The law mandates police permits for outdoor assemblies...

International Religious Freedom Report 2005 (Singapore)
In April 2005, two Falun Gong adherents were found guilty of illegal assembly and distribution of video compact disks that had not been certified by the Board of Film Censors. The two women chose to serve a prison sentence rather than pay fines of $12,092 (S$20,000) and $14,510 (S$24,000), respectively. They were released after a week once their families had paid the fines. The offenses were alleged to have taken place between November 2002 and March 2003. The law mandates police permits for outdoor assemblies of five or more persons and prohibits the distribution of films, including videodiscs, without a license.
Old news I know but I wonder what are the implications on my Linux Social Experiment plan. Anyone knows if a permit is needed to distribute software in Singapore?
