Our Take Down Policy

Notice and Take Down Policy

The Copyright Act, Chapter 63 of Singapore (the “Act”) contains provisions related to limiting the liability of network service providers such as FUNDNEL LIMITED (“Fundnel”).

  1. Take-down and counter notices
    • Where a copyright owner or an exclusive licensee or an agent of the foregoing parties (“Complainant”) furnishes to Fundnel (through Fundnel’s designated representative) a valid notice in the form prescribed by the Act (“take-down notice”), Fundnel will take reasonable steps to remove or disable access to the relevant material in accordance with the Act.
    • Following the removal of or disabling of access to the relevant material, Fundnel will take reasonable steps to notify the person who made available such material (“Provider”) in accordance with the Act.
    • Where the Provider furnishes to Fundnel (through Fundnel’s designated representative) a valid notice in the form prescribed by the Act (“counter notice”) within six weeks from the date Fundnel notifies the Provider of the removal or disabling of access, Fundnel will take reasonable steps to restore the relevant material if it is technically and practically feasible to do so, unless court proceedings are commenced to prevent the restoration and Fundnel is informed in writing in accordance with the Act.
  2. Fundnel’s designated representative
    • The details of Fundnel’s designated representative are as follows:
      Khai Lin Chua

      Tel : +65 6747 5198
    • These details should not be used other than to provide Fundnel with take-down and counter notices in the form prescribed by the Act.
  3. The form of notices prescribed under the Act and offences related to notices
    • Please ensure that the take-down and counter notices you provide to Fundnel are in conformance with the form prescribed by the Act. Fundnel will not act on any notice unless the notice is a valid notice in the form prescribed by the Act.
    • For your information, the Copyright (Network Service Provider) Regulations sets out the form in which take-down and counter notices should be provided to network service providers.
    • Please be aware that the Act states that a person who, in making a take-down or counter notice, makes any statement (in Singapore or elsewhere) which is false or which such person knows is false or does not believe to be true, and which touches any point material to the object to such notice, will be liable on conviction to a fine of up to SGD 10,000 or to imprisonment for up to two years. Such person shall also be liable in damages to any party who suffers any such loss or damage that is reasonably foreseeable as likely to result from the making of such take-down or counter notice.
