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 EZBUY HOLDINGS LIMITED (“ezbuy”), in respect of various services provided (e.g. transmission, routing, provision of connections, system caching, storage of electronic material and/or online linking) under the circumstances prescribed in the Copyright Legislation.

As such, ezbuy (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 ezbuy has complied with the relevant conditions imposed by the Copyright Legislation.

In line with the above, if a party discovers that the copyright of their material has been infringed (“Claimant”), they may send a take-down notice in a form, in accordance with the relevant requirements, prescribed in the Copyright Legislation ("Take-Down Notice"), to ezbuy’s Designated Representative (at the contact address listed below) in accordance with the Copyright Act. Upon receipt of a valid take-down notice, ezbuy will take reasonable steps to remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material in accordance with the Copyright Act.

In certain circumstances prescribed in the Copyright Act, once the allegedly infringing material has been removed, or access to it disabled, ezbuy will take reasonable steps where required by the Copyright Act to notify the party who has made such material available ("Respondent"). The Respondent may send a counter-notice in the form, and in accordance with the relevant requirements, prescribed in the Copyright Legislation ("Counter-Notice"), to ezbuy’s Designated Representative at the contact details below. Such a Counter-Notice must be sent within the time period stipulated in the Copyright Legislation. Upon receipt of such Counter-Notice, ezbuy will, in accordance with the Copyright Act, take reasonable steps where required by the Copyright Act, to restore the material or access to that material (if permitted), if it is capable of doing so, except when court proceedings have been commenced by the copyright owner to prevent that material, or access thereto, from being restored, and ezbuy is informed in writing of such proceedings.

All Take-down Notices and Counter-Notices must be sent to:
