Berne and TRIPS
TRIPS adopts the Berne principles and requires countries to adopt Articles 1 to 21 of the Paris 1971 protocol, with the notable exception of Article 6 on the moral rights of paternity and integrity. TRIPS extends copyright coverage to computer programs (as literary works) and to databases, and requires that a rental right is established for computer programs and for recordings.
The minimum protection required for all literary, artistic and scientiﬁc works is:
- the rights including translation, adaptations and adjustments, public performance and recital, reproduction, communication and broadcast
- moral rights of paternity and integrity
- a minimum duration of protection.
