingly digital environment, an announcement revealed... a new exception for text and data mining for the purpose of analysis was proposed given that such data is often used to generate consumer insights for enhanced product development, although it is usually carried out with copyright infringement risks. The new exception will allow data mining on the basis that the user will have lawful access to the materials that are copied to governance and accountabiluty whilst opening up new business opportunities and reducing costs."
