AI Machine learning - Fair Use Defense under Singapore Copyright Act

In our earlier note, we discussed the computational analysis provision (under the Singapore Copyright Act) as a specific defense to machine learning.

This discussion might seem somewhat academic where it is possible to invoke the computational analysis defense. Nevertheless it is still useful to consider fair use defense in the context of machine learning, especially where a viable case can be made for the defense.
