WIPO Broadcaster Treaty Working Group

About WBU-WIPO BTWG:

The WBU-WIPO Broadcaster Treaty Working Group is expressly organized to address the issue of supporting activities at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and elsewhere that will lead to the establishment of a Broadcaster Treaty, providing rights and protections to broadcasters that are currently lacking at the international level and are urgently needed.

While the members of the working group named by their respective Unions comprise the nucleus of the activity, it is expected that additional resources will be sought as appropriate to the success of the mission.
