G Follow-up to the review of legislation on copyright and related rights
55. The Chairman referred to the procedures for the review of legislation on copyright and related rights (document IP/C/M/7, paragraph 6 and document IP/C/M/8, paragraph 68), according to which delegations should provide the Secretariat with written copies of the follow-up questions they had posed and oral replies they had given at the review meeting. Written replies to follow-up questions to which oral responses could not be provided during the review meeting should be submitted within eight weeks after the meeting, that is to say by 20 September 1996. He wished to remind delegations of this deadline, in particular since a number of delegations had not yet given written copies of all the questions and replies they had presented at the review meeting or written responses to those questions that they had not been able to reply orally at the meeting. He informed Members that the record of the introductory statements made by delegations, the questions put to them and the responses given, including certain written responses provided after the meeting, would be circulated in a new series of documents (the IP/Q/- series). So far, one such document had been circulated, i.e. document IP/Q/NOR/1 containing the discussion on Norway's legislation on copyright and related rights, while others were being processed. The procedures for the review also provided that, at subsequent meetings of the Council, an opportunity would be given to follow up any point emerging from the review session which delegations considered had not been adequately addressed. This language should not be interpreted as limiting the possibility to pursue any matter relevant to the review of legislation.
