The new Supreme Court of Judicature (Intellectual Property) Rules 2022 ("Rules") came into effect on 1 April 2022. The new Rules provide a new optional track for intellectual property ("IP") litigation. This new optional track is referred to as the "Simplified Process for Certain Intellectual Property Claims" ("Simplified Process"). The optional track aims to provide a quicker and more cost-effective dispute resolution system in Singapore, particularly for individuals and SMEs.
