Copyright and Related Rights
7. Article 1 of Norway’s Copyright Law lists the works that are protected as literary and artistic works under the Law. Computer programs, however, are not included within this list. As Article 10 of TRIPS requires that computer programs be protected “as literary works,” please explain how computer programs are protected under Norway’s law.
Computer programs are protected as literary works in Section 1, second paragraph number 12. Section 1 was amended in 1990 (Act No. 26 of 15 June 1990).
