The Private Life After Douglas v. Hello!
Richardson, Megan  •  [2003] Sing JLS 311 (Dec)
In the aftermath of Douglas v. Hello! Ltd., in which pictures surreptitiously taken of a New York wedding were published in a United Kingdom magazine, it is becoming increasingly apparent that privacy invasions are not restricted by national borders. The equitable doctrine of breach of confidence, which gave a remedy in that case, has shown adaptability in the face of changing circumstances and practices. The challenge for the future will be ensuring greater international harmonisation of substantive legal protection of privacy. Already there are some positive signs.

Writing and Signature in the Constitution and Proof of Contracts
Tan, Yock Lin  •  [2003] Sing JLS 333 (Dec)
The main aim of this article is to show that proof of pre-constituted contracts has been obscured by the parol evidence rule and the signature rule. After a brief demonstration that the parol evidence is primarily a rule of substantive law, rather than a rule of evidence, and, as such, must be rejected as the basis of the signature rule, it is argued that of three other possible bases, a theory of procedural fairness best explains the rule, leading to a narrower scope than hitherto supposed. The relationship between the signature rule and the Interfoto rule is next considered and the decision in PATEC, which has preferred the signature role to the Interfoto rule where they clash, is closely examined. The argument here is that although the Interfoto rule is complicated by provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act, both rules can be reconciled if the signature rule is kept as narrow as possible to reflect its concern with procedure fairness. The other aim- to show that proof of recorded contracts has been hampered by inappropriate notions of hearsay- is accomplished by a detailed study of section 32(b) of the Evidence Act and it is argued that the desirable solution provided by PATEC to the problem of records of a composite nature is a little oversimplified.

The Law and the Elderly in Singapore - The Law on Income and Maintenance for the Elderly
Hsu, Locknie  •  [2003] Sing JLS 398 (Dec)
To add life to the years that have been added to life. By 2030, Singapore's elderly will make up a staggering 19% of the population. With such a large proportion of people becoming old, it is timely to pay some attention to the broad spectrum of legal issues surrounding elders. Several sociological and statistical studies have been done on the elderly Singapore, yet relatively little has been written on the law relating to them. Much of the present legislation which directly or indirectly addresses the problems of the elderly in Singapore relate to their financial arrangements. Examples of these are provisions relating to withdrawal of Central Provident Fund ("CPF") monies and the age of retirement This article explores selected issues relating to financial support of Singapore's elderly, and highlights some areas in which the law does and can further play an effective role to safeguard their interest. Other equally important issues on housing, succession, divorce, capacity, elder abuse and crimes that impact the elderly are left for discussion elsewhere.
