Berne Convention

Barne Countries

Copyright laws vary in different countries, though over 160 countries have signed the Berne Convention, a treaty that sets out basic rights of copyright holders globally, such as minimum length of copyright period. The map to the left indicates all of the signatories of the Berne Convention.

 

Since the specifics of copyright law depend on the nation of origin, it is important to be aware of copyright laws before using another person’s work.
