Thanks for the note. I was disappointed to note that CC SG was not even
invited. I've raised this many times with IPOS and they've only said a
cursory "ok", but never followed through. I will ping them again.

Thanks, Harish. I'm curious about the exact content in the IPOS message to kids. I hope it also inform kids what they CAN do in terms of respect and fairness, rather than what they cannot. 

Given the less-than-straightforward nature of IP, kids may end up receiving oversimplified motherhood statements. Seems to me IPOS should be targeting at teens in ITEs & Polys.

I just pinged the person whom I've corresponded with at IPOS and he has
left them in April. Now I need to rebuild the relationship. Let's see what
they come back with.
