What is it about?

This Convention relates to the establishment of an international system under which measures are provided to prevent distributors from distributing programme-carrying signals transmitted by satellite which were not intended for those distributors.

Why is it relevant?

This instrument considers intellectual property rights of authors, performers, producers of phonograms and broadcast organizations, in the sense that each Contracting State undertakes to take adequate measures to prevent the distribution on or from its territory of any programme carrying signal by any distributor for whom the signal emitted to or passing through the satellite is not intended. It also takes into consideration the rapid growth, both in volume and geographical coverage, of the use of satellites for the distribution of programme carrying signals.

Additional Information

This instrument is jointly administered by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
