All those companies apart from Yahoo are owned by either Singapore Press Holdings or MediaCorp.
Mediacorp are Government owned and SPH have very close ties with the SG Government (Former Chairmen have moved to high / top Government positions). Question is, do the individual sites incur the deposit or the underlying company.
To get a license to sell DVDs, CDs, VCDs (remember those) and other media, companies also need to pay a bond to stop them selling uncensored / sanctioned material.
Saying that I have never had any imported DVDs or Blurays stoped and examined (unlike in the UK) and the general rule of thumb is that a blind eye is turned to most minor infractions unless officially reported or political.
It is, for the most part, safe, clean and I can happily do everything I have wanted to do over the 6 years I have lived here. I have not been arrested, caned or hung even once.... yet.
