Chapter Summary

Computer programs, whether in source or object code, shall be protected as literary works under the Berne Convention. Compilations of data or other material, whether in machine readable or other form, which by reason of the selection or arrangement of their contents constitute intellectual creations shall be protected as such. That computer programs be recognized as copyrightable works in the realm of Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) goes, to a great extent, back to the efforts of the US which in turn were encouraged by their domestic software industries. A computer program is defined as a set of statements or instructions to be used directly or indirectly in a computer in order to bring about a certain result.

Keywords: computer programs; data compilation; TRIPS
