Chapter Summary

In November 1998, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) commenced discussions on protecting the rights of broadcasting organisations at its Standing Committee. According to International Bureau of WIPO, all the WIPO member countries have protection for broadcasting organisations. There are two different ways of protecting the rights of broadcasting organisations: one approach is to recognise copyright in broadcasts and other is to recognise the rights of broadcasting organisations as neighbouring rights. This chapter explains the approaches to the protection of copyright and the two approaches to protecting the rights of broadcasting organisations. This book aims at clarifying the rationale for protection of the rights of broadcasting organisations in order to provide a theoretical basis for reforming the current regime. It explores the formation and contents of legislation for protecting the rights of broadcasting organisations and discusses the current issues by means of a comparative study of Australian and Japanese law.

Keywords: Australian law; broadcasting organisations; Japanese law; World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO)
