eBay contributes towards Singapore’s IP Competency Framework

April 24, 2013

To support Singapore’s vision to become a Global Intellectual Property (IP) hub in Asia, the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) recently announced its investment of 65 million Singapore dollars to ramp up IP manpower and capabilities in Singapore in 2013. A new comprehensive framework known as the IP Competency Framework (IPCF) would be the key to build the capability of IP professionals in Singapore.

The IPCF was designed in close partnership with 57 IP industry experts to develop an overarching competency framework for IP professionals. Wee Choo Hua, Senior Director and Legal Counsel, from eBay Inc. Government Relations team, was invited to be a member of the IP Enforcement working committee to develop the IPCF.

eBay is proud to be a contributor to the IPCF.   We are committed to protecting the intellectual property rights of third parties and providing a safe trading environment for our members.
