Legal Update Newsletter September 2017

Our Part I of this Legal Newsletter introduces the legal article titled “Can a singer concurrently act as his/her album producer?” written by Lawyer Le Quang Vy and Paralegal Nguyen Thi Hang. In this article, the authors presented the inadequacies and limitations of Decree No. 79/2012 / ND-CP dated 5-10-2012 regulating art performances, fashion demonstrations, beauty and model contests, publications and trade of audio-visual recordings of music and dramatic works, as amended and supplemented by Decree 15/2016/NĐ-CP. In order to solve the problem indicated, the article provides a solution between the Law on Intellectual Property and Decree 79 and Decree 15 to promote and encourage more creativity in performing arts generally and singer in particular.

In Part II, we would like to provide you with some remarkable regulations as follows:

  1. New regulations on registration of security measures
  2. New decree guiding the liquor business
  3. Provisions on project development and standard contract for power purchase and sale applicable to solar power projects

Apart from the above, as usual, our Part III will provide you with a selected list of new regulations issued in September 2017 for your further reference.

We hope that this Newsletter is of use to you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
