BOTSWANA SIGNS UP TO WIPO TREATIES

Botswana has acceded to the WIPO Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, with effect from 27 January 2005.

The IPKat is excited to know that Botswana's accession to the Copyright Treaty will benefit the writings of Alexander McCall Smith, whose stories of Mma Ramotswe and the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency have brought Botswana and its national cultural values before an admiring readership worldwide.
