According to IBNA correspondent, Ladan Heidari, the Executive Secretary of the 5th National Conference on the Intellectual and Artistic Property Right related to this news: “Since the Islamic Republic of Iran has not yet joined the international conventions and copyright treaties of the author’s right, and the the Universal Copyright Convention protecting the literary and artistic works known as the Berne Convention.”
“For several reasons, the Ministry of Culture decided to devote the 5th National Conference on the Intellectual and Artistic Property Right and the opportunities and challenges of international protection of literary and artistic works, to the issue of generalizing the culture of respect for the rights of authors, composers and artists,” she said.
She further explained: “The Act of protecting the rights of the authors, composers and the artists passed in 1996 states that any work published in Iran, for the first time, is protected; however, it excludes those which are published abroad for the first time. This rule is derived from the principle of territorial protection of literary and artistic property right.”
