NO NEW COPYRIGHT LAW FOR BOTSWANA


Botswana has decided not to have a copyright act after all the Daily News Online reports. The Copyright and Neighbouring Rights Bill was to improve copyright protection and set up a Botswanan copyright office. A copyright society, responsible for facilitating collection and distribution of royalties, was also to be set up.

Botswanan dancers only benefit from limited copyright protection

If anyone knows why the Bill was scrapped, the IPKat would be interested to know.
