2. Please explain whether and how the copyright law of the United Arab Emirates complies with Article 9 of the TRIPS Agreement requiring that Members comply with all Articles 1 through 21 of the Berne Convention (1971), except Article 6bis, since Members do not have rights or obligations relating to the latter Article under the TRIPS Agreement.
The 1992 Copyrights Law, Articles 37-44, provides for preventive measures and penalty including confiscation, the closing of the institution violating copyright and prison measures and compensation. The draft amendment will provide more detailed measures to enforce copyrights as referred to in the TRIPS Agreement. The obligations arising from Article 9 of the TRIPS Agreement (Berne Convention Articles 1-21 except Article 6bis) will be met through the extension of the scope in terms of the various categories and subjects of copyright as well as the nature of the protection.
