2. Does Slovenia 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.
In conformity with TRIPS Article 14.5 the term of protection under the Slovenian Copyright Act is 50 years for both performers and producers of phonograms, computed as defined in Articles 127 and 132 of the Copyright Act. The "rule of the shorter term", as provided for in Article 181 of the Copyright Act, does not apply to WTO Members. In fact, this rule seems to be irrelevant whenever the requirements of TRIPS Article 14.5 are met.
