This book deals with a highly topical area: the protection of broadcasters’ rights. It is an area in which the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) has been working to draft a new treaty and has now reached the final stage for conclusion of the treaty.
The author analyses the formation and subsequent development of the legislation for protecting broadcasters’ rights, and discusses the current legal issues arising out of current proposals at the international and domestic levels to upgrade that protection. The focus of the work is the international protection of broadcasters’ rights as well as in the two jurisdictions which are representative of the two-different approaches to protection: Australia and Japan.
This volume provides a detailed account of the relevant international treaties and conventions as well as domestic legislation, and provides insightful arguments that present the optimal approach of the future protection of broadcasters’ rights.
