    Default Mentality of cosplayer/ non-cosplayer (surveys ends on 5th June, 1200hrs)

    *edited: I will be compiling the data for analysis on 5th June 1200hrs*

    Feel free to answer and provide reasons if you desire. Just wanna do a short analysis on current cosplay scene.

    Will involve some trademark related questions since we are the only nation in the world that successfully trademarked the word "cosplay".

    Qn 1:
    "To protect cosplay, someone has to own cosplay's name."

    disagree, there are many more ways which can be done without even getting close to something as stupid as attempting to apply for a pointless trademark.

    ____________________________________________
    Qn 2:
    "Trademark laws are created to prevent abuse of hobbies, culture."

    disagree, trademarks are as what it's name means, a mark which identifies the trade.

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 3:
    "I am a cosplayer, I dun need education on cosplay. I just need to be protected."

    disagree, i'm not an endangered animal who can't speak up for myself.

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 4:
    "I am not a cosplayer, I dun need education on cosplay. Cosplay needs to be protected."

    disagree, if i'm not a cosplayer and if i agree to this, it would mean i'm subconciously degrading cosplayers to animal status who can't speak up for themselves.

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 5:
    "I want protection by commercial entities and not non-profit organisations."

    disagree, if having a commercial entity protecting my interest means turning my hobby into a source of revenue for the commercial entity. no thank you.

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 6:
    "Cosplay is not a generic term"

    disagree, it was already a generic term in other countries like japan and the US before singapore got to know about the term. the media was just slow to use the term making it a generic term in singapore.
    _____________________________________________
    Qn 7:
    "I am educated on cosplay by clubs & societies"

    disagree to a certain extend, i know what i know from my own research from friends in japan/US and the internet.
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 8:
    "I am educated on cosplay by my friends"

    agree
    __________________________________________

    Qn 9:
    "SCC is appointed as the official representation of cosplay in Singapore"

    disagree, i don't recall at any point of time appointing them nor have heard them request to be the official reps of cosplay in singapore.
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 10:
    "local cosplayers is the representation of Singapore"

    Qn 1:
    "To protect cosplay, someone has to own cosplay's name."

    2) disagree - but owning the name doesn't implies the need to protect the activity as well.

    ____________________________________________
    Qn 2:
    "Trademark laws are created to prevent abuse of hobbies, culture."

    2) disagree - Trademarks are used to specifically identify a trade or a service. The law is to protect the mark from being abused to others.

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 3:
    "I am a cosplayer, I dun need education on cosplay. I just need to be protected."

    3) N/A - but i can say that such protection might not be necessary

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 4:
    "I am not a cosplayer, I dun need education on cosplay. Cosplay needs to be protected."

    2) disagree - protected from what. unless the activity is in a way profitable

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 5:
    "I want protection by commercial entities and not non-profit organisations."

    2) disagree - makes no difference. it all depends on how each respective entities values cosplay

    _____________________________________________
    Qn 6:
    "Cosplay is not a generic term"

    1) agree - it is formed from the word "Costume Play"

    2) disagree
    __________________________________________

    Qn 9:
    "SCC is appointed as the official representation of cosplay in Singapore"

    3) Neutral - Considering there are only two major clubs in singapore and SCC (or CCS) being the one that commands a higher profile, they can be the representative unless there is another entity up to challenge that position.
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 10:
    "local cosplayers is the representation of Singapore"

    2) disagree - representation in terms of what?
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 11:
    "Cosplay is a subset of ACG"

    3) Neutral - Cosplay is a subset of ACG, but can also be a subset of novels and such. one dressing as a elf from LOTR, Starwars is known as cosplaying too.

    Feel free to answer and provide reasons if you desire. Just wanna do a short analysis on current cosplay scene.

    Will involve some trademark related questions since we are the only nation in the world that successfully trademarked the word "cosplay".

    There is no need to protect cosplay.

    Disagree

    Trademark laws are created to protect business interests.

    Protected?! From what?! Err... global warming? LOL
    ____________________________________________

    Disagree

    Disagree that cosplay needs protecting.
    ____________________________________________

    Disagree

    Why would we need protection?! From what?!
    _____________________________________________
    Qn 6:
    "Cosplay is not a generic term"

    Disagree.

    Dictionary Definition of "generic":
    Not protected by trademark registration: “Cola” and “shuttle” are generic terms.

    Therefore, I think Cosplay is a generic term.
    _____________________________________________
    Qn 7:
    "I am educated on cosplay by clubs & societies"

    Disagree

    Since when?!
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 8:

    Agree

    This is true to an extent.
    __________________________________________

    Qn 9:
    "SCC is appointed as the official representation of cosplay in Singapore"

    Strongly Disagree

    Who appointed *them* as the "official representation"?!
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 10:
    "local cosplayers are the representation of Singapore"

    Do you mean:
    1. Local cosplayers represent Singapore (as a country)? - no relevance.
    - or -
    2. Local cosplayers represent Singapore Cosplay? - Agree.

    Cosplay in Singapore is represented by Singaporean cosplayers as a whole of course.
    This reminds me of a quote I used to hear in school a lot.
    "A school is only as good as its students"

    Therefore, Singapore Cosplay is only as good as Singaporean cosplayers.
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 11:
    "Cosplay is a subset of ACG"

    Agree

    I would think ACG is the primary motivator for most cosplayers, no?
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 12:
    "I want to know more about cosplay"

    Mildly Disagree

    What's there to know?
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 13:
    "I already know what is cosplay, I dun need to know more"

    Agree

    This may seem complacent but... what's there to know?
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 14:
    "History of cosplay in Singapore is not important to me"

    Agree

    This may seem complacent but... what's there to know? Though I think there are certain interesting "episodes".
    _____________________________________________

    Qn 15:
    "History of cosplay in general is not important to me"

    Agree

    _____________________________________________

    Qn 16:
    "Cosplay is a trend to me"

    Agree

    Noting that everyone who answered before me disagreed... But cosplay does seem to be turning into a trend...

    _____________________________________________

    Qn 17:
    "I dun dare to tell my friends I am a cosplayer"

    Disagree

    As long as I cosplay good, that's okay. If my cosplays look bad. I'd die of shame first.
    _____________________________________________
    Qn 18:
    I am a cosplayer

    Sad to say. There just seems to be so many problems and politics in this tiny community.

    To Mr Clive, Please get the right person.
    I am the one who trademark Cosplay and not the Singapore Cosplay club,
    and please stop all your stupid and dirty attempt in making the singapore cosplay club look bad.

    Firstly, As the founder, the first and only president of the illegal cosplay club, you betrayed the original members of the club by helping you to make Raywing and MAC look bad so that you can form an union to be the head of the union community. Thats why we all left you on your own to create your own CCS.

    secondly, after I told you I trademark the cosplay.
    And refuse to help you by using my word trademark COSPLAY to force the cosplayer to obey your cosplay definition, you create a fake account and leak the thing out and make me sound like I am a bad guy.

    Thirdly, You make a fake report to the police accusing The Singapore Cosplay club is a illegal club by using the agenda of your old illegal cosplay club. And mislead the police that all the cosplayer in my forum are orgainisng illegal outing.

    You are the one who started the illegal club and now you went to the police station and push the blame to me.

    and now i really wonder wat is ur main purpose of doing this survey?
    AND PLEASE STOP MISLEADING PEOPLE WITH YOUR STUPIDITY.
    When did Singapore Cosplay Club want to rule or represent Singapore Cosplay.
    We are just a club, and we hardly got the funds to cater cosplay event for all member not to say the entire Singapore. YOU are the one who want to represent THE SINGAPORE COSPLAY COMMUNITY, stop making the Singapore Cosplay Club the bad guys so that you can be the good guy and represent the singapore cosplay community.

    Okie the Singapore Cosplay Club surrender. and now you are the good guy and you can now represent the Singapore Cosplay community. All hail king Clive.

    Now if you excuse me Your Lowness, I have some Cosfest matter to attend to.
