Culture > Collection of National Copyright Laws

This site endeavours to provide access to national copyright and related rights legislation of UNESCO Member States.

The collection currently comprises about 150 laws and is constantly being updated and completed.

To access the laws, you need first to click on the geographical zone you are interested in, then click on the country name.

Please be advised that most Member States have provided us with official translations of their copyright and related rights legislation in only one of the official languages of UNESCO. Although the references of the laws are indicated in English, French and Spanish, the laws themselves, in PDF format, can most often be read in only one language.

Fore more information and comments, please contact copyright.law@unesco.org
