[Follow-up question] Will the expected amendment to Norway's copyright regulations to extend full retroactive protection to existing works from all other WTO Member countries also apply to phonograms and performances, as required by TRIPS Article 14.6?
The questions concerns whether the amendments to the Norwegian regulations implementing the TRIPS Agreement to the full extent, will give retroactive protection that will also apply to phonograms and performances - with reference to Article 14.6 of the TRIPS Agreement. The answer, to the extent one can look into the near future, is yes, and this implies that phonograms and performances originating back to 1946 will be protected.
