Understanding Copyright and Related Rights

Understanding Copyright and Related Rights

Ratings: (0)|Views: 129|Likes:
This booklet is intended to provide an introduction for non-specialists or new-comers to the subject of copyright and related rights. It explains in layman’s terms the fundamentals underpinning copyright law and practice. It describes the different types of rights which copyright and related rights law protects, as well as the limitations on those rights. And finally it briefly covers transfer of copyright and provisions for enforcement.

Detailed legal or administrative guidance on how, for example, to deal with infringement of copyright, is not covered in this booklet, but can be obtained from national intellectual property or copyright offices. The further information section at the back of this booklet also lists some useful websites and publications for readers requiring more detail.

A separate WIPO booklet, Understanding Industrial Property, offers an equivalent introduction to the subject of industrial property, including patents for invention, industrial designs, trademarks and geographical indications.
