2. Does the Czech Republic apply the "rule of the shorter term" to phonograms and performances from other WTO Members? If so, please explain how you justify such action under TRIPS Article 4?
The Czech Republic does not apply the "rule of the shorter term" to phonograms and performances from other WTO Members. The term of protection of performers is fifty years starting from the end of the year in which a recording of performance was made. The same period is adopted for producers of phonograms and it starts at the end of the year when such recording was made.
