Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the various articles of the Agreement for the Universal Copyright Convention as revised on 24 July 1971, with Appendix Declaration relating to Article XVII and Resolution concerning Article XI, adopted by the Conference for revision of the Universal Copyright Convention convened by UNESCO. The copyright protection of literary, scientific and artistic works should be ensured by the Contracting States in all countries. A system of copyright protection appropriate to all nations of the world and expressed in a universal convention, additional to, and without impairing international systems already in force, can ensure respect for the rights of the individual and encourage the development of literature, the sciences and the arts. A universal copyright system can facilitate a wider dissemination of works of the human mind and increase international understanding.
