Is there a requirement to register a licence of any of these intellectual property rights and, if so, what is the consequence of failing to register?

Intellectual Property

Singapore Small Flag Singapore

Copyright/layout-designs (topographies) of integrated circuits – No requirement.

Registered designs/patents/plant varieties/trade marks – Until an application has been made for registration of the licence, the licence is ineffective as against a person acquiring a conflicting interest in the rights in ignorance of it.
