The Copyright & New Media Law Newsletter began publication in 1997 as a print newsletter. Its initiation was inspired by the then two new WIPO copyright treaties, the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT), and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT.) The Newsletter has followed the two treaties from 1996 to their coming into force in 2002, and as the members to the treaties grow (each now has 89 member countries.) This week we witnessed a new WIPO treaty enter the international scene. Volume 2012, Issue 2 of The Copyright & New Media Law Newsletter has its first article on the Beijing Treaty on Audiovisual Performances. The Newsletter takes this moment to think about all of the domestic and international stories it has covered, all of the copyright experts and “practitioners” who apply copyright in their daily work who have contributed articles and have been the subject of interviews, and especially to our readers who subscribe in print and electronically. Thank you!
