What is the rule concerning copyright and related rights in my country?

0

While in some countries treaties are “self-executive”, meaning that the provisions of treaties can be directly applied as law, in general copyright and related rights are provided in national legislation of individual countries. International treaties link various national laws by ensuring that at least a minimum level of rights will be granted to creators under each national law. The treaties do not themselves grant rights, but rather require the countries that join the treaties to grant certain rights specified on a nondiscriminatory basis. Copyright laws of a wide range of countries can be consulted from the Collection of Laws for Electronic Access (CLEA) database of WIPO. For further information, you can also contact national copyright administrations.
