In Singapore, criminal offences under copyright law include the following:

•possession or importation of infringing copies for the purposes of sale, hire, or distribution for trade or for any other purpose to an extent that will affect the copyright owner prejudicially

•a fine not exceeding $10,000 per infringing copy, up to a total of $100,000 per charge; and/or
•imprisonment up to five years.
The penalties for distribution of infringing copies for trade or for other purposes to such an extent as to affect the copyright owner prejudicially are:
•a fine not exceeding $50,000; and/or
•imprisonment up to three years.
The making or possession of an article specifically designed for making infringing copies, e.g. machinery for manufacturing infringing copies, is also an offence attracting the following penalties:
