New Copyright Law Enters into Force in Montenegro

Aug 30 2011 - 16:28

The new Law on Copyright and Related Rights was adopted by the Montenegrin parliament on July 12, 2011. The law was published in the Official Gazette No. 37/11 on July 29 and entered into force on August 6.

The new law intends to eliminate weaknesses of the old Serbia and Montenegro’s copyright law from 2004 and strengthen the artist’s rights. The new law is in line with international conventions as well as with European Union’s directives as a condition for membership in the EU.

The law more comprehensively deals with the collective management of rights and introduces stricter state control of copyright collectives.
