7. Article 10 of the Dutch 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 Dutch law.
The Copyright Act was amended by Act of 7 July 1994 (Stb. 521). Computer programmes were then included within the list of Article 10. Also special provisions on computer programmes were laid down in the Articles 45h to 45n.
