6. Has New Zealand applied or does it intend to apply § 234(o)(i) and (iii) of the Copyright Act 1994 in relation to the authorization of the rental to the public of computer programs and/or films (Article 11 of the TRIPS Agreement)? Is there any evidence of widespread copying impairing the exclusive right of reproduction of authors of films (Article 11 of the TRIPS Agreement)?
New Zealand has not applied, and there are currently no proposals to apply, Section 234(o)(i) and (iii) in relation to the authorization of the rental to the public of computer programmes and/or films. While there is no apparent evidence of widespread copying impairing the exclusive right of reproduction of authors of films, there has been some evidence of this occurring. For this reason, New Zealand has provided authors with the right to authorize or prohibit the commercial rental to the public of originals or copies of their films (Section 9 of the Copyright Act refers).
