The Berne Convention for the protection of Literary and Artistic Works came into being in 1886 and has been enforced since Dec 5th,1887. The Convention has been repeatedly amended since then, including the revision in Rome in 1927, in Brussels in 1948, in Stockholm in 1967and finally in Paris in 1971. The Berne Convention is the first and the most important international document for the protection of creators of such works. This document is the corner stone for the Copyright Law. The Convention introduced the novel idea of creating an assumed Union that would both adhere to the basic law of recognizing its members as national members and creating a series of mandatory laws and regulations called "minimal contractual rights".
