  • Presents the international norms in their historical context, and explains rationales behind the rules and relations among them
  • Thematically organized discussion facilitates the reader’s understanding of the numerous and partly overlapping treaties
  • Approaches the topic from the perspective of tackling complex issues in practice
  • Balanced discussion of both copyright and related rights
  • Guides the reader to the more specialized commentaries for issues requiring further in-depth research.
A must-have introduction for scholars and students, who need to develop their understanding of copyright and related rights in an international context, and for practitioners and government officials who require a starting point for researching and resolving complex issues.
