        Parliament has passed legislation that provides a stronger legal framework to protect copyrights, especially with new technologies available that can take advantage of the Internet. Professor Jayakumar said the changes to the Act would bring singapore's Intellecutal Property protection in line with countries like the United States, Australia and Britain.
